I do however want to start sifting my coal to get the fines out of it. I burn Kimmels and it has a lot fines in it.
I set up a whole system for screening when I was burning Reading.
For every ten bags I sifted, I ended up with 40-50 lbs. of fines and other junk.
Switched to Blaschak for $10.00 more a ton. What a difference!!!
If you figure in your time and what you throw away from each ton, It's not worth it.
I hear Kimmels is about the same as Reading as far as quality goes. I'd switch brands if it's available.
