I have burned some of that Tamaqua stuff a few years, it was good coal. The black plastic is very resistant to UV light from the sun, it will age far better than the blue for sure. :)

I got some extra sheets of the black plastic and covered the coal. The coal is under a giant maple tree and I want to keep all of the leaves out of it.

Here is a picture of the Stanley Argand installed in the now retired fireplace. It is a little off center on the hearth because I couldn't center the pipe around the damper hanger assembly without breaking it. I want to be able to return everything to as was someday when I finally am able to buy my own house.

Thank you. This picture didn't turn out so well though. I think it looks okay on the stone hearth.

BTW: If anyone is interested, I just checked the Barnstable Stove Company's website and he has another parlor stove that is almost identical to the one I got. With the way demand is going currently, I don't think it will last long before somebody snaps it up.

I lit the first fire of the season last night and the stove performed well. The coal easily lit with just a few sticks of kindling wood. Stove top surface was around 400 degrees with maybe five pounds of coal on the grate. Here is a picture. I really like the way the fire shows through the fancy castings.
