Bosler usually stocked 2 kinds of nut, glossy clean coal was sherman, forget the name of the other but was very dull and dirty, loved how the sherman burned. The other was supposed to burn hotter and longer but I personaly didnt like it as much. If you call before you go he will let you know what kinds he has.
