Hello Everyone,

I appreciate all the responses I received - added you all as friends, hope no one minds... I will have to get a pallet of coal to even get past half the winter here on Kent Island, Maryland. So I guess I'll wait till it gets in the 40's or even freezing till I do my firemen bit in my workshop, (that is, if the wife permits it) :surrender: till then it looks like I'll just be burning up my old wood and yard waste. I will keep everyone posted when I first put the coals to it - and keep her going.

I don't know if it is recommended or not, but I have attached a view to my mancave - workshop. I like it out there, it is like a trip back in time to me - which is much better than living in the present climate politically speaking, in my estimation.. :!:

I have a Shenendoh stove, a wood only version. I wore it out. It was probably used 15 years all together. I overheated it a lot and burned high btu things in it I better not mention :lol: It rarely gets used now, but its in poor shape now. I could throw green wet wood in it and it would still burn. If you have trouble with coal for any reason it will still burn wood well.
