Most likely the closest place to get coal may be Utah. It will be bituminous.

Hey MarkC, if your still reading here, have you narrowed down your list of suppliers in Kentucky? I've called several on your list, BTW thanks for posting it, and I'm not having any luck finding folks who sell to the public. Are you still selling Bit boilers?

Hi All,
This is my first post here. I am in Forest Hills, Pa 15221. I get my coal delivered for $25.00 from Gulf Trading in Braddock, Pa about 1 mile from my house. Last year (Sep 2010) I paid $85/ton for BIT house coal . Got 2 tons delivered for under $200.00. They said they were selling more and more to residental, so they bought what looks to me like a junkyard 5 ton dump truck. last year they delivered my coal in a 30 yard roll off dumoster that they dumped in the street as usual. Said they were having problems with their dump truck.

If anyone knows of other suppliers in the east pittsburgh area, please post.

We picked up a load before the season kicked off from SMJ Inc.(606-743-7111) in Wrigley, Kentucky after getting some intel from "hman." Could not be happier with it, $95 a ton, we picked up nice big chunky stuff that burns great in the Hotblast. Really nice folks on top of the great coal! Now I just need to find someone that can pick me up a dump truck load instead of the 2 ton I can get myself.

Looking to stock up, although probably late in the season to "start" looking. I have an outdoor multi-fuel boiler that like Bit coal. Problem is that I am in Mid Michigan and it's hard to find any around here let alone any quantity. Anybody have any suggestions or an economical way to obtain some?

Thanks in advance!

$240 a ton is best price up in Michigan I have found. I don't have the means to haul enough to justify going to Kentucky. May call on a couple of guys about delivery of a truck load, but that's going to be pricey for sure.

Oxford Reclamation in New Lexington Ohio $75 a ton for lump you can hand pick it or they will load for you. I bought 720lbs a couple weeks ago I have burned a little of it and like it better than bramhi's coal.

I've used this coal also. Burned it all last year, cant beat the price. Burns pretty good in our out door wood/coal boiler.
