Do you have any advise? I ordered a Keystoker 75K Baywindow. Delivery is 8 weeks. I need to lay in a supply of coal and prepare the chosen spot in the house for the stove. What do I need to know?

Read a few threads on coal quality b4 you buy your coal. Bad coal will ruin your winter! (get good stuff...There is a huge difference!)

We just heard today that Keystoker isn't taking any more orders this year. True or False?

It sounds like I made a wise choice to order when I did. I hope there are no problems or delays with the order due to the high order volume. I didn't get any feedback that orders were being closed out, but if they are I was lucky.

Now about coal. I am looking to go with Blaschak rice in 40lbs bags. I was thinking of ordering 6-10 tons to lock in the payback on the stove. How is the quality of Blascak? Is there a better product in 40 lbs bags or similar? I won't be able to dump a pile in the back yard, the boss wouldn't like that.

My stove did come from the factory. I think I heard that they were going to start concentrating on the boilers..

I burned a few bags of Blaschak in my former Magnum last year. Burned nice.

Blaschak is excellent coal. Stay away from Reading Coal.
