I'm new to burning coal but I'm having alot of trouble lighting my nut anthracite. I started with what I thought was a good hot pine fire with alot of coals and added two or three inches of coal and it was like I put wet wood on the fire, went out instantly. I even tried putting a hair dryer under the fire for added air and it made no differance? Any help from the group would be appreciated.
thanks in advance
Hi Gary. I would recommend starting a new thread under the "Hand Fired Coal Stoves" area. I am sure your question will get quite a bit of attention there.
