Coal looks really nice and clean compared to what ive gotten in the past. Look forward to unloading into my containers in the am and to start burning it. Told it is very low ash and high btu's. Post the results soon.

The quality was great, but I designed my bin to hold 4 tons and always thought that the 4 tons was a little light. I researched how many cubic yards make up a ton and used 40. My supplier said that it was more like 36 or so. I looked into it and have to say that it is reasonable, however, I just purchased 4 tons from Wilson Coal in Sparta and they filled my bin up to the top! The quality looks the same, however, the real test will be after I burn it. I buy bulk but they also have bagged. I hope this helps.

Very little unburnt this year and low ash but season is young. Burned some bagged Reading last year as well and was not impressed. I would say for the price and the convenience its a good deal.
