Hello, all!

This is a great site!
I have an 1850 square foot, two story house, and I’m trying to find a stove with the largest fire box, and that is most efficient I will be burning mostly wood, but I want be able to burn coal also, if I need to, for some reason or another.
I checked out the Hitzer 354, which looks pretty good, but I think the Harman Mark III has a bigger firebox. Or are there other stoves to check out?
There are several large turkey farms in my area that are hauling stoker coal from Decker, Montana, so that’s the kind of coal I would be using, do any of you guys have any suggestions?
