Id like to see what they look like. IS it just pieces of coal? or were they compressed coal dust kind of like charcoal?

They looked much like Kingsford charcoal for your grill. Maybe a little bigger in size. Made from coal dust compressed.

Probably used coal that was otherwise waste or tough to market. Kind of like Pringles potato chips, made from pieces of broken chips that would otherwise be waste.

I came across a pallet of compressed coal logs quite a few years ago. Actual dimensions are a little foggy but they were uniform 4 or 5 inch diam cylinders about 18" long wrapped in some kind of plastic. There was no company info on the plastic or pallet. A friend of mine is a chimney sweep and found them at a customers house, they wanted to get rid of them.

I used them in the hand fed on top of a bed of nut coal or in with some firewood. They burned OK, added BTU's to the house and were FREE! :D
