Isn't that only 35 lbs of coal? What do you do have a dozen of them?
How bad is the coal when bagged? Does anyone sell the oiled bagged coal in the CT RI area and delivers?
No, I have 9 of them to be exact . I can get a week unless Its real cold out and then Its only 5 or 6 days,I am setting up a outdoor bin and will oil it when I fill it so I can get some floor space back in the garage in the winter.Keepaeyeonit
