Lehigh Anthracite Pittsburgh Pa Area!

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

I got my first batch of Lehigh nut in the stove and it was running good and hot until I put the primary air where I normally run it, then it started to cool off. So my question is do I need to run more primary when burning Lehigh coal IS THIS NORMAL? I just hope it doesn't cause it to burn up too quickly, however I'm told it has longer burn times. Any thoughts

Lehigh generally is higher carbon and less volatile's than other brands so it is not out of the ordinary to have to adjust....

Just did my shake and load everything looks good. As far as ash maybe a little less not much though, but it does turn more to a powder. Got to say Lehigh is high quality. It passed this test. Last test will be when it gets cold.
