This was my third season burning coal and I have learned so much since I found this forum . My first two season was bad but after all the reading and a couple of question here and there I have come a long way so I must say ,THANK YOU ALL,.Hopefully next winter will be a new stove with new challenges.

Even with Oil down to $2 a gallon? But I see your in PA so you get the coal cheaper I bet. I pay $325 per ton.

It has been that! A learning experience....and I believe someone has said that with coal, you keep right on learning! Season after season....things keep coming up that add to one's experience with burning coal!

I want to join in thanking this great group with a huge amount of experience that they are all so willing to share, to help out newbies like myself.....I am so glad I got into coal but it would not have been possible without the wisdom passed on by members of this Forum!
