Superior has a good product, and from what I have read on here Blaschak is liked by some and not so much by others. You would save $50 a ton at Superior, unless they raised prices since my last delivery, and if you have the ability to haul several tons at a time it would probably be a cost saving proposition to take that half day but if you only plan to buy less than a ton at a time I think I would get it locally. You will have to figure the cost of your trip and value of your time. There are many folks on here that have spent a lot of time and who knows what cost traveling around trying different coal from different sources and different breakers, to them it is probably more of a hobby than anything and they may have their idea of the “best” coal. I get mine at Superior because they are closest and some other reasons not relevant to this discussion.
PS I just read tsb’s reply and he makes a good point, it’s always fun to blow a day on a good road trip and who doesn’t like to eat.
