Is there any advantage one size has over the other such as heat content or burn length , or price? 20 years ago I had a Surdiac which could only burn pea, so I had no choice.
Here are the standard Anthracite sizes With your 503 stick with Nut you will be able to control the heat and fire better
Pea don't throw off as much heat it my burn a little longer depending on your setup Stove coal will work to more heat less
burn time mix it with nut on them real cold nights put the nut in first then throw on the stove you will like the extra heat http://www.readinganthracite.com/mining_sizes.html
