    Question:

    Can anthracite be used in a wood-burning stove? Maybe I overlooked that information.



    Answer:

    You cannot use coal in most woodstoves. The internal stove design is so different that the coal will fail to ignite and burn. You need a smaller fire bed, grates, and under the fire air flow to burn coal.
