I live 15 minutes from Home Coal Sales (new name) and burn their rice coal all the time with no issues. It burns a bit hotter than Keystone Anthracite but not a whole lot. I live only a couple of minutes from Keystone Anthracite so unless I am driving right by Home Coal Sales I got to Keystone.
I buy it by the bucket from both places. Both will load you with a skid steer if your loading a truck. Both have a good supply of rice. Keystone Anthracite is $185 a ton bulk, Home Coal Sales is $170 a ton bulk. If you are buying bulk, Home Coal Sales at $170 ton is the way to go.
