It's been claimed on here numerous times that the 'white ash' is better than the 'red ash'. Red ash coal will produce clinkers when burned hotter. Clinkers are no fun, but if you have a stove that doesn't have grates made to break them up, it can turn a person off of coal very quickly.keegs wrote:Never burned coal before so I need to get a baseline of what's good and bad quality coal.

There is a 'learning curve' to burning coal. Once you've figured it out, you will be a warm, happy coal burner.

I assume my TS store was selling coal left over from last year until they used it all up. I had to go to a different store to get nut last week as the one closest had no nut. Kimmel's has burned well in my Penn ( Chubby knock off ) stove. TS has the best price in my area.

It does have some fines but it's not that much. I've heard that this years Stockton has the least fines....
