The one thing I'd suggest to someone new at it, at the risk of
observing the obvious, is to be very patient in watching the
grate temperature after cold lump to the fire. It'll take
20 or 30 minutes for the new fuel to get going and the fire to
come up to temperature. It's easier on the nerves to add too
little than to add too much.
