I ran out of Blashak so I bought 14 bags of TSC coal. It was all they had on hand. This is completely different from the last ton I bought from them. Much smaller. Less glossy. Doesn’t take off and run away like the last stuff would.

Tbh it’s identical to the Blashak. The flame even looks the same. I’ll be interested to see if it burns down to rocks and clinkers up like the last stuff did or if it just burns to small chips like the Blashak does.

I’m finding the tsc coal varies from one pallet to the next. Just finished a pallet that was full of clinkers - it looked like bits of iron fused together in the ash and almost sounds like silver coins clinking when dumping the ash bucket in driveway. In the Warm Morning I found it very important to keep draft down to -.02 or the small clinkers will grow huge. With good draft control tending is a matter of rotating the whole grate briskly then shaking the dump section in and out the clinkers would drop into the pan. Just transitioned to another pallet and this coal is burning nice with noticeably less primary air. It’s more gray powdery ash and the pieces are larger with much less fines. Only difference in packaging I noticed was the clinker coal didn’t have the handle molded in one end of the tsc plastic bag.

Bumping this thread up as TSC has a pre order summer sale going now. I bought 6 tons for $309 per ton.

Funny how some here claim TSC Rice varies from pallet to pallet or season to season. I dun no I just burn it. Been 5 yrs now on TSC and it keeps my home toasty down to -40 deg f here in Northern NH and the Harman Super Mag runs just fine on it. I burnt Blazchek before TSC for years and don't notice a difference at all. Or maybe I just don't care about the small differences as long as it keeps the house warm. Friggin local dealers rape the market cause we are so far away from anywhere. Thank TSC for opening a stone finally within a reasonable distance.

The problems are with nut coal, not rice. People see TSC and assume nut I guess.

We’re still at $6.99 per 40# bag of nut in central Va. Honestly considering stepping back to wood (do Not want to). 🤬

Its $8.99 here, LOL Except during the sales. 6.99 east of the Mississippi River. In the fall they sometimes do 2 for $10 or $12 sales and do the 15% off thing once or twice a year. Thats when to buy LBrook. During the sales. Some areas that may not be an option, like if it has to be ordered.

I laid away 3 tons of nut last week for $278.50/ton here in northern NY. Regular price $324.50 ($6.49/bag). Got the $15/ton discount and had a 10% off coupon. Got 2 tons back in the spring with the last 10% coupon.

That’s the way to do it! Good to hear there is an opportunity (maybe). Kinda getting the vibe here that it’s stuck this season in our area and $350.00 per ton is tight.
