New to Coal; Need to find a supplier

PostBy: clintsullivan On: Sat Nov 05, 2011 9:10 am

I recently purchased a Bakers Choice wood/coal cookstove and would like to try some coal to see how well I can alternate. I've talked to many folks who use wood most of the time then add some coal in the evening for a night time burn without getting up to add fuel. Before I purchase a large amount, I'd like to get a few bags of either stove or nut coal to give this a try. I'm in Berkeley Springs WV and so far have been unable to find a bagged coal dealer nearby. I had thought that the local woodstove dealers who also offer coal stoves might sell bagged coal, but no luck so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Congratulations on your new cookstove! (Our stoker should be arriving before the end of nest week. Can't wait.) Our stove dealer does sell bagged coal, but we found a better price at a local ice company of all places.

Try local ice companies, landscape material companies, lumber/saw shops, etc. (A couple of weeks ago, I spotted a swimming pool place selling pellets. I'll have to stop by and tell them coal is king! ;) )

Here's a link to yellowpages.com: http://www.yellowpages.com/berkeley-springs-wv/coal-suppliers?g=Berkeley+Springs%2C+WV&q=coal+suppliers I plugged in your area and did a search on 'coal suppliers'. Also, I believe I saw an ice co. selling coal in Martinsburg. I don't know if you would consider that too far away.

In any case, good luck. :verycool:

The Stop in Winchester sells baged coal. I do not know where they get it. They are located in the plaza close to Shoney's restrauant. I buy mine in bulk from Sherman breaker mile marker 112 on I-81. He delivered 15 ton to Winchester for 200/ ton.

Update on coal supplier in Berkeley Springs: I thought I had called the folks at Hunters Hardware and was told that they didn't have coal, maybe it was a miscommunication and they didn't have coal in stock at the time, but they do have bagged pea & nut coal in stock now. I was able to get a couple bags to try in my stove before I commit to buying a larger supply and making the drive to Everrett.
