We have a jotul, that we have a coal hopper for. We got anthracite nut coal for it. We are having a hard time getting it to light. Is there a trick to it? Did we get the wrong kind of coal? Since this is not a furnace, most of what I'm reading is for the coal furnaces not little stoves. Can you help us?

ps. I couldn't listen to the broadcast, my system wouldn't load it.

I live in a big house and it is not unusual for the monthly bill to hit 450-500 bucks.Right now i am using a bit of electricity,but i am going to get a big truck full of firewood.I ain`t gonna pay a single nickle since all they want to do is outsource and fleece.The company had the audacity to tell me that they have to import the gas from overseas.The fact is that America has way too much natural gas and it is in fact american natural gas that we are paying for.
