I visited Church Coal Firewood & Mulch in Akron today, and Paul told me his current stock of anthracite is Reading.

It did not seem to burn as hot or as easy as Blaschak. Also had alot of junk mixed on with the coal.

Do you mind giving out the names, addresses, and phone numbers for your current sources so I can contact them? I take it you have been pleased with their anthracite. Did they both tell you which mine it came from?
Both places sell only Blaschak. The guy in N. Jackson wants to get a bunch of people lined up for delivery next year. I'll get his adress and phone number to you later. I'm going to get it all at once next year, not a ton here and there like I have been doing. I'll let you know.

Where are you getting your stove from?

My stove is actually going to be a boiler. I have placed an order for an AHS S130 Coal Gun. Unlike most stoker boilers that require exclusively rice, the Coal Gun requires pea. If the price is right, I may be interested in 4 to 6 tons of Blaschak pea. Are you talking bag or bulk from the North Jackson source? Since I anticipate a lengthy install process, I most likely won't be in a position to fire up the Coal Gun until next October or November.

Just picked up 1100lbs. of nut from Church's coal in Arkon. Reading coal he told me. Cost me $175. I hope it works better than last time, looks better.
It's going to be in the 50's for the rest of the week. Might need to open a window, get some fresh air in this house.

Was that a delivered price, or did you pick it up yourself?

I'm burning it now. It has alot of small stuff mixed with the nut, pea size or smaller. So it's doing good in this warm weather. I have the DS turned down low. Around 200-250.

paisan----- I have the D S also -when you say you have it down around 200-250 are you talking about the stack temp gauge? If so how high on the stack do you have it?

My temp gauge is on the stove, upper right hand corner. I do not have a gauge on my stack.

Any updates on the performance of the Church's anthracite?
