warm now wrote:People I know who work at the mines or breakers(I live just outside Wilkes-Barre, Pa) have said that coal should have "bone" in it to burn well. I took this to mean the pieces that are somewhat dull looking rather than glossy. I see it in the coal I have (chestnut from Chervy) and have had no problems. No klinkers and fine ash in the pan. It's supposed to be deep mined and it sure burns nice, but I don't know for sure. Is this true about the "bone" or are they yanking my chain?
If you want to listen to the old timers that's what they will tell you.
