Got my grate on tuesday but was able to keep the fire going with the pea stoker coal.
With the hard coal mixed in it and the ash build up and only able to shake the one side the hard coal seemed to fuse to the soft coal and i fished that all out over time.
Took all of 2 minutes to replace the grate after the stove cooled down a little.
Nice to know that it is possible to keep burning with just one grate with the stoker coal.
Wouldnt want to do it for very long but was nice to not here the %^&*( propane furnace turn on.
Wood love to try some good Kentucky bit some time as the subbit pea that i can get will not store for over a year so a truck load would go to waste at least 1/2 of it.
Well I'm back to burning, stay warm and this great forum cheers.
