What is required to burn Bituminous coal in a EFM stoker? I know the manual says not recommended, but specifically why not? If farmers can burn corn it it then cheapskates can burn bit coal in it, no?

The reason I hear is that it would clinker itself to death. It might also be too hot for the plates.
