Hopefully it will not take too much time and money to get installed. I did have the opportunity to speak with Larry yesterday and am thinking I would like for him to recondition the chub before winter arrives.
I have a double flue, tile lined masonry chimney. About 30 years old. The previous homeowner never utilized the stove flue. So hopefully the chimney is all set.
Not having much luck posting the chub's picture, I will try from a desktop tomorrow.
Thanks again, I very much appreciate the vast information available here!
Welcome to another Mainiac making the switch to coal. Most folks up here think I'm nuts but thats ok. I've learned to shut up about the benifits and keep the prices down.
"Let them eat pellets" is my rally cry. Forget what you know about wood and take the advise offered and you'll be fine. The Chubby is a popular stove. No need for a stainless liner in your flue also so don't let anyone sell you one of those. A tile lined masonry chimney is best!
