Like I posted earlier I found the same thing with two bags that I bought just to check it out. What a mistake I made. I had to let the fire go out, shovel all the coal out of the hopper, use a spoon to scrape the fines/dirt/sludge paste clogging the feed throat. I'll never buy bagged balschak again. :sick:

Today I was up by Ashland so I decided to swing threw Mt Carmel and try some Rice from the Harmony mine, Got 1580lbs about all I feel safe with hauling any distance in my Dakota. The coal looks good! Fair price! Now to Shovel it into my coal cart and give it a try will be for tomorrows to do list.

I ran out of free Craigslist coal. :( So I rented a u haul and went to UAE for some nut. They are very friendly people and I was out of there in 10 minutes. :D On the way home the trailer had a blowout. So I called the 800 # and they sent out a new tire in about an hour and 1/2.
I got home and unloaded. I returned the trailer expecting to be charged for a new tire since I didn't pay the 8 dollars for the insurance. Instead, they gave me half off the rental. :up: So here's the damage.

one trailer; $15

one tank of gas; $40

3080 lbs of UAE; $231

A four pack of Guinness; $8

Telling Hugo Chavez and Opec to go and F--- themselves; PRICELESS!

Just got back from my second run this week! The boys at the mine were all giddy about the coming snowstorm. :lol: Ran the front edge of the storm all the way home. Good trip, good coal, good country :D
I think a man does what he can, untill his destiny is revealed. Right now that is trying to sell my EFM plate boilers in 520 and 700 sizes.

I am in Connecticut... is there any place out here where I can get UAE coal? Do they bag coal? I would love to try it!! I burn Blaschack and get good heat but I seem to get a lot of ash. Last year I had more ash but this year seems a little bit better.
