how much a bag are you paying for coal ???? there is a place in Carbondale that has Blaschak Coal for 6.50 a 40 lb bag

At Kresge we paid $9 for a 70 lb. bag of Jeddo, which I think is a good price, but they are low, so he let us have 4 bags. People's charges $7 for a 40 lb. a bag for whatever it is they're getting now. Ace Hardware in Mt. Pocono charges $6.99 for what I believe is a 40 lb. bag of Blaschak, but they were out of rice too.
Thanks for the info, will keep it in mind. As of now, People's is expecting to have coal to deliver to us on Wednesday. Of course, since we're not happy with People's coal this year, that's a good and a bad thing. If they can't make a delivery, though, we'll need some places to check for bagged. Worse comes to worse, we may just finish the season with......
since we have a full 500 gal. tank just sitting there. There's no way we'll need all that for the BBQ!
And next season, we plan to have another coal bin set up so that we can buy and store 5-7 tons, either one delivery or a trip to UAE with neighbors, no worries... and we'll have leftover.
