Hello Everyone. Wanting to see how many of my fellow Kentucky people I can gather up on the forum. I have been burning coal for several years and have a couple of stoves of my own. I have my usual places to get my coal and all that. Would like to hear from others and see what you are using and where you get coal as well. You never know we may be able to help each other find places closer to our homes we didn't know about. With the high price of fuel every mile counts. I'm usually on-line everyday at some point everyday and have no problem helping anyone if I can.

I've been burning anthracite for a couple of years. I buy my coal from an Amish store outside of Cub Run but live in Hiseville.

I have been burning wood but would like to add a coal stove. There is an Amish place that sells both and I like the dealer--but it is 120 miles away, east of KY Lake. Is there nobody selling coal in the west end of KY--west of KY Lake? I have not found any even in Paducah, the biggest town in the area.

Have you tried going online and Googling Blaschack, Reading, Kimmels, etc.? Maybe give those companies a call and ask them where the closest dealers may be to your location. I know of a couple of places but hey are all central KY or north central KY.
Just a thought.

I think Blaschak is the one who gave me the location 120 miles away. Reading was farther.
