Hi everyone, I burn mainly chestnut coal myself. However since I have an F-250 diesel and a dump trailer I haul rice coal for my dad and uncle every year! We have tried American Premium coal, both nut and rice. The nut coal was lousy and the rice coal was even worse according to my dad and uncle. The people working there were very friendly and gave us each a free hat but the coal was no good! To this day we joke about getting coal from there as we drive by. The most consistent coal we have bought for years is South Tamaqua coal pockets coal. Always clean and very consistent, however I have been told that they bought alot of their coal from LC&N and they no longer get it from there. My dad and uncle burn their rice coal every year because it is close to home and the easiest for my to get for them. I tried UAE last year and I was very satisfied with their coal, I will make the trip there this week for nut coal, as well as South Tamaqua for rice coal. I tried LC&N nut coal a few years ago and it too was lousy, I learned that they were processing alot of bank coal at that time? I do have a question on the red ash UAE coal for somebody that knows a little more about coal. I was told the red ash coal means it was near fire, any truth to this? I work with a few people who worked at various coal mines some for years, including a man that worked at LC&N. Back in the day that was the best coal you get. I am not an expert by any means, just a person who burns coal in a Harman insert to heat my house! For the record I have learned that coal varies from one trip to the next at any given mine. I have tried coal from UAE, LC&N, South Tamaqua, West Penn, American Premium, Jeddo Highland, Blaschak, and Tuscarora. It is kind of a hobby of mine to always try and find "Better" coal, good luck!
