It is getting toward the end of my coal burning season, even though it is only 20 degrees out in mid afternoon, and did get down to -6 last night, my 28th night below zero this year. I am going to give a review of the coal I got from Lehigh anthracite this year. I have been burning rice coal in an Alaska Channing III for 6 years now. I always bought coal around my area in North Central NY each year, but decided to buy a Tri-axle load of 22 tons from a breaker in PA this past fall to save some money. After doing research mostly through this web site, I decided to go with Lehigh. I usually burn coal from about Nov. 10, until late March, when I usually head to Florida for a couple weeks. Most years I burn between 3.5 & 4 tons of coal. This year I will burn about 3.7 tons of the Lehigh coal, but it has been much colder this year then the last few. I get less ash this year then I have had with my coal from past years. I think the Coal does burn hotter. I am very happy with my purchase of coal from Lehigh, and when I need more in about 5 years, I will go back to them. Only negative was I got a few large pieces mixed in with the rice coal. I caught most of them before I poured the Coal in my hopper, but missed one of them once, and it got caught in my auger, and my stove went out overnight. Overall, very happy with the Lehigh coal.
