Well I don't know how it was before because I never had any but I picked up 5300 LBS in September and added on top of the coal that was in the bin, I did however keep 400 LBS to try and all I will say is It's up there with the best I have ever burned(deep mined Harmony, and Coal Contractors Mammoth) so I will add them to my top picks :up: . I burn nut in a hand fired though and not a stoker. :)

I've been burning direnzo coal either there rice or buck since harmony closed down. There coal is consistently good with regards to sizing heat output and being clean. This years coal is a tan ash like usual. It has a little more ash than the old harmony coal which is no big deal for me but it burns just as hot. The rice was 180 a ton which is a little more than some other places in the area but you get what you pay for. I'm very satisfied.

I'm very pleased with the quality of direnzo coal but has anyone else had issues with the amount of water you get with your coal. I have about 60 buckets I fill with rice coal after I pick it up in my truck when I get home and several times now there is so much water that accumulates in the bottom of the bucket that it has extinguished the fire on my reading stove after I dump it in the hopper. I like the fact the coal is clean but the water is excessive lately in my opinion.

Drill a hole in the bottom of your coal buckets. They make an allowance for water weight when calculating your bill.

I've burned through a ton and a half of rice and my buddy is burning there nut coal. I've been very pleased the past few years with there coal but this year it's not as good in my opinion and my friend says the same thing. It seems to have a lot more slate in it this year. I'm guessing they have a new source for there coal. Does anyone have any recommendations as to where to get good coal. I'm im schuylkill co north of pottsville.

I picked up a load last week. It's a red ash coal at this time. Burns hotter than last year's stock of white ash. But as you know the red ash coal comes with more klinkers and heavier ash pans.

I'm using DiRenzo nut this year. I last used their coal two years ago. It is a blend as would be expected. Red ash, on the higher end of the ash scale. Some clinkering. Makes for a heavy ash pan. I am impressed with the heat output at moderate air openings. Pretty easy recovery after shake downs. I'm OK with it in my hand fired. The load I got this year came as range, with a little more pea in it than I would prefer. I have no idea where they source their coals, but it reminds me of coal I have seen and used from some of the seams of the western Southern field.

My delivery guy says they had little coal on site when I got it late Oct. Likely just heavy sales time of the year. It is some of the cleanest coal I have ever used. Even cleaner than the load I got two years ago. I see zero to a tablespoon of fines at the bottom of a 5 gal. pail.
