Premium vrs Blaschak

PostBy: coalloser On: Thu Jan 22, 2009 12:28 pm

Has anyone burned/tried both of these? I know that there are much better ones based in the Tamaqua area but they do not deliver to my neck of the woods and I do not have the ability to get it myself. All the dealers in my area seem to deliver Premium. The only other option I have is to continue to burn Blaschak but I do not get very long burns but do seem to get a ton of ash. Just curious if Premium would be any better and what experiences you have had with it

You would be better off with South Tamaqa coal pockets or Tuscarora coal co. Then Premium Fine coal co. They use alot of Refuse coal mixed in with Surface mine coal. not the best in Quality . South Tamaqua coal pockets in right in front of
them if your looking from Route 309 .Look on the First link Under Schuylkill County you will see Premium Fine coal on the Refuse coal list . Ask you Dealer or Delivery Guy to Try one of the other's. If he Won't then Try looking for another Delivery Guy or call one of these Places and ask them if the have a Dealer or Delivery Guy in your area . Or Just Stick with Blaschak

I usually burn South Tamaqua in my Harman insert hand fed. However this year I decided to try Blaschak nut coal. Big mistake (3.5 ton to be exact), burns with more ash, less heat, and needs more draft. I will be sticking with South Tamaqua! Anybody know if South Tamaqua is still getting raw coal from LCN?

I agree. The amount of ash on Blashack is very high. I can fill up a 55 gallon trash can in 5 days

Very true about the ash content, I didn't know the difference, Being a nubee to coal. I'm getting a ton of ash from Blaschak nut and I just poopped my second ton (this one is from Reading),much bigger and it seems better already.

Well if you like the coal so much why not buy direct from LC & N at there own coal breaker and cut out the middle man
They are only up the road few miles from Premium Fine coal co. & South Tamaqua coal Pockets .
Go to there own Greenwood breaker .
