I tried using M J Gaydos this year and the coal seems to burn hotter than did Hendricks. Mike from Gaydos said he gets coal from east Tamaqua and it's white ash (not sure what Hendricks is). So far this year I am happy but from the previous posts I will have to try Lutz next.


Go figure.

I had all kinds of problems with Hendricks coal last year, clinkers the size of bricks. This years coal is burning great, just like the first year.

There is a coal yard South of Mt. Carmel on Rt. 61 used to be called Harmony...good coal. There is "Mammoth Products" on Rt 901 outside Primrose...both are $175.00 per ton. There is a post on here that a guy will haul 10 ton of coal anywhere in the North East....you might contact him and see what he'd charge to haul 10 ton from one of those breakers.

I get my coal from Lutz's in Skippack Township also.
Burns nice with a nice flowing white ash, it does clink some, but not bad as long as you don't over fire.
My biggest gripe with them is the Nut coal as delivered has lots of fines and small pieces. I asked them and the response is you get what you get...
next time I'm up in the coal region, want to fill my pickup with stove coal to mix in. I got a low chimney and need a more open fire bed...

Has anyone used Delphi Supply for rice coal. I just learned they sold coal and it's $25 cheaper per ton than what I paid. Wondering the quality. Thanks.

yes they do deliver, depending on the mileage. If its too far, we can set you up with high-lifts that could be interested.
