Lightning, it is bituminous coal, and it cost a staggering 269 euro per ton.
But the anthracite costs 620 euro per ton here in Holland, unloaded on the boardwalk.

I guess I have to go all the way to, "Stoves and Stuff in Stroudsburg and pay the premium for a 5" to 6" adapter and some elbows.


Check out lowes before stoves and stuff. That's where I got black stove pipe 8"

Getting ready by ordering another 7 maybe 8 tons coming this week, it'll go along with the already 6 tons I have left from last year, you might say I'm a coal hoarder.

Picked up ton 2 today. Love this new truck, can't even tell there's a ton sitting in the bed. The old Dakota got squirrelly with 3/4 in the bed.

@ Peter: Have you tried "Eierbrikett" egg-sized briquettes made of anthracite fines? They are "only" €400/1000kgs... I´ll give them a try this season. supposed benefit: they are said not to form clinkers but turn to fine ashes once they´re consumed. Will have to see about burn times- new winter, new try :!:
