Coal dealers near CincinnatiOH

PostBy: Javier On: Tue Nov 02, 2010 11:00 pm

Hello everyone, first, thanks so much for all the info. This really is a great site. That being said, I could use some help. I am new to burning in general and am wanting to give coal a shot. I am having a really hard time finding any place near cincy to get ahold of anything though. I am wanting to burn nut size bit. and am willing to travel a distance to get it, but don't want to have to go so far that it wouldn't be cost effective to do over going the wood route. I have a 1500chevy so I can't haul a massive amount, but could move some shovel fulls verse having to get bags. Any info would be highly appreciated. Thanks again guys for all the knowledge.

Javier.

I was planning to burn bituminous, but have never tried either one. Just figured I would give a shot from what I have read here. I suppose I am open to either. Bksaun do you have a source for either? I checked out the reading locations, wouldn't be a bad drive. Anyone used reading coal, that would like to give opinion?

I have burned Reading with no problems, both Rice in my stoker and Nut and Stove size in my hand fed.

My source for Bituminous that I use in my fireplace coal grate comes out of Middlesboro, Ky, a long haul for you, call some of the mines in eastern ky and ask if they ship to coal yards in Northern Ky, also I will check when I have time in the next few days to see what I can find for you.

There are some members in Indiana and Ohio that may be aware of some and will surely weigh in when they see the post.

Looked through all those post. Wow, lots of info. Unfortunately there isn't anything closer than the reading dealer. Talked with him, could be an option, but he only sells bagged anth. at 255 a ton. Kinda wanted to go the soft coal route.

(859)353-2805 This guy is in eastern KY, i'm not sure how much the coal is, but they might truck it to cincinati.

If you're looking at the cost of buying wood vs. the cost of buying bituminous coal, even driving 200 miles would likely still make it significantly cheaper. Honestly, coal of any variety is nicer to burn than wood.

Thanks for all the info everyone. Research has uncovered a couple local sources.

Hammersville Coal and Feed - (937) 379-1888
$150 ton bulk picked up, east kentucky bit. apprx 1-2 in.

Cincinnati Bulk Terminals - (513) 621-4800
$180 ton bulk delivered. east kentucky bit screened to be between 2-4 in.

Have a couple tons coming this weekend from CBT. The extra 30 a ton seemed worth it, considering it is about an hour drive each way to pick up from the other guy, plus I could only get 1 at a time. Spent the extra 30 already at that point.
