Yup, burnin' & Grinin'! Life is good, just retired the first of November, have a full coal bin...well it was full this fall.
The stove has been idling along really well all day today. It is about 68° in the garage and the oven temp says 250°. If I had shut the primary air down this much before, I would have lost the fire. I truly am happy! I have not tried to get a hot fire going yet, but I am confident that will work just fine. Now I am off to tend the base burner in the living room...love heating and cooking with coal.
