Ice Coal.

PostBy: EarthWindandFire On: Fri Jul 27, 2012 9:58 pm

What is ice coal?

Someone near me is offering free bags of ice coal. But, I have no idea what that means. Does "ice" refer to the size of the coal?

Thanks for any help!

Maybe they inadvertently left out an "r"?

Huh, I never thought about that! ;)

I was picturing coal the size of ice cubes which we refer to as "stove" coal.

Stove is about the size of baseball, ice cube size would be pea.

Pea coal is the size of a quarter or a little smaller. 13/16 X 9/16
