Coal berner,
I use to run one of those and had real good luck with nut. Make sure to adust the thermostat on the side so the flapper that controls the air into the damper does not shut all the way or else it will choke it. The manual for it said to do this. Good Luck.

I had thae same unit before going to the Yukon Eagle. I used to fill it up with approx 60-70 lbs. of nut coal. I ran good with the stat in the middle and the smoke damper out half way.
