Going to resurrect this old thread. Has anything changed about coal availability for you folks in S Kentucky? I can get to the Amish one north of Nashville in about 3.5 hours probably. Are there any north of Knoxville that anyone can tell me of? It is maddening to do a search for anthracite on the computer.
There does not appear to be any dealers in Knoxville or Nashville. Thinking of getting the smallest stoker possible and tie it into my hot air system here in Chattanooga. Propane is almost $4/gallon!
Natural gas runs right bye me but is not available to this house.
Electric might be a better choice but I resist using it. Only about .08 per kilowatt here.
