I didn't pay attention but have burned through my first tote (ton) of Lehigh Rice. I bought rice and buck and was thinking of switching over to buck on my next tote to see how it runs through this boiler? It is rated to burn it but I have no experience so I thought this maybe a good time to see how it burns or should I save it for colder weather?
I would call Matt at LL and ask him. You may need to slow the stoker,
open the shutters on the forced draft fans to increase the combustion air
for the stoker and readjust the power venter and the feed gate in the hopper
too as the coal is larger in size too.
