What do you mean from start to finish?

Bituminous coal from different areas will act differently so coal from one area will not fairly represent all bituminous coal.

carl is right, any such video would only be a general bit of info for bit coal of the same size and source, not a direct indicator of how all bit coal will burn. This is, however, a good idea. This fall I will try to put up a few videos of a few different bit coals' burn cycles.
