I am new to this forum and to coal burning. Thank you for all the great information.
I have a Suburban C6-78U Coalmaster.(It was free) I believe it was built in the 70's . I have burned a little wood in it and am now experimenting with coal. Does anyone have any experience with this unit or maybe an operation manual? The shaker grates on it are severely warped and it cant be shaken down properly. Can they be straightened? New parts are still available online but are expensive at ~$200.00 plus shipping for both sides of the rotating grates. Can anyone comment on whether it is worth while to restore this stove to full function?
