Just make sure you close the overfire air spinners when burning coal.
My New yorker and my freinds Harman Manual both say to leave the overfire spinners open some until the coal is burning to prevent coal gas from building. I know nothing about burning coal, just what ive read.

You can do that, but it's easy to forget to close the overfire draft once the coal gets going. If you add the fresh coal a little at a time and leave some burning coal exposed you won't have this problem.
