I'm basically joking but might be an option.

To answer your question directly, I heated with wood for over 30 years now changed up to coal. Free wood is to difficult to obtain in the area I live. Also even if I did still get easy access to wood, coal is so much less work. As to costs, the last time I checked our nat gas vs. what I paid for delivered bagged coal, the cost was equal per BTUs consumed. My point is a central heat source is what we enjoy no matter the cost. Actually nat gas is cheaper this year as stockpiles are at an all time high per the Fox 5 news. So as I am breaking around even, we greatly enjoy the comfprt of burning coal.
Your stove is a beauty.
Thank you all for the responses. Now to purchase a few pairs of girlie gloves.
Now we have the Hitzer ash pan tote with lid. Will practice using it Thanksgiving weekend.

Not only is it important that hand part fit you should get a glove that extends well up the forearm. I have scars on my forearm from my early years when I brushed against the open door edges. I'm a little slow so it took me a couple of years to learn if the door is open, the gloves are on. Take care, Lisa
