Anyone have experience burning this new blend from SA? I know it's too early for 98% of us, but any additional feedback from you DHW guys would be welcome. I would like to stock up for the winter in a few weeks.

I have bought from the old Hudson in the past and loved the sizing and washed product, but did not care for the ash content. I would drive an extra 1:15 to buy from the old UAE instead. As reference, I would empty my ash pan once a day after two shake downs with UAE, with the old Hudson, about 3 full pans a day!

That's what I do with the Blaschak nut (bulk) I burn--empty ash once a day after 2 shake downs

We dropped the gravity down to 1.50 from Hudsons old gravity 1.65, running nothing but premium stripping coal from Glen Lyon. Come down and try a bucket.

Glad the sizing is the same. I found the nut to be on the large size, which my stove likes. I have bought nut at other breakers that was almost 50% pea in my opinion.

Chances are if I drive over, I'm going to try a single axle worth lol.

If there is one thing that was always consistent with Hudson it was the sizing. You won't find undersized pieces, try comparing their rice to somewhere else and you'll find a lot of barley in the other product.

Are you talking about heavy media process? As in a lower specific gravity for the liquid media? Or is this a centrifugal force type of "gravity" that has been reduced? Anyway, it sounds like a very interesting process, I'm going to have to go on a breaker tour some day. 8-)
Thanks for helping out!
