Thanks, I will ask. I do wish we had other choices here, but I'm just glad Tractor Supply has something to burn. I would like to try some bituminous in this stove (Buck Model 24) which they say is designed as a multi-coal stove, but there is not a supplier that is close by that will sell it to individuals, plus you don't save much more than the TSC considering the round trip drive. I do have a nephew that says he runs into some old coal bins while he is doing foundation repairs, so I have him on the look out. Seems a lot of folks still have old coal left over in their basements from back in the sixties when coal was king here.
By your bio, it looks like you are in Minnesota. I had two young CID Agents working for me while I was stationed at Camp Pendleton, CA, back in the eighties, that were from Minnesota, great folks. He and she ended up getting married. Never made it up that far North, but understand it is beautiful country.
Question: Have you ever heard of a "Sunny Jim" heater/stove? Looks similar to a Warm Morning heater. Its made by Atlanta Stove Works. I remember a lot of area residents used them back when I was growing up. My dad said they was designed to burn coal and wood, but don't know about anthracite. I might install it in the front room and give it a try until I find something better. Wife really wants something fancy/antique like a small Glenwood base burner. This old Sunny Jim is in excellent condition, just sitting in the back of his out building.

They had filed bankruptcy but doing a google search I did find them on recent news so maybe they are in business again. Make sure to ask them if they sell coal to TSC anymore. The answer is likely no but maybe they are some if they are still in business. Wish I'd get some, lol. I had some Kimmels and it was nothing like TSC has been for years. What Ive gotten all but the 1st year has been Reading. Maybe 5 or 6 pallets since then. If you have had both you'd know the difference, LOL. But your right, maybe it doesnt matter. It would be nice if TSC corrected it on their website.
Heres a link to the topics started here that include TSC, starting with most recent, not just for you, but for others to search thru too. search.php?keywords=tsc&terms=all&author=&sc=1&sf ... mit=Search
