I spoke to the folks at Blaschak Coal today. They said that it is normal to have some small what seem to be unburnt pieces. The gentleman that I spoke with was VERY informative and spent a bit of time on the phone with me. Wasn't rushed at all. In fact Blaschak Rice Coal is actually more or less a blend of Rice and Buckwheat.
I get little black pieces in my ash also. You'd think they were coal, but they really don't have the same consistency. If it idles alot, I DO get a few pieces of partially burt coal that come from the very sides of the grate area, but it's not much. Having the combustion air blower running 100% of the time helps that as there always is a hot fire going, just a small one.
