Thanks man! This stuff is great ... lots of smoke & smell ... & some of it is still burning 12 hours+ later. I threw all the biggest chunks right on top of the anthracite that was already burning from the night before. Didn't take long for that stuff to light off & start belching thick grey smoke. What I noticed is that smell is familiar ...... I had a few pieces that smelled just like that mixed in with the Kimmels I had last year. Hmmm...
For about 3 hours, smoke poured off the roof & into the street ... like fog!
The wife said she had the smell in the Jimmy the whole way to work. I told her I could fix that with some gasoline & just one well placed flare, but she needed to get to work & back ...
I did take one big chunk out of the bag for a souvenir though ... stuff is pretty rare in these parts.
I noticed my coils looked wet, oily black after burning for a while ..... but only one corner of the glass was black. I'm sure one hot fire will burn that right off anyway .. not worried about it - just commenting. Good way to find all the leaks in my chimney & connector piping! Turns out, all the leaks are in the basement!
I figured that rickety chimney in the attic would leak like a sieve ... I was wrong.
Good stuff though. I think if I burned it on a regular basis I'd be busy cleaning the chimney quite a bit though ..... but for the money savings, I wouldn't mind cleaning. $60 a ton ... or $300+ a ton .. hmmmmm!
