This will be my second winter burning coal. I have a Keystoker K-6 direct vent. Last winter I burned Lenig's rice and it worked fine. This year I have been calling for over a month to see if they have and they never have any. I understand the flood caused issues. Anyways, we are getting to the point where I want to light up the old machine and have no coal. A local guy has Blashak bulk for $213/ton and Lenigs is I believe $150/ton but with my travel and gas money, i probably will have $175/ton in the Lenigs. Lenigs is an hour and a half away and the local guy is 5 minutes.
Is there a difference in the coal? Is it worth waiting until Lenig's has and save 40 bucks a ton. What is everyones thoughts. Like I said I am very coal novice.
