I am doing something wrong then, mine is not hopper fed, maybe I shouldnt ignite the whole bed before I go to bed and cover the top with new coal, I am just afraid of overfiring it while sleeping. I do not have a way to set my draft regulator and when it gets down to like 14 degrees it pulls a harder draft and wants to overheat even on a low setting. I need to figure out how to set the draft AND how to burn coal overnight.

Can you buy a mix of stove coal and nut coal from a breaker as long as the breaker sells stove coal.

Sure could. All you do is get half of one size and half the other loaded onto your truck. By the time you get it to your stove it will pretty well mixed.

Fairclough Fuel in Hampton (Sussex cty) is now selling Reading in bags. This was where I bought coal when I first installed the Harman, that would be the coal that wouldn't burn. They are selling Reading for $8.00 per bag. :shock:

Hudson coal.
I have been burning the buck I bought from Hudson last week. Burns very good in my Reading utilty stove. Good heat and not much of a difference between the ash compared to the Blaschaks. The best part is I can pick up the Hudson for 150 a ton vs Blaschak 210. Just have to drive 10 more miles to get it. Think I will be buying more Huson .

I just went down and planned on going to UAE but they ran out. So I decided to get coal from Lenig since I heard the name on here. Is this coal OK?

I went to Calvin V Lenig off 225, 140 a Ton. There was a guy with white hair running the loader. Was that Mr. Lenig himself? It was almost 60 up here today so I probably won't be lighting the stove until it gets cold again.
