It's definitely burning hot and with the hand fired, the huge chunks aren't a major issue but I never had that with Blaschak before. For example, my last 4 bags, 3 have been more like pea and then the other was basically stove sized (I ended up dropping it a few times on my cement pad to break it up a bit.
Been getting a good number of unburnt slate pieces in my tray too which has been annoying.
I've never ever had issues with Blaschak before so it's really throwing me off. I will say this, my stove has been going round the clock since before Christmas and its still a nice steady heat and I've gotten some really long burns out of this batch at least even with those issues.
Just a bit of a surprise though. I had a couple of softball size chunks in that last bag which were funny to see.
