Whoa that's cheap. I actually just bought a used wood stove because I didn't think I could afford to spend $300 a ton on anthracite. I'll have to re think this now
thanks for that info.

I'll just tell you this, the coal from Viper (Elkhart) has a lot of volitiles and likes to bridge. It takes some tampering with to get it right. I haven't even gotten it right yet, but I'm working on it. If you've got neighbors anywhere nearby, you're sure to peeve them off since this coal is quite smokey.

Do you have a number to contact the coal mine or will they load you when you show?

I was just wondering how your efforts panned out?
