Coal Is Good

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

Drank a few beers in my cave across from the glowing Keystoker 90. Dialed it in quick and easy this year. Not uncomfortably hot, definitely not cold, perfect warmth.

My daughter said goodbye to her boyfriend this morning. He is leaving for another tour in Afghanistan.

Not only is coal the cleanest, easiest solid fuel I have ever used, it is also the warmest, both in temperature in the house and temperature in the heart, knowing we are not sending our money out of the country!
US dependence on foreign oil has created the greatest transfer of wealth in history.
