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)
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..
