Well, I just bought three tons of cannel coal, and two tons of hard nut coal. That with the advice from you guys has got me going REALLY good. I don't have the new chimney up yet, BUT...I built up my fire, put about a four to five inch bed of red coals, then filled up the box with more coal. I didn't fill it the WHOLE way, but I put on another five to six inches of fresh coal on top. I left a smallish (Maybe 3" deep by 20" long.) and the temp was at 180*. I JUST checked on it, and it RAMPED up to about 230-240*. WOW!!! The OTHER garbage I was using would've had my temp at maybe 100* by now. Now, granted, I didn't build up the bed like I did this time, but this coal is AMAZING. I had the ashpit door COMPLETELY closed (Which still has a VERY small opening around the whole thing), and left the chimney draft open. After I checked on it, I closed the chimney damper about 75% of the way as well. I'm hoping this keeps the temp either steady, or brings it down a little bit. I'm REALLY confident that with the advice about the coal bed has DRAMATICALLY reduced the amount of time I'll be messing with the fire each day. Right now, I just have to "fine tune" how hot to get the fire. Thank you all for your wonderful advice, I'll keep you posted on how it's going.
