Have not heard any talk about this brand lately. Are they still in business? Had 2 tons in bags in my barn from a few years; just loaded it into my basement to burn. Even after 2+ years under cover, some bags had water in them, frozen solid in a chunk. Guess the bags are not porous !

We've been burning Kimmels nut coal for years. Just got a ton last week and so far no water in any of the bags. Also got 2 tons of the kimmels bagged rice coal earlier this fall and not one bag with water.
This coal is good coal, burns hot and not any junk in mixed in the bag.
