I have now burned over 27 tons of the Gale rice out of a total of 36.5 tons purchased & about 1.5 ? tons of Gale nut out of 4800# purchased. I started with their standard rice with the first load & have gone to their large rice with all the loads since. Less air is needed for both my EFM520 & my Crane 404 handfed to get the same burn.
I am very happy with both sizes of Gale coal & i am very glad i made a way for the nut coal to happen for this heating season.I have really enjoyed watching the nearly continuous pretty blue flames in my handfed stove & the ease of keeping the fire going at the level i want.
I was amazed when i cleaned the fly ash out of the EFM as to how little ash there was to be cleaned out.
Forum member,fifthg is the owner of Gale & is very nice to deal with,i did not beg or plead for any special pricing but he has been selling coal to me for $140/ton. So far we pick up around 9 tons each time & since i am burning around 20-22 tons per yr. he knows there will be more loads to send my way.
As i told him on the phone,if he keeps using that same dye on the nut coal
,i will be buying more so i can keep watching those pretty blue flames.
Ain't no way that those black rocks can burn with such pretty blue flames without some additive
