I'm sure that those top ten folks know how to start a coal fire by now.
My first time, I thought I had defective coal
I jumped on the coal bandwagon when oil hit five bucks a gallon.
I thought to KISS it and put in a Hitzer insert ... glad I did.
Smooth sailing (well, not always smooth) since.
Going on 5 yrs now ... still learning ... still willing to learn.
This forum is a valuable asset to the coal burning community.
Gallons of oil burnt for heating the house since: zero......sweeeeet !
