you won't get good performance out of smaller sized coal. The best coal you can get is a good KY lump; longer burntimes and more controlable heat. Either the appliance is undersized (the hot blast just isn't a great coalburner to begin with) or you have crappy coal. look for a good KY lump at a local mine or coalyard; there should be plenty of good stuff available in your area.

Well the test and passed with temp outside teens with wind chill of 5 and 5 below inside 70s . That is good. Have to add 4 times in 24 HR.
