I have talked to several people that burned their coal last winter; they were happy with it. If you have a local dealer with Stockton coal, go ahead and get some then let us know how it works for you.

I've burned a roughly 50/50 blend of Stockton and Blaschak Pea since my Stocktom supply arrived in November with no issues. Sorry, but I never tried burning the Stockton alone, so I'm not sure if there is anything of real value here to someone inquiring of Stockton.

The vendor who sold it to me said that he had received lots of complaints from his own customers about out-fires with it, and I was buying it at my own risk (at a discounted price to his Blaschak coal) if I chose to do so, being forewarned that it was considered by many (including the store that sold it to me, by relaying this information to me so openly, and repeating it several times) to be no good. To be fair, he also stated multiple times that he bought it from a distributor who told him it was Stockton, but that he had serious doubts in that regard and that he could not verify its true source since he himself did not place an order with Stockton, but merely with a coal dealer who told him it was Stockton.

All I can report is that by burning it as a blend, it all burns completely (except on very warm days), it heats the house and its hot water just fine, and it is reduced to ashes which to me do not seem excessive (or different from the Blaschak when burned solo), and I have had no out-fires in so doing. As to the warm days performance, the blend is also no different form pure Blaschak in this regard, leaving some partially burned coal in the ash pan.

I got a ton of Stockton coal(Mammoth)and I did not like the way it burned so I mixed it 50/50 with Blaschak and ran it the rest of this winter but I will never buy it again unless it's all I can get :cry: .Keepaeyeonit :)
