Like I've posted.. have had excellent Coal rice from TSC for the last 3 seasons.. 1st season only thing wrong was the bags.. they cleared that up with nice plastic bags. Better then Blazchak ones. And no fines at all..amazing.. I thought it would bad or worse coal then Blazchak which I burnt for 10 seasons here. But it's better all around then Blazchak.. well see for the 2018 2019 season. On a side note I burn 7 ton a year.

Few years back use to buy a large ton, one complete pallet which was 2400 lbs. There were 60 bags to a pallet, but no more .

Yes, $60 less. my Blaschak was 310/ton last year. Not sure what it will be this year but it usually goes up $5 a year. I did burn a bag of my load of TSC and it was about like last year. I could use propane at the same cost or a little less but its just not the same heat wise. I like having a warm spot in the house.
