yes burning anthracite in hitzer 82 ul customized to furnace model. not quite getting the job done on colder days. but I just reconfigured my duct work and ran one pipe to nearest register about 6 feet from stove with 8 inch 500 cfm in-line fan. this may do the job. but I also have a large nashua wood stove and a vermont castings vigilent. I have been burning some wood in them its been to cold for the 82 to do the job alone. wood is expensive and in the nashua needs tending every 2-3 hours. this is my first year burning coal and I love the long burn times less mess. less space. I have read a little on here about burning bit coal in fire places and wood stoves like the long burn times and lower costs.

You may want to talk to a local black smith. They maybe using bituminous coal and could direct you to the source. Good luck, Lisa

I haven't heard of anyplace to by that coal, but I would think twice about burning any kind of coal in a wood stove. There just not meant for coal. On the other hand if you had a coal stove you can burn wood as an alternative in that. Think about buying a coal stove and burning anthracite coal, there are quite a few places that sell that.

I have a lot of people that burn lump coal in their woodstove to provide more heat when outside temps are cold and to provide a solid overnight burn. If you have a well-built stove with firebrick it won't hurt it at all unless you overfire it - and then it won't matter if you're burning wood or coal. Obviously any coal, even a good low ash bituminous still has much more ash than wood, so without an ashpan or grate system you're not going to want to burn just coal, unless shoveling ash every other day doesn't bother you.

i was going to try and get a coal grate like I have seen people on here talk about or at least a combo wood-coal grate I can get one of those in town easy. long burns and more heat is the idea. lump coal is also much cheaper than wood. I like cheaper. my wood stove is lined with fire brick not a problem. just need to find some local.
