NO, do not use a catylist with coal.. Please post a photo of the stove's firebox and grates.
Thanks for clearing that up!
The stove has all of these things, it's definitely a coal stove. I'm not very good with the coal, but we used to have a Russo insert with a blower that we burned coal. We could never get it to burn more than a day and an evening before having to shut it down. But we liked it just the same. We're looking forward to getting this Citation going. Hopefully we can keep it burning longer.
I'm at work now, so I can't take a picture, but I found a post with a picture of a salvo insert that looks the same, the top picture has a front identical to this one:
can someone ID this insert?can someone ID this insert?
