[/b] hey everyone,
i have been burning blaschak for 2 yrs now,no problems except the price,my dealer just went up to 370$ per 2400lbs.
i found a dealer about 20 miles away that sells kimmels for 276 per ton. i could save some money,but i was wondering if anyone has burned both and what the results were? i am concerned with heat output and ash content and consistancy. any input would be helpful,thx!
:shock:

bugize, I had been having trouble burning the rice bulk (Reading?) that my local supplier had. the carpet was clogging, not much heat, and alot of ash. I then tried a few bags of Kimmels from the local Agway Store. Immediate rise in heat output and much less ash. I have since been burning the kimmels and bagged Blascak i get from my supplier and i don't see any difference. My brother burns Kimmelsnut exclusively in his Mark II and is very happy with it. From what i read on this site Kimmels just bags the coal and doesn't their own breakers, which would make me wonder about the consistency. I would try a fews bags and go from there . Good luck.

I recently bought a ton of nut coal after trying 2 bags for a couple of days. I am going back to Blashack as this new stuff has clinkers & jams my stove. If you want to try something new, burn it for a week b4 you by bulk.

Look under Dauphin County on the link below Meadowbrook Coal co is where kimmel's Coal comes from Very inconsistent in Quality It is Mostly Refuse Coal However They are Going to Reopen a Old Deep mine if They did not already So the Quality Should improve Hopefully
