I am not an expert on coal, you guy's talk about quality. How is that determined
I have a Leisureline stove. is the ash different when it's burnered on the low setting,
rather then on high, is the ash color,texture, brittle, and size determine quality after burned :?

If the ash is 99% ash, with very little if any black, unburnt coal, then it is good coal.
This thread has photos of poorly burning coal.. Pictures of ash and quality

Tell him where in your basement you want it dumped and offer to give him $300 for it delivered. Free removal sounds like a bargain if they don't burn coal and want it out, I'd still drop off a ham and a case of beer or Pepsi to the dude for giving it to you. It's like scrap metal in my area, I offer to haul it away "free" if someone asks. Sitting scattered throughout broken down houses it's just trash cleanup and a heck of a lot of work. Once it's all sorted out, cleaned up, and at the scrap yard then it's money.
