Just thought I'd post some photos of what you can expect to find down by the grates after burning really bad strip coal.
That’s pretty wild looking stuff, I've never seen *censored* like that in my ashes ( Blaschak
) it's hard to tell what something like that comes from but an impurity is an impurity and unfortunately the trucks that haul the coal have a habit of backhauling flyash from Co- Gen Plants that burn waste so I guess the melted rock could get mixed after the cleaning process performed by the breaker on occasion, I guess all coal has some no matter how it is removed from the ground .
That is why when shopping for coal I try to look more at how it is Cleaned And Prepared
rather than how it was dug .
If you ever get the chance to watch the raw coal coming in to a breaker it is not coal as we know it for the most part it looks like gobs of black dirt with huge rocks in it.
I am also fortunate that my coal isn't handled 4 or 5 times till it gets to my bin between trucking, scooping, bagging, and storing the coal has a lot of time to gather junk .
I’ll be posting more soon about my experience with Reading Coal, next weekend I'm picking up a half Ton or so for a test burn .
