I like my Kimmels coal a whole lot. Nice heat and not a lot of ash. Burn some and give us a review.

That's good. I was very nervous when I was purchasing my 22.5 tons this summer. It would have been real bad to get caught with that much bad coal. I figured that the worst case scenario is that I would sell it and make a profit. I wish I had some Superior to compare it to since that seems to be a benchmark coal.

I've tried both Blashak and Kimmels with about the same result. I haven't seen enough difference to justify spending an extra $45 a ton for the Kimmels. The Blashak leaves a nice tan colored ash where the Kimmels is more brown in color and not as fine.

I am thoroughly pleased with the heat output and limited ash from my recent coal from Hudson. Would reccommend anyone in scranton area to consider this breaker. I have Superior coal as well, and the Hudson is just as good from what I can tell. outside temp is 20, my house is 81. burning a gibraltar with no blower, heating 2700 sq ft.

Hey Hugg,

How much did it cost at Hudson? What size are you burning?

Looks like I need to make a run from CNY before too long.

Thanks

Just called Hudson, it's $150 a ton picked up.

570-655-4151

Be sure to call ahead of time especially if you are getting rice, they are opened on Saturdays.

You're best bet is to show up on about Thursday early in the morning if the rice is low.

I currently am burning nut in my gibraltar. yep, 150.00 ton. The ash is Definitely different than the superior. Hudson ash is white and the ash is powder. Superiors ash was reddish and granular. both good heat. :D

Thanks, Richard. Will do.

Don,
I bought 4 ton off a fella that trucked a bunch in for his shop. With gas being lower I thought I'd visit a breaker to check it out at the source.

Stay warm :up:

Just got coal from Lenig and Kosmer in West Cameron. Burns great, little ash, and cheap. Gotta Love it.

I live in the pocono's right outside of Scranton. Does anyone know where I can buy some good bagged coal. The first bagged I use seemed to be very dusty and dry.Today I opened a bag of Blascheck and it seemed to be a little damp. not as dry as the other. I am new to all this and have only been burning coal for abount a month. Thanks.
