Paxinos,PA here.
Had pellets since 2001and was enlightened when I found this site. Bought a refurbed Magnum stoker from a member here,Coalkirk. Built my chimney and coal bin over the summer months and am now being warmed by the original geothermal energy,COAL.
I get my coal from UAE Harmony in Mt.Carmel,but I work in Schuykill County and have the choice of 3 different breakers close to my work, I like the stuff from Hamony.
I saw a sign on the former Split Vein Coal Co. breaker along Rt61 that said they had coal, I might give some of that a try.

i would have to pick it up myself right? i dont have a truck or i would consider it. i get my coal from withmer fules in sunbury. they get it from the hazelton area, but i dont know if the quality is good. i see a lot of small peices of wood and a lot of fines in the coal. not to mention a lot of clinkers.

Brock, have you seen Stroker Stoker floating around Sunbury in the A-dust fired hot air balloon? Careful beneath the damned contraption. It uses a mongrel boiler setup...something between a hand fired and a "Has Been Fired Stoker" of his own design. About the size of a 750K stoker. Scotty calls it "My little Chubby!"

I heard it is nearly as secretive as a B-2 bomber. At 1.3 billion a copy, the B-2 and the Stroker Balloon have a great deal in common: each sucks down the fuel; each one is a cover story item; and the Stroker calls his 'Little Chubby'. which appears to be a family name for some part of his anatomy. They both are capable of leaving a path of destruction, are nukey equipped......and so on!

If you smell something like greasy popcorn, he is testing the damned bagged corn as a fuel again. Kinda like a Mickey D's 'bio-fuel backup'. Greasy and stinky...........causes a rapid departure from his fantasy world, and back to the "Stroker Stoker Easy Dumper" that follows the A-dust balloon.

It is a joke, but someone was pulling your leg.......snotty has no friends, so don't believe him about a friend in Sunbury.

Stop over to Lenig's, they are nice folks and you can get a delivery from one of their guys. Closer usually means better pricing for local folks. I have a few names if you can't get set up easily.

Stroker Stoker usually 'dumps his fire' in the A-dust balloon before landing, so keep an eye out for a 2500 degree blob falling from the sky. You'll recognize him smoking a corn cob pipe.....upside down. As his mother always says when she greets him: :wtf:

i ll keep that in mind. Do you know what it would cost per ton for pea delivered to sunbruy. and i have an extremely tight fit for coal deliveryto my house. whitmer fuels used a six ton lift truck and was able to fit into my alley. they had to angel the shot 90 degrees to get it into the basement. the alley is only about 8 feet wide.

In good ole Schuylkill County here in Cumbola, near Port Carbon and New Philly. I get my coal from UAE aka Harmony Mine in Mount Carmel. Well worth the trip, about 30 minutes from my house. Dan

I live in Montoursville, about 35 miles North of you. I also get my coal from Calvin Lenig's coal 54 miles from my house. Picked some up about a month ago $140.00 @ ton. Seems to burn pretty good so far.
