Twice now I have made excellent baked potato's in my Harman SF250. Rather then firing my gas or electric stoves, I've been using my coal stove for so many meals, especially at this time of the year.
I wrapped a 1lb tater in aluminum foil and kept a small area of cooled ash just inside the stove door. The side wall registered about 500 degrees, although inside much hotter, and pulled it out 40 minutes later perfectly baked. Also steamed up some broccoli on the stove top in about 15 minutes.
Since the stove is in the basement all odors stay there and I get much needed exercise running up and down stairs.
Pan seared NY strips are up next!
