Very much appreciate the comments.....
I am in fact looking for two stoves. One as an insert in my somewhat finished basement so that when my boys are there entertaining their friends, I can keep the place warm. When I need to keep my pipes from freezing in the dead of winter, a stove that can burn the better part of a day without refueling. I do have a pellet stove in the back section where my pipes and water heater are located, having had them freeze and crack several years ago.
As for my basement office, which is separate from the other family room basement area, I am currently burning in a Fisher stove. I enjoy the fact that there is a door immediately to the left of the stove that I can bring my wood, or coal into. That is the stove I wouldn't have a problem replacing with a dedicated non electric coal burner.
I have heard of Baker, but do not believe there are any dealers nearby. Having only heard of Hizer from this forum, and already knowing about Harman and Vermont Castings, it is precisely why I posted this query.
There is no doubt in my mind that I will be burning coal next year. It is my intent to have a dual burner stove, or at least one that can burn a reasonable amount of wood when the weather is moderate.
I believe at least one of the Hitzer inserts is a double door, but I don't see that as a problem. Simply sounds like the earlier stove that Lucky 1 had was not up to the task. From what the majority of what the rest of you have posted, they seem to be a very solid consideration, which by this time next year, I hope to be advising others in a the same situation as I.
The rain has stopped, and I have some wood splitting to do. Have a great weekend!
