I wonder if at some point either they got behind in production or someone wasn't doing the job properly, or even maybe equipment failure? So they just bagged it right from the processing plant still wet to keep up with demand?
The previous coal load I was burning, still Blaschak, but bagged at least a season earlier, was only slightly damp in the bags.
Shoot, even the OUTSIDE of the bags was all slimy and nasty with coal smudge. I couldn't carry them without getting black. The previous load was clean as a whistle on the outside.
I'm not trying to argue your point, JC. I can only say with the facts that I observed - my bags were taken from the factory Blaschak pallet, I cut the shrinkwrap myself. They were soaking wet - all of them - inside.
I would think that my wet coal (and others who've commented the same) is an anomaly rather than the norm. If Blaschak was selling coal that dripped black glop all over people's homes trying to load their stoves, they would not be as popular and widespread as a seller of quality coal.
