I am not an expert on coal, you guy's talk about quality. How is that determined
I have a Leisureline stove. is the ash different when it's burnered on the low setting,
rather then on high, is the ash color,texture, brittle, and size determine quality after burned :?

If the ash is 99% ash, with very little if any black, unburnt coal, then it is good coal.

Tell him where in your basement you want it dumped and offer to give him $300 for it delivered. Free removal sounds like a bargain if they don't burn coal and want it out, I'd still drop off a ham and a case of beer or Pepsi to the dude for giving it to you. It's like scrap metal in my area, I offer to haul it away "free" if someone asks. Sitting scattered throughout broken down houses it's just trash cleanup and a heck of a lot of work. Once it's all sorted out, cleaned up, and at the scrap yard then it's money.
Burning coal is definitely worth the extra work involved.
