Here's a picture of the shaker grate all the way over to one side. It "twists" the other way too. Basically, it pivots on that "X" you can see below the grate.

That's better than stationary but it's still not great, not much movement there. Only thing I can suggest is giving it harder shakes. e.g bang it around a bit assuming its sturdy enough for that but I wouldn't go overboard.

I just put the new seals on the doors so I think I'll fire it up and try it. Worst I can do is waste a bucket of coal.

How did the bucket of coal do.
I read this stove is only 5k btu, Is it really that small.

I haven't gotten to fire it up just yet. I don't know how many BTU's it puts out, the data plate on the back says 8000 watts, IIRC. Anyone know the conversion?
