I have been burning Hudson Coal in my Russo. If I stay attentive to the fire it burns well, but when I get it going good (450-500)before I go to bed at like 11pm or so I turn the draft setting to like 1.5 or so and at like 6am when I check it the temp is down to like 250 and the fire is barely lit and with the Hudson coal especially I have a stove full of white/red clumps and barely any ash. The superior coal doesnt seem to do it as much. Does anyone have any suggestions to prevent this problem? I can't seem to get it to burn overnight without attention. I personally think its the coal but I do not know.
That's one of the good attributes of Superior coal.It gives you a lot of time at the end of the burn to reload.From what I've learned about burning hudson coal it acts just like you said and I think that is normal with northern field white ash coal.But I'm sure coal berner will chime in,he's our resident coal expert.Of coarse our mayor knows a lot about Hudson also(he sold it for years).

I can get 12 to 18 hours with my Gibraltar stove using hudson coal (longer if i really close down the air supply). I have had no issues with it. I have both superior and hudson coal, both burn fine for me. Hugg
I am doing something wrong then, mine is not hopper fed, maybe I shouldnt ignite the whole bed before I go to bed and cover the top with new coal, I am just afraid of overfiring it while sleeping. I do not have a way to set my draft regulator and when it gets down to like 14 degrees it pulls a harder draft and wants to overheat even on a low setting. I need to figure out how to set the draft AND how to burn coal overnight.
Fairclough Fuel in Hampton (Sussex cty) is now selling Reading in bags. This was where I bought coal when I first installed the Harman, that would be the coal that wouldn't burn. They are selling Reading for $8.00 per bag.
Hudson coal. I have been burning the buck I bought from Hudson last week. Burns very good in my Reading utilty stove. Good heat and not much of a difference between the ash compared to the Blaschaks. The best part is I can pick up the Hudson for 150 a ton vs Blaschak 210. Just have to drive 10 more miles to get it. Think I will be buying more Huson .
