I think technically you can burn coal and wood, but the EPA says no wood! I do use wood to get the fire going when it's almost burned out, though.
Thanks so much for the info on the upper spinners being primarily for wood and the lower for coal
You guys are gonna make me a pro in no time!!
My house is hanging out in the low 70s, which is perfect. Let's see where I'm at when I get home from work this afternoon!! I turned the lower spinner down to about one and three quarter turns.
And Rob...yes, I have a mess!! Most of it was already there, but I admittedly am not the swiftest at making sure all the coal actually makes it into the fire!! Sometimes I toss it in and it rolls back out!!
