    Just curious why you would want to. You'd have to be feeding the heck out of that stove to get the same BTU's, plus I don't think the feed rates would work for you. Coal burns a lot slower than pellets I'd guess.

    the question is why would you want to? pellets are generally more expensive and produce less heat. do you not have a supplier of coal?
