Hope all you guys are having a nice summer, I for one can not wait until this hot soup like weather is long gone! That said I am getting things ready for heating season and wondered if anyone out there has burned fruit pits in there EFM or any other stoker? A coal place near me sells them (kiln dried) for $149.00 a ton and I was thinking of going that rout if they would work. BTU out put is around 9.5K a pound which of course is less then coal but ash content is around 1 % or less.

Stoker Coal Boiler: EFM 520 Highboy, and EFM 520 round door
Hand Fed Coal Stove: Coalbrookdale Darby, Harman Mark III, Stratford SC100, Vermont Castings DutchWest 288 (With Coal Insert), Coalbrookdale Severn, Hitzer 354 Custom, FrancoBelge La Normandie, DS Machine Anthramax
Coal Size/Type: Rice, Pea, Nut, and Stove
Other Heating: Vermont Castings Defiant 1975 FlexBurn, Fisher Grandpa Bear, Vermont Castings DutchWest 224, Vermont Castings Defiant 1945
