Does anyone offer coal in bags that keep it dry?

If they bagged it dry without washing, everybody would bitch about dust. Hard to make everybody happy. Only solution is to go to bulk or go through the drudgery of slitting & hoping :) PS--NO, I don't believe there is such a critter.

Rice size when wet holds the most water...as size gets bigger water is less the problem...all due to *capillary action*...look it up for better understanding.

hummmm, where's that *NEVER WET*???

Kind of defeats the "convenience " of buying bagged coal. If I wanted to move the coal more than from the pallet to the hopper, I'd go back to bulk. I bought bags because I was tired of moving the coal more than once.

You have a point. For me the convenience of bagged coal is easy unloading with a skidsteer and easy transportation to three different houses. Do whatever works for you.

If I had an EFM ( a little boiler envy here ) it wouldn't be an issue. Drill some holes in the bottom of the barrel and let gravity do it job. Us hopper fed types don't have that luxury. Perhaps I'll build a raised platform with grates and put a condensate pump in the tub. Then I can put the bags on and poke holes in the bags as they await their fate in the boiler. I've burned baged before it was damp, but this years bags are soaked! At least a pint perhaps a quart per bag.

Good point. When wet, I just fill up buckets (I have extra buckets) for the next day and use them, wet, dry, I don't care.

They dry out pretty quick in the stove ! Sizzle sizzle, dry.

I may have posted this before. But, if you only let your stove hopper drop a bag or two at a time, you can just add coal more often and by the time the new coal gets down to the stoker, it has time to dry. My bagged Blashcak is always damp, but the wetness never gives me any trouble once the coal hits my stoker.

Seriously, last year was the 1st time I ever had fire go out because of excess water (Blashak bagged). I learned to prevent this but since the rest has been sitting and drying out all summer I should see no issues.

Whats the going rate these days for you guys? I'm talking single bags... My local hardware store has Blaschak for $8.89/bag which seems high. Then again I'm from MA where everything costs more! This is all new to me so...

Thank you!

$6 to $6.5 is more like a popular price. Try some of the wood pellet dealers who often sell coal. I paid $285 per ton Blaschak bagged in CT. Now $295.

I buy mine a pallet at time from a guy in NH. Price per 40# bag works out to $6.00 per bag (Baschak). Try Riverside Coal out of Boston. When I was looking to get 6 tons I think he said $285.00 plus $45.00 flat delivery. Still saving for the 6 tons. His number is 781-254-2773. Good luck Matt.

I feel like we are getting raped here on Long Island. $385 a ton bagged Blaschak. Found kimmels for $354 a ton, about the best in this area. Bulk is about $100 cheaper a ton, but no bin...:(
