I burned Reading rice in my EFM & liked it better than the Blashak with lots of fines & dust,I also like Reading better than the Superior that i burned with lots of fines. I have now burned between 20-30 tons of Gale (large sized rice) & like it lots better than any of the others i used. I also burned Reading nut in my hand fed stove & liked it better than Blashak which had LOTS of fines & dust. This season i am burning Gale nut & like it far better than the Reading nut. I still have some Reading left over & have done comparison burns of it & Gale, I like the results from the Gale ,much better sizing,cleaner,burns hotter with less air & has a much prettier blue flame that just won't stop.
I guess that leaves me with mixed feelings on Reading coal,but i have gotten worse coal too.
