I know its seems early, but we are supposed to be in the 40's during the day and 30's at night and I don't want to waste the oil. Layer of coal on the grate, add coal mouse , more coal , light, close the door, plug in and feel the warmth! Took off with out a hitch! Except that I had to open the door to make sure it did catch, I put a steel plate in for the glass- after breaking the glass last week
trying to replace the gasket! I will not spend that much money on a glass! I had a piece of 3/16 steel in the barn that fit perfect!
