M & S Coal Sales - 570-644-1469
Gypsy from PA, been buying from him for 15 yrs. Bulk only. Hit on some bad time, but seems to be back in business :) He's hit or miss on his schedule, and you don't know the breaker, but it's always good stuff.

Charlie Gutowski Coal Sales - 860-283-5640
Charlie is from Northfield, CT. Sells bagged or bulk from Blashek. Course he's 80, and I bought 2 yrs ago from him (when the bad times hit above). Found him finally on Craig's list. Nice guy, very responsible, always returns phone-email.

BTW, I hate bagged coal. As a 5' 2" widow, they're like handling a screaming toddler throwing themselves backwards. Just had me a shovel.

Hope this helps somebody :D

I just talked to the guy at M+S Coal. His dump truck holds 11 tons and he has dividers in the body so he can split loads easily meaning if you have a few neighbors that want to split a load it is doable. His coal is washed and from the marathon vein. White ash. He has been to central Connecticut and is willing to go further on a case by case basis. He is from Coal Township, PA. Although I haven't done business with him he sounds like a decent guy on the phone. I think that is where my next load will come from.

I made a mistake in my post and it was too late to edit it. The coal M+S sells is from the Mammoth Vein, not marathon. :oops:

Hi,
I'm a long time coal burner in Enfield. I've used Phelps and Sons for the past five years. One of their drivers lives a few streets down from me. You can also get bagged coal from Mitchell Fuel on Sullivan Ave. in South Windsor. He has plenty. I buy from him in the spring if I need extra to get me through an extra week or two.

Mike

Agway on State Street in North Haven has Kimmel's coal, nut and pea. They have a lot of nut bags that were giving up, not sure why but the bags were tearing open. They dropped them into clear plastic bags and selling them at 1/2 price @ $5 a bag, not a bad deal. Looks like he may have a ton or so. :)

I heard Household coal and Oil was selling Jeddo Coal. Is that correct? Has anyone burned it? My cousin burns nut and loves Jeddo coal but I burn rice. I would love to get some rice to try. I use Blaschak and have had good luck with it, but I think I could get better coal. I have never tried another brand so I have nothing to compare to. I think I get too much ash. Also, the Blaschak rice coal seems to be a lot larger then rice.

I burned Al's coal for 3+ years and have no complaints. He usually has 2-300 tons laying around so at least he has it. :)

I used all of the 2 tons I bought from Phelps and Sons around the 15th of March and bought ten bags more from Mitchell Fuel in South Windsor. The price is still $7.00 a bag. I bought ten bags and it appears that I will have to go back and get another week's worth in a few days.

The Blaschak coal is pretty good stuff but I still save $200 by buying the stuff in bulk.
