We used these all kind of stuffs in our home. We have not habit of using the Morden appliances like gas,stove. Cuz it's so expensive in our country to use it. I am from Nepal. We used her in our village everything natural. We totally dependent on nature with 💯%
We have wood and natural gas, Coal is not legal( unless you have a really ancient system).
There's a joke in there somewhere lol
Hey it's Trumpkin!
Peat seems like pretty useful stuff. Burns well, lasts long, and is relatively cheap in bulk. I'd have to say that's because of its ease of access and vastness, seeing as all you'd have to do is go to a bog and start digging
I live in Appalachia. (Tennessee, USA) We burn wood as it's cheap or free if we harvest it ourselves off our farm which we do most of the time. Also there is a sawmill right up the road from me so I can get the outside cuts for 10.00 for a 16 ft trailer load. We use the ash in our compost :)
I live amongst an uncountable number of trees, so for burning, it's always wood.
I know that I am a bit late to the party but I just wanted to know if anyone here has tried burning charcoal and if so what did you make of it?
I say coal because you’re hat is black but I’m not watching till the end

Here in Texas we have 4 options, electric, natural gas, propane gas or wood. Our house is electric and has no other options. My person favorite would be natural gas as its clean and cost effective. I do love a wood fire but you need a fireplace or stove with a chimney which we don't have. On the upside the really cold days are few here.
We use wood here.
