Uh oh I didn't mean to start a war here. It would be cool to see the results of those tests. As for Lehigh vs Uae Harmony thats funny you should say that cause my last batch of coal was Lehigh. I did my own test and loaded the stove with Lehigh before I got the Uae Harmony delievered. Maybe my stove likes it better but I don't know. This is my personal expericence and opinion I got 1/3 less ash with Uae Harmony. Also it seems to just burn better and I seem to have to load the hopper less.

Well, I'm betting the color ash isn't the culprit.. I'm bettin there is good white ash and not so good white ash. At the same time I'm bettin there is good red ash and not so good red ash. Interestingly enough, I've recently had some quite brow raising observations. This year, I got 3 loads of coal - 2400 pounds at a time. The first and second load are red ash, burns long and hot, very dense stuff. A month later (Dec 1st) I got my 3rd load, poured it on top my first two loads. 2 days later I see white ash in the ash pan
:wtf:
So between my 2nd and 3rd load my supplier apparently got another load of coal from somewhere else? or maybe its just a different part of the same mine, I dunno. But I do know, I like the characteristics of the red ash better. The white ash seems to be burning up faster. Not sure yet.

I would like to try some of this real good coal that Matt has been talking about. Seems like he is pretty sure about it. Hopefully when the truck is back on the road, I can talk Matt into a little tour of the coal fields. Pick up a ton of the good stuff and see what's got him all excited. :)
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.

Thanks Dennis. Shame about that although I might consider nut if it is true sized nut. My cookstove likes it and the 116 will do either also and actually runs longer on nut because I can pack more in.

What you are saying just blows the whole website away from what has been the norm for the past 4-5 years. Let's put it this way, why don't you come up with test results that prove me wrong. The coal suppliers you keep championing aren't without their following but when it comes right down to it, everyone says the coal burns like this mine or that mine. As far as old timers,,,,, the last EFM 700 I removed was from a 96 year old guy from Leighighton, He said that the coal he had just bought was some of the best he had burned. The guy had trucked it 70 miles from Hazleton. Seemed to think it was Jeddo. He also said that the local coal wasn't that good but was all that was available. He was sorta funny. He said "10 coffee cans a day of coal and 1 coffee can a day of ash." For your particular region, white ash may be a better product than the local red ash. Hasn't been that way for me. I will still buy the TT load of Harmony any day over the TT of Lehigh :)
Im talking about OLD TIMERS from the coal region, LEHIGHTON HAS NO COAL!
Here are some numbers for you from WHITE ash coal from Gale mining I had analyized: AS Received %Moisture 4.83, %Ash 6.11, %sulfur 0.48, %volatile matter 3.94, % fixed carbon 85.12
As Determined %Moisture 0.71, %Ash 6.37, % sulfur 0.50, % volitile matter 4.11, %fixed carbon 88.81
Dry %ash 6.42, % sulfur 0.50%, % volitile matter 4.14, % fixed carbon 89.45

I've used some Centralia stove coal (last season) that was excellent. White ash, low dust and way less ash than this year's Blas. I'd like to get a TT load of UAE or Superior in the future if I can get stove sized.
UAE is also red ash coal, not sure about superior
