What size coal? Is it self feeding? If not how many times a day must it be loaded?

This is a hand fed stove which would take the stove coal. And the number of times needing to loaded the stove would depend on how hot you are burning.

Root beer Fire Glass Beads 3/8-1/2 inch
BUYER BEWARE!!! The website picture is a poor representation of the true color of these beads. The actual color is significantly darker. If you wish to return item you will be charged a restocking fee and the cost of shipping will be deducted from your refund. I'm not quite sure on how they calculate their shipping fees (considering that the item cost $70.50 with FREE SHIPPING no matter where they are shipping to). The refund policy of charging a restocking fee on top of shipping costs is certainly NOT customer friendly! DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY UNLESS YOU ARE CERTAIN YOU ARE GOING TO KEEP YOUR PURCHASE. Simply put, their refund policy makes item unworthy for return.
