He says it comes from the Tomacqua beds, which is generally quite good coal from what I hear on this site.
I have met him once before, and he told me the same thing...that he picks up the coal from South Tamaqua Coal Pockets.

Ever bag of coal I have ever purchased has been wet, so I don't think that is unique to Kimmel's. I did notice that you have to be careful with the air when burning their nut coal. The load I had burned very hot, and had a lot of iron in the ash...if you got carried away with the air trying to "rev up" the fire, it would create clinkers.
