UAE dosn't sell stove size coal

What you are saying just blows the whole website away from what has been the norm for the past 4-5 years. Let's put it this way, why don't you come up with test results that prove me wrong. The coal suppliers you keep championing aren't without their following but when it comes right down to it, everyone says the coal burns like this mine or that mine. As far as old timers,,,,, the last EFM 700 I removed was from a 96 year old guy from Leighighton, He said that the coal he had just bought was some of the best he had burned. The guy had trucked it 70 miles from Hazleton. Seemed to think it was Jeddo. He also said that the local coal wasn't that good but was all that was available. He was sorta funny. He said "10 coffee cans a day of coal and 1 coffee can a day of ash." For your particular region, white ash may be a better product than the local red ash. Hasn't been that way for me. I will still buy the TT load of Harmony any day over the TT of Lehigh

I've used some Centralia stove coal (last season) that was excellent. White ash, low dust and way less ash than this year's Blas. I'd like to get a TT load of UAE or Superior in the future if I can get stove sized.
