We have been using Mellingers for the last 10 years. Very prompt, courteous, friendly, and a good value. Last year cost us $212.00 + $4.00 delivery for a ton of nut delivered and chuted into the basement through the window. Plus a $20.00 tip to the driver. He gets it from Reading Anthracite. Its great quality nut and it burns very clean and thorough as long as you are burning it right and hot. If you are not burning it right and hot, you get uneven burning coal and excessive sootage. Heck, the first thing I do every year is burn one very hot for an hour at full blast. That blasts alot of the sottage that does develop over time.
We have limited outdoor storage space as well, so I built a tiny room in the corner at the window in the basement for coal storage. Works like a breeze and since its confined, no coal dust in the remainder of the basement from the chuting.
