Hello all, I haven't been on in a little while but do have another question about the chubby stove! We haven't purchased one yet but will be doing so for next yr. but anyways, I've seen some post about heaping the coal up in the pot! Do you shovel it in thru the load door or have you dumped it in from the top thru the little plate/lid? Prolly think I'm nuts asking these questions and don't even own the stove yet lol, but just trying to get as much info as I can! I've scanned thru a lot of topics but haven't seen this question on there or I've missed it. That's all I did today was read about the chubby on nepa! Great site, lots of good info and really great people.
