Re: 42"pompei -coal question-
 
We get this question asked a lot. Why don't you run an experiment and report back to us? I don't know if coal would burn right on the floor of the oven like wood does, or if you would need a grate to get air in from below. I think it's worth a try, particularly if you already have the coal.

I don't think I'd use it for the drying-out fires, though.
