Finished my coal bin this past weekend, and took delivery of my first load of bulk coal. I feel like a rich person, atm.
I've been running bagged from Hendricks in Hilltown, PA (Middle Bucks County dealer) which has always been dry and in good bags. The coal comes from the South Tamqua coal pocket, I believe, and it's been burning well for me since I've been running the boiler. Of course, I wouldn't know the difference at this point, since it's all I've burned so far, but the house is warm and the water is hot so I'm a happy camper.
If you're in this area, I recommend Hendricks. They've been in business since the 40's, and father and sons are still running the show and are very good people.
It's going to be a warm winter.
