OK, nothing meant to be personal. I'm glad scottscoaled posted what he did & this is in no way meant to degrade John, but I have learned over many years, oh OK, not that many Richard
, that if something is working well for me I usually end up the fool for thinking the grass is greener on the other side. I'm sure Johns coal would burn fine in my Hitzer--just the nature of the beast, but after 4 seasons of being totally satisfied w/ my current dealer, why would I change????? PRICE??? Yes, mine costs more then $150 or whatever a ton, plus, he's been here for those years. I could pay $400.00 a ton for the season & still be spending a third of what fuel oil/kero would cost me in this 200 yr old farm house.
