I bought three tons so of nut (bulk) from a Bullville dealer and that is absolute complete cr ap. The other two "dealers" in the area, one is a failed hot tub sales person who is diversifying and the other is a wood stove seller who knows nothing about coal and could care less. I pickup 1.5 tons of nut at a time in my dually at Cornwall coal and that stuff is OK. My big loads are TT bulk loads of rice that come straight from Gods country (NEPA). Cornwall coal loads (Jeddo although they deny it but it's Hazleton area coal anyway) are OK and my latest attempt was Gale mining and that stuff is good too. It's lean pickings out here. Yes, I have the Pioneers big brother the Pocono (and others) and there is some adjustments to the inlet air that may help but at high burn rates there is a little unburned coal in the ash. However, bad coal is bad coal LOL.
Finally someone local who knows what I'm dealing with around here. The the guy in bullvile
Said he loaded me with a ton and a half but when I got the rice in the spackle buckets and weight each of them it came out to be 1800lbs. I called him out on it but didn't get anywhere. Also the coal was the worst I have ever burned
