This is the set up at our cabin. It only gets used a few times a year. A Barometric Damper is on the agenda.

Hello, I have been lurking this site for a while and found a lot of helpful information on it. I have been burning wood and coal for 15 years, but strictly coal this passed year. The old Riteway needs rebuilding, so I got a Hitzer82 which is almost identical to the Riteway.

The Kodiak finally arrived on Thursday + 1.5 ton of nut. Attempted to season it in the garage but couldn't get it lit. I was late in the day anyway. I started with charcoal then added 2" of nut and tried to help it along with a map gas torch it looked like it was on its way but when I got back to it it was dying. I rigged up a fan and put it in front of the combustion air vents but I think it was too late. I was thinking of smashing up some of the nut into smaller pieces and leaving the fan on it constantly when I add the coal this time. What do you think? do I need a longer pipe if it's out side? I have a tee on it now,that about 12" of pipe.

You won't get coal to burn in that shallow of a fire. If you just want to season it before bringing it into the house, I would use small pieces of wood, or a lot more charcoal.

First time I've seen the inside of a Kodiak, didn't know they used a circular grate, looks like a beauty though, good luck with it.

Thanks i guess I'll just try a charcoal and hardwood fire in the morning, I'm assuming I just want to get some heat in the fire brick at this point. I plan on taking most of it apart to lighten it up enough to get it in the house
Here is a picture of the grate.

Here's a picture of my new set up. Been up and running for a month. Its a 395,000 BTU coal stoker with a water boiler sitting on top of it. Its in my garage. Water is pumped into my ductwork and I use the fan on my propane furnace to take the heat off a heat exchanger. Figured cost of heat for the first month and its costing me $2.40 a day to heat my house.
I've got a 6 ton hopper bottom grain bin set up outside with a 7' auger that automatically feeds it when it calls for coal.

very nice, any pictures of the fire? btw, $85/ton for wyoming/montana subbituminous??? that's way too much, i'm paying anywhere from 65-100/ton for eastern bituminous and it's around 13,000btu's/lb. someone's overcharging you.

new here, but thought i'd post pics of my of my upstairs stove. when i have pics of the downstairs kachleoven (which can burn coal besides wood) i'll post that, too. don't know too much about the upstairs stove. it's a Wittigstahl mult-fuel, probably original to the house, can crank out a good amount of heat, and my 12 year old lab i brought with me when i moved from chicago to germany loves it (should have seen the look on the city official when she asked, "and where was your dog previously registered?" "chicago." jaw hits floor...
