been a while since my last post. been burning blacshak nut (bagged) coal since October I need to find the cheapest place to buy the same coal. I live in Union Beach, NJ don't mind traveling to north jersery or eastern pa I can pick up a ton - ton and a half no problem. With the help of this forum I have been able to figure out how to run this stove, save some fires and stove has been running fine. :D

Thanks Mark

Hi Mark,
I have used Aerni and Hitzel out of Easton, PA for my Blaschak. Give them a call first if your going to pick up a load, just to make sure someone is in the yard.

Definitely call to schedule a pick up apointment if you decide to go the A&H . A friend at work went in October and it was very busy. It's jus over the Rt 78 Delaware River toll bridge.

That's $7.20 per bag, Blaschak bags are 40 lbs. Too much $$$.
American Coal, Lafayette, NJ, Kimmels in 50 lb. bags, $6.75 per bag. 973-862-0079.
Or if you are really adventurous a trip to coal country is in order, but you need to be able to haul bulk.

I'm assuming you didn't google map and find out where Chatsworth NJ is. :lol:

How much coal do you have in that back of that Ford?

Sweeperman said he lives in Union Beach, I know where that is. His stove was made in Chatsworth. That's a tad further south. He did say he didn't mind driving...

live in Union Beach, NJ don't mind traveling to north jersery or eastern pa I can pick up a ton - ton and a half no problem.


Lafayette is in North Jersey last time I checked! In the good part of the state. :twisted: :D :) :D

That load of buck was 3,420 lbs.

:oops: I stand corrected. :lol:

IRT sweeperman - I'll stand by the Kimmels that crazy4coal sells. This year's batch is better than last years and if you don't mind the haul to Lafayette, you wont be disappointed.
