I doubt it. With that much inert material in the coal, there is simply less room for carbon. He also mentioned reducing the feed rate on the stoker once he switched to the different coal.

I'm guessing he's going to use less coal with the new stuff. Too bad he has to use all the old stuff for the rest of the winter :(

Thanks!
This mornings temp. was 15 degrees. The real challenge is coming this Friday when below zero temps. on top of wind chills are predicted. My house sits on top of a hill with no wind break from the north west. The Jeddo anthracite is going to get a workout!

Looks like Jeddo is burning excellent for you... I back to full ash tub in 12 hours, missing the good coal already.
