As I am just about to embark on BURNING COAL I thought it would be a good idea to see if there is a dealer nearby:

So far I have found:
http://www.faircloughfuel.com/

I'll have to find out what kind they sell and their pricing

Located in Maplewood, NJ (Essex county)
I figured I would pick-up some bagged coal (locally) to start. (When I move the stove It'll be via rented cargo van) Then, I would have bagged delivered...The stove I am considering is to be for supplemental heat, hand fired...

When I first started burning coal I bought from Fairclough. I had lots of problems just keeping the stove burning. With the help of this forum I found out that the coal was inferior quality.
Cold Chimney?
Once I got some decent coal it was smooth sailing. At the time Fairclough was selling 50 lb. bags they must have been filling themselves. Since that time they have switched to Reading bagged coal. I don't know where their bulk coal comes from. Fairclough is one of the "old time" coal dealers in Paterson but I would be hesitant to buy coal from them at this time. I still have some stove size from a bulk delivery, I gave a piece to Vig II last year and after 4 days in his stove it looked like this:

Also their prices are too high.

I don't know of any dealers near Maplewood, you'll have to do some research.

Ritter's in Belvidere sells Reading bagged and bulk, they have a scale. Reading is fair quality coal.
SOS Stove, Rt. 57 Port Murry (west of Hackettstown) sells Blaschak bagged.
American Coal, Lafayette, Bob (Crazy4Coal), 973-862-0079, Kimmel's bagged.

I talked to a friend and our local dealer on LI is getting 375 a ton for bagged and about 275.oo for loose plus a delivery charge. If you really love coal I would suggest you buy a tractor trailer load of coal and get a hedge on inflated future prices. You can try baggedcaol.com. They are awesome.

I've had coal ranging from OK to poor quality from People's. They buy from a coal broker, so the quality will always vary. Since I make the run to the deep mine breakers now I haven't been to People's for a while.

How is the quality of their supply? I grew up in Lafayette and almost all of my family is still there, or 15 mins away at the most. No problem in taking the truck for a ride to visit and grab some supply if the price and quality is decent.

Thanks,

Pat

This is my second yr burning coal after 15yrs of wood. Coal quality at Peoples is hit and miss. For the most part its been good. Very little unburnt this year and low ash but season is young. Burned some bagged Reading last year as well and was not impressed. I would say for the price and the convenience its a good deal.
