Do you have an analysis on this coal? I like the size. I've been buying mine in Kentucky but galax va is roughly thesame distance away. May I ask what the price per ton is?

This load has some rock in it. It seems to be hit or miss with the quality. Last year i got 4 ton that was awesome with very little smoke and burned blue, never seen bit burn like that. I pay $125 a ton but, its only 30 min off my route after work. Closer to the Kentucky line it will be cheaper. I could go in to West Va about an hour and half drive and get bit $75 a ton.

Thanks..I bought my last load from a place in middlesboro ky... 100/ton. The smaller size burned pretty well but i liked the stove better on the bigger stuff. Stove size I think is what they called it. Gassed off little slower which was good since I had a 6" chimney (too small) ..puff backs can really catch your attention. Lol. The stove size had a lot of streaks of something in it and burned a little cooler but was fine.
