Fatscos are interesting, but largely stainless steel and I don't think they have coal grates.
I'm sitting next to my Fatsco, burning hot. It is my second winter in water. I use charcoals, I just can not find a reliable source of anthracite. Anyway, the stove have an inner iron insert and an iron grate. Yes, it is assembled using stainless steel parts, however the inner lay of the stove is iron. I would't hesitate to use a coal in it.
