And it looks like you very quickly got the hang of using that range . ;)

How'd the Thanks Giving dinner turn out ?

Paul. I'm must admit I turned into a chicken on turkey day. Providing thanksgiving dinner for 15 family members was too much pressure for me. The wife and both agreed not to chance it although there were some that i told I had planned on baking the turkey in the glenwood where slightly dissapointed. I'll continue to build confidence and surely will next year. I'll bake a chicken this week and see how it goes. :D

Not chicken, Kevin, just smart! ;)

With all that's going on with entertaining and feeding 15 people, plus such a short time with the range in operation, that's not the time to be learning how your range's oven temps and refueling/ash shaking timing needs are over the course of a long baking session, and how that is affected by your system's draft strength for those outside temps. Better to spend more time learning the "how, what, and when" so as to make the, "learning curve" less like the shape of a hangman's noose !!! :D

Woke up yesterday to 10F, windy, and snowing. No weather to go out in for Christmas shopping. But, a coal range gives us an enjoyable alternative.

What better way to spend that kind of weather then to be by a coal stove and make a batch of orange marmalade for family Christmas presents, while enjoying that steady warmth. And no crowed roads, parking lots, and stores to have to put up with !!!! ;)

And a part jar left over that I got to sample it on bread. Would have shown it on the bread, too, but, it doesn't last long enough to get to that part. :D

Looks great Paul !! I'm sorry to inform that I diconnected the cook stove. Despite it doing a good job of heating the house , I couldn't get those long burn times I needed. I'm out of the house for long hrs and I've come home to a cold stove more times than I could bare. I did however get 12 hr burn times on occasion. The wife can't or won't tend the stove likely because of her schedule. It was fun while it lasted. It will get reinstalled when I can fit into my kitchen renovation plans.

Scott. Pizza was great!! All the food I cooked on my range tasted better coming from this stove than any other. I will miss it for sure.

Kevin,
If you got 12 hour burns on occasion, then with that deeper firebox of your model E it should easily get consistent 12 hour burns and longer. If I remember, your E has about a 50% deeper firebox than my Sunny and 12 hour burns are the norm if I clear ash and reload it right. Often it goes longer than 12 hours if I don't use fast burning coal like TSC's Kimmels was last year.

When your ready, pm me and we can discuss some things to check/try, if you wish.
