Since everyone burns their coal differently, some people have found it perfect for their furnaces and some have found it better mixing it with Hudson or Blashchak or Superior or Sherman, ect or ect. ( just trying to plug some of our buyers). But with the price we offer it is a great product! You might have to tinker, but it's a great product which at the end of the day, whatever way you use our coal, you will save $$$$$$.

John no problem about not being there. You hit the nail on the head. It is like most different coal sources I have tried over the years. They burn best when mixed with another source. The coal I have been burning is from 3 different vanes and it burns really well. The Newport coal clinker'd to about baseball to softball size by itself in my boiler. So I tried mixing it 50/50 with my other coal and that problem totally went away. Now the Newport coal I picked up was basically rice sized. I saw what I call pea, nut and barley however I didn't see any true buckwheat coal. The slightly larger size of the buckwheat would help with the clinkering problem in my boiler, as even UAE will clinker some if I don't atleast mix their rice with buck. Overall it seems to put off a good amout of heat and if you don't mind tinkering with it, it is a very good value. I also think if you mix it with a coal with a higher ash fusion temp. that will also eliminate the clinkering problem. As for the dust that can be controlled by oiling it as it is put into the bin.

I havent burned this coal yet, however i did have a thought to share. If lack of ash is a problem try superior, the last time i burned them they had a high ash content and it was a red ash, or try blaschak if the sizing is to large, because there stuff seemed sized to small. Personally i'd like to try it, but i can't store more than 2 tons at a time. I'd be confident my hitzer 82 wouldnt have any problems.

Anyone out there have AHS/AA burn results with this coal? I'm considering a run to NEPA to pick up about 4 tons of pea for my S260.

I'm burning it right now in my AA130. It is getting mixed with the 6 ton of other coal i have in my bin. It's really hard to say anything but if you burn in the summer you know a AA will have unburnt coal in the ash, that's just how it is. I leave the anthrastat at 140 year round. It's going into the 40's a few nights here so maybe it will actually kick on besides the timer. It is oversized for pea. Like was said before, you may want to mix this with your usual supply although in a AA i can not see this causing any outfires by itself. There is some stone in the ash, not shale but stone. If you had a handfired this might cause problems getting jammed in the grates. I dump my ashes mostly in my driveway and the rain washes it away slowly, so if there is a lot of stone i will be able to tell.

Is this coal still available at $100/ton? Any new or updated reports of its burning characteristics and performance?

Went on a mini vacation this weekend.

I stopped at Newport Aggregate, the main reason for the trip. Impressive operation. It is a large stone quarry.

I picked up 900 lbs of nut, 200 lbs of pea and 2500 lbs of rice on 9/4. I got the nut for a friend who was willing to give his impressions of the coal quality. I got the rice to mix with buck I already have, but will test burn some straight in the keystoker K-6 before mixing. I will test burn the pea in the AA130 before using my normal coal. It won't be until cold weather before testing occurs and I have results.

Note, They were almost out of rice. I was lucky to get some. Call to check stock before going.

First impressions-

Nut was a little undersized. Looks more like a mix of nut and pea.

Pea looks like a mix of buck and pea.

Rice looked nicely sized.

There was much less dust than I expected. In fact, there was hardly any. The rains must have washed the dust to the bottom of the pile.

There is obvious dirt, stone, shale and bone in the mix. I expect more ash out of this coal. This is not a suprise. You are not going to get high grade coal at bargin basement prices.

I missed the opportunity to talk to John, so I don't know what his long term plans are.

That 'mini vaca' is a drive from your hometown, and thanks for the follow-up. There are no bargains anymore, so you get what you get, and hopefully can use it for the intended purchase. If nothing else, you can use it for hard fill.....expensive for fill, but still meets the goal. I know you had a nice ride, met some nice folks, enjoyed some great faire,..perhaps a local adult beverage or two or three, and learned more about our good friends in PA! :idea: :D 8-)
