Hey Group,

I finally got my first baby stove of my own. Its an old Armstrong pot belly. I was curious as to what size Anthracite you think I should burn? The grate is about 6 or 7 inches. Overall the stove is only about 3 feet tall.

Nut-size would be my first preference. Pea will probably work fine as well. Get a few bags of each and give it a try.

Welcome to the FORUM my friend, :) Isn't that just so cute. I bet she'll put out some heat for you. Like Rob, my choice would be NUT. Keep us posted.
