Last Year's Bagged Blaschek

PostBy: NosmoKng On: Wed Aug 24, 2011 6:11 pm

Someone wants to sell me a pallet of last year's nut. My stove likes pea, but I'm wanting to help them out. A coal dealer told me that old coal aboe ground will produce more ash. True?

That is completely false. The coal will burn just fine.

Sorry I haven't been around for a while. Summer and all. Looking forward to a good burn this winter.

Be aware that the bags will degrade over time. I'd handle them with care until I see what condition they are in. Lisa

It is already 300 million years old. What's another year, more or less? :lol:

If the bags were in the sun a long time, they may be very brittle. Something to think about when you go to move them. I hate picking up the pieces. :)

How on earth does a coal dealer think the ash content can change by being exposed to the atmosphere ? Yes the outside of the coal can change by being exposed to the elements but how can the core just all of a sudden change ? I am not a geologist but if I am wrong I know some really experienced folks at the the university to ask. Let me know.

It's amazing some of the misinformation that gets spewed forth to new coal burners. :roll:

Same holds true for those who know nothing about cars. Buyer beware!

And the media laughs at Glen Beck for wanting to bring morality back to American society .... :roll: It would be soooo terrible to have honest business owners out there! :o

I'm a Blaschak dealer (FWIW here) and there is nothing wrong with last years coal. Like others have said, it's a few million years old...another year or two isn't going to hurt it. The mention of the bags deteriorating can happen, so handle with care until you see how it's been stored. Good luck!
