I got some stuff from the landscape place up here that burns great but smokes so bad the neighbors are throwing fits. Coal I burned in the past wasn't like that.
I have been trying to come up with a way to be able to haul more than a ton of coal from down there up to me, but to date, no solutions.
When a new load is fired the first time I get a gray/black plume during most of the cycle. After that it subsides considerably, by the 3rd cycle it resembles an all wood load. My closest neighbors are about1/4 mile away. Lots of boilers in a 5 mile radius of me. If smoke is a problem; load coal late at night, most won’t see it so it's doesn’t exist. If your neighbors are right on top of you the wood load only could draw complaints. How long have you been burning?
