First impression I think I'm going to have to use more primary air than I'm used to especially for this Lehigh coal. It burns good and hot until I back the primary down to where I normally keep it. Any thoughts?

Yea I just wasn't sure, that seemed odd having to give it more primary than the other coal, but I guess they are all different. I think I remember somebody saying it might take more air for Lehigh cause it isn't a gassy it is more straight coal.

Turning up the area is not out of the norm as their are generally less volatiles then you are used to with most other coals...

Gotcha! I'll keep ya posted. The stove was a nice toasty 350 this morning, shook Down and very little ash which lead to not having to put as much coal in on reload :D
