    I recently acquired a free quantity of coal and want to burn it in my 32" Warner box stove. Is this possible if I use a coal grate and keep the air vent wide open? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You can burn coal if the stove is made for coal (bottom air, shaker grate, and secondary air).

    No, in that stove it is not possible. Trying will only result in disappointment or a hospital visit (I knew a guy who gassed himself and his family that way).
