Why would you ever want to buy soft coal? It's by far more dirty and gassy than anthracite.

Because not all of us live in Northeast PA , why pay three times more for the same heat. When burned right Bit coal can be just as clean as that hard stuff!

Much less $$, higher btu's, and less ash. In a stoker it's smoke-free. In a hand-fired stove it will produce visable smoke from the chimney, but it's no dirtier to handle or burn indoors than anthracite. I've had numerous long-time anthracite burners switch to bituminous after trying some- even for almost the same price! Why? as i mentioned, more heat, less ash, and most importantly to most people - if they're away and their boiler or stove goes out, when they return home late at night they don't have to sit around for a few hours and baby it; they can get a few pieces of scrap wood burning and load it up with bituminous, burn it hot for a few minuites and then fill the boiler/furnace and go to bed.

Went to Sampson's in Owensboro KY yesterday and picked up a ton of egg and a ton of ROM, both were $85/ton. He has plenty of stoker at $75/ton. Mentioned he had 1 truck in Peoria Illinois delivering yesterday and 2 trucks in Indiana as well, all delivering stoker. Delivery generally adds $25/ton within a reasonable distance. He said this year it's from Henderson and #9 mines, same as last year.
