I wouldn't want to try any of the Bituminous coal I've used over these years, in a Chubby. I get way too many clinkers, all different sizes.

I am just learning to burn coal. The cost of Bit here is $17 per 50ln bag. I don't like it I much prefer Ant.

This is my fire between layers
I don't understand why the picture posts sideways

That is neat. Is there a glass door or is it completely open?

Vonda, have you tried turning your phone (if you are using one) when you take the picture?
I have a laptop computer and put the pictures on there, rotate them, then put them on the forum.

Don, the pictures are fine when I take them, but some this forum turns then sideways when I post

I think I have the solution. Any picture I take as landscape will post sideways . If I take a picture as portrait it will post as portrait .

If you can fit a 6" stove pipe up the flue you are in business. They also make oval liners. If it's a blower model they really move the air around. Just hate to see you go through any unnecessary grief.

I set up a class A chimney for my chubby last year. I chose a location that did not require a long run of class a stainless steel pipe, it's expensive. Mine runs about 6 feet above the roof of a sun room. It has to extend that length because another roof line is near, for the main part of the house. You need to go to your town hall and get the specifications from your building inspector. Follow them exactly. I can tell you they measured the clearances exactly to the standards when they inspect it. Also be sure to consult you home owners insurance. Mine said no problem as long as it passes inspection. I found an HVHC guy who is licensed and does the work on the side. My total cost was around $1200.00. Be sure to have working smoke and CO detectors too. The chubby is a great stove. Hopefully you can find a good source for coal. I hardly burn wood at all. Coal is just so easy to use. 12 hour burn times, no sticks and twigs on the floor. Good luck! :)

Asea, after reading the posts, I am going to run it through my fireplace. It was just redone and it sticks up high above my roof line. I call my insurance and they are ok with the stove. no increase on my insurance . Co detector installed. ( I need to buy another one). Looks like I'm good to go. I need to call Larry, to see if there is a junior available . When I spoke with him last week, he was shock that I was able to burn anthacite in an open fireplace and didn't realized that Atlanta will go down in the 30s
