Alot of the mods now have coal as a standard item. Perhaps it is time to make it a standard in game item?

I think before that fires need to be set up so that there's some need to keep refueling a fire that's doing something (cooking or forging or whatever) --- making more effective fuels actually important.

Refueling won't be possible until tasks can be interrupted and resumed. In the case of the modded functionality of forging you can easily do that: just require a sufficient amount of fuel as part of the process. You can easily assume feeding fuel to the fire at appropriate moments is just a regular part of the process: there is no need to micro manage it as it just adds tedium. The fuel requirement is still valid though, but just bake it into the process.
A case where you might want to actually handle refueling is the smoking of meat/fish, but you don't want to be tied to your homestead for the rather lengthy process (yes, you can check nearby traps, but hardly perform any quests).

This would be a neat addition for realism.

yeah, agreed.  it would be nice if smoking required constant fuel, or else the smoked goods would spoil.  for roleplaying sake, i often try to keep my smokehouse nice and stoked.  it does start to feel pointless after a while...
