Hey guys,
I am in Lancaster, PA and looking for bit coal that I can burn in my fire place. Have a cousin in Westminster, MD and he is looking for the same. We don't need that much at first (just want to try it) so where is the closest place I can go to pick some of this up in pieces that are large enough that I can burn in an open fire?

Thanks,
Glenn

Ideally you'd try to get some kentucky coal (low coke button), it's a "free-burning" coal that will burn very well in open fireplaces. Also you want the largest size possible. Maryland coal, while good quality, does not have desireable features for home-heating or open fires. Look for the closest location that carries large sizes of western PA bituminous coal (or kentucky, but that's unlikely in PA). More than likely, you'll have to drive to western PA to find any and at the best prices too; shipping is expensive.

that's a good price! Is that for nut or run-of-mine? how good is their coal? do you know how it burns; any clinkers, or does the coal "melt" and "bridge" badly?

yes it does, I have had it crumble in as little as a week or two, faster when it freezes and thaws several times. Doesn't last that long with the stoker

they sell lump coal, i'm not sure if it's kentucky or ohio lump. If you try it you'll know because a good kentucky lump will have light pink to white ash and will not "melt" or bridge in the firebox - it's a free-burning coal. Some southern ohio coal can be very good too, but usually has a higher tendency to clinker - this can be delt with by filling the firebox more full and slowing down the underfire air with the firebox draft control.

Hi I guess its still the same seam. I am burning about a wheelbarrow full a day. But as yet I am pulling unheated air from the garage to stove then into the house and have not ducted into house ducts. Blows in to basement then I have small fan to blowing up stairwell. So I really could do better but time and cash are sorely lacking .
