I mostly run wood, but I ran out and unless it's deadwood that I cut/split/stacked out of the rain for the whole summer, it's to wet to burn (unless I clean my chimney every week) I had a hell of a time burning coal until I found this forum. Now it's been running for 1 week straight!
Anyway, local dealer has coal from Haggan that I been buying for $7.50 per 50 lb bag, and I am burning 1 bag per day. Now that the cold snap is over I am going to switch back to the heat pump tomorrow. (he only has Nut, everyone here says Stove is what I want for my Jenson 24)
Anyway, Local guy wants $230.00 ton for Nut. (Honeybrook). A little further away (New Holland) I can get nut for $190 ton for something called majeto. Nobody down here seems to have stove coal.
I am looking to buy 1 or 2 tons , and I got a dump trailer. Since I live 1 hour south of "where coal comes from" I would be willing to drive to pick it up (as long as I don't need to drive back a long snow covered dirt road since I only got a 2wd 3500 truck).
Any of you guys got a place to suggest? I am 1 hour south of Cabelas, and we make as many trips up that way just so we can stop at the restaurant named smokey bones in Reading
Since I don't have a bin, I might wait until spring to build it, Is coal cheaper in the summer?
