Ditto on the 'load it up to the top of the firebricks' the amount of air it gets determines the amount of heat!
I want to install a half brick high extension to the MarkII in front so my 'mountain O' coal' stops rolling out the front door!

I added another full layer of firebrick to my TLC2000 last year & it makes loading allot easier (no more cleaning coals off the top of the firebrick) & allows me to get a bit more coal in the stove by banking towards the back too, for longer burns.
