I was talking to Dean the owner of hitzer and he told me about your video. This was a very good video. You nead to get with hitzer and do more of these videos for them. I have been using the 983 for four years now and always find it intersting how other people burn coal .
Thanks alot, Vern. Glad you (and Dean) like the video. I almost lost my fire this AM--revived it with some wood. But if I hadn't revived it, and had to restart, I would have done a Starting a Coal Fire video. I'll get around to it at some point, but there are probably even more variations on starting a fire than there are on tending a fire.
Since you are a 983 veteran and this is my first year, I'd be curious to ask you how your 983 is holding up over the years? Have you done any repair or replacement of components?
Thanks again, and welcome to the Forum!.
