Anyone know good dealers in the Binghamton / Norwich area? I've been driving to Holenbecks Feed & Coal near Owego, but live in the Greene area and work in Binghamton. Would love something a bit closer to home or work.

I will say -- Holenbecks has been great. I bought my Leisure Line from them.

Welcome to the forum woodswalker, it should be noted most of the people here are located in the northeast part of the country as anthracite is only mined in Pennsylvania. The shipping costs even to states nearby make the cost rise and it becomes unfeasible. Shipping to Washington state would be unrealistic. Try the bituminous forum as that type of coal is plentiful out that way but has a lot of issues for residential use.

I am in East Tennessee and looking for a source to buy Anthracite coal as the primary source of heat in our house this winter. I'm willing to drive up to Pennsylvania to get it if necessary (We used to do that about ten years ago when we lived in Virginia), but if anyone has any advice or input on local sources, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

I'm looking for pea coal in the Upstate NY Albany area. I have about 1.5 tons in the basement and can get more of the same at a fair rate but I'm looking to try some from another vein. Burning what is bagged as Kimmel's now. Any input is appreciated.

Thanks for you insight(s).

Mr. Pete--->


Check out this guy... I believe he's in Saratoga Springs and he can get coal from multiple breakers including Reading or Blaschak.

:D

this is where i come in. im amazed by the erudition and conscientious veracity on this site. btw, the contribution key doesnt seem to work.

i grew up in batavia , illinois, straight west of chicago. in the early 1950s, the wealthy people still burned anthracite, it came by rail to Alexander Lumber Co and i used to toddle down there with my bucket or gunny sack to retrieve spilled coal. in fact, i watched Norman Rockwell paint the famous ice skating cover of 1958 saturday evening post; he painted it from the office of Alex Lumber.

anyhoo- right now i am experimenting with mixtures of wood and anthracite. lots of wood in northwest and also here in east-central indiana (when i retired i bought the house built by my ggg-father in 1834 - which is impossible to heat!)

osage and mulberry burn like coal and burn synergystically with anthracite - no smoke, no pyrobenzene, no smell...just HEAT. i just built a barrel stove with simple geometry (makes measurements easier) for quantitative tests

so far.....looks super good for extending practical geographic range of pennsylvania black diamonds

Try Steve at Cornwall Coal in Corwall NY. We purchase buckwheat from him and it is very hard, hot burning coal.

Anyone in NJ need bagged coal? I'm going to Scanton PA next weekend (12-15). I'm picking up 2 tons of bagged pea for $240 per ton. I have room for two more tons.

Let me know,

Scarecrow,

Bulk is alot cheaper. Especially for you since your so close. If you only need one ton I would call for local prices on bulk. Instead of driving to the breaker.

Looks like Lutz is close to you. Give them a call. I don't know anything about them.

Anybody using coal from Lutz in a stoker?

Link to coal near you.
