So I must admit I under estimated what I was going to burn this winter. ( You see I have a cold start boiler and was basing my coal usage on its' oil usage ). So anyway ordered more and it was delivered today, Centralia is the brand. I hadn't heard of them before, of course there is alot I haven't heard of.... but anyway, what is everyones thoughts on these guys. Dealer said they were a premium coal and actually charge more for it.

They are a coal broker, look them up online: http://www.centraliacoal.com/

They sell a lot of coal and I've heard they are good to deal with. Let us know how you like their product.

This will be my second winter burning coal in my Keystoker A-80 forced air furnace. I burned Reading last year, and this year have been using Blaschak. I really haven't seen any difference at all between the two--both seem to do the job, same amount of ash, and basically the same consumption. I may go back to Reading next year, as it's cheaper.

Have used both and READING is the bottom of the barrel IMHO.
