Hello, I have been lurking this site for a while and found a lot of helpful information on it. I have been burning wood and coal for 15 years, but strictly coal this passed year. The old Riteway needs rebuilding, so I got a Hitzer82 which is almost identical to the Riteway.

The Kodiak finally arrived on Thursday + 1.5 ton of nut. Attempted to season it in the garage but couldn't get it lit. I was late in the day anyway. I started with charcoal then added 2" of nut and tried to help it along with a map gas torch it looked like it was on its way but when I got back to it it was dying. I rigged up a fan and put it in front of the combustion air vents but I think it was too late. I was thinking of smashing up some of the nut into smaller pieces and leaving the fan on it constantly when I add the coal this time. What do you think? do I need a longer pipe if it's out side? I have a tee on it now,that about 12" of pipe.

You won't get coal to burn in that shallow of a fire. If you just want to season it before bringing it into the house, I would use small pieces of wood, or a lot more charcoal.

First time I've seen the inside of a Kodiak, didn't know they used a circular grate, looks like a beauty though, good luck with it.

Thanks I guess I'll just try a charcoal and hardwood fire in the morning, I'm assuming I just want to get some heat in the fire brick at this point. I plan on taking most of it apart to lighten it up enough to get it in the house
Here is a picture of the grate.

Here's a picture of my new set up. Been up and running for a month. Its a 395,000 BTU coal stoker with a water boiler sitting on top of it. Its in my garage. Water is pumped into my ductwork and I use the fan on my propane furnace to take the heat off a heat exchanger. Figured cost of heat for the first month and its costing me $2.40 a day to heat my house.
I've got a 6 ton hopper bottom grain bin set up outside with a 7' auger that automatically feeds it when it calls for coal.

very nice, any pictures of the fire? btw, $85/ton for wyoming/montana subbituminous??? that's way too much, i'm paying anywhere from 65-100/ton for eastern bituminous and it's around 13,000btu's/lb. someone's overcharging you.

new here, but thought i'd post pics of my of my upstairs stove. when I have pics of the downstairs kachleoven (which can burn coal besides wood) i'll post that, too. don't know too much about the upstairs stove. it's a Wittigstahl mult-fuel, probably original to the house, can crank out a good amount of heat, and my 12 year old lab I brought with me when I moved from chicago to germany loves it (should have seen the look on the city official when she asked, "and where was your dog previously registered?" "chicago." jaw hits floor...

look on peoples' faces as they feel the radiant heat and see the coal fire...priceless

Hot Air Coal Stoker Stove: Alaska Channing III
Other Heating: Gas FA
Stove/Furnace Make: Alaska
Stove/Furnace Model: Channing III
Location: Western MA

Post Fri. Mar. 20, 2009 2:24 pm

I'm a bit slow posting this...It's been a busy period for me. But here's my now 6-week old Channing III...

The heat vent off to the left is connected to the hot-air side of my gas furnace, which has been off since I installed the stove. Also visible is my combustion air pipe running along and down the back wall.

.....

Almost forgot...sometime this summer, it's going to get a 'jacket' to collect warm air from the 600+ degree sides (when set on 4!) and run that up to the hot air up, too. The pictures BKSAUN posted of his stove convinced me!
