Lightning, I have a hitter 503 insert that does well on it if your careful and am the proud new owner of a Legacy sf270 boiler, that I am currently installing.

I used to burn it in a gentleman janitor, but getting it sized small enough 3/4” was getting to be a real problem, so I will clean it up and sell it and hope I like the new legacy boiler.

Its been posted long before, but today i got my trial ton of Bit from HMZ Coal in Portage/Cassandra, PA. I paid $120 picked up including tax for a half Pittsburgh nut and half Indiana (PA) nut load , but he has a great little place. A very large selection of Bit and carries two large, popular anthracite brands. Once i pulled in i immediately recognized the smell from growing up in Altoona and a more so from a few years spent up in DuBois for college. Im not a very good (experienced) judge, but i had blue ladies in less than an hour on my first coal fire of my life, in a custom burner i bought just last week, so im guessing its pretty good? Or you guys are pretty good teachers, I REALLY appreciate this thread, it has taught me valuable information beyond locations and has been educational and instrumental in probably saving MUCH more money than already planned. Thank you.
