Anyone know where I can find larger pieces of bit coal to burn in my furnace? I am currently burning everything from fines up to fist size but want to try larger pieces. I am in the Clarksburg/Salem area.

I realize this is an older post. However, we have been buying very large lump at work. It's from a place near Chelyan. I realize that's quite a drive for you but it's only $50 per ton.

I will try to get the phone number for you tomorrow.

DPF 350,I'm afraid to report that 'Ol Voodoo hasn't been on since Tax Day=15Apr2017.....

However,perhaps his Source could be contained in one of these contacts. Good Luck !

I no longer work at the same place. I will send my old boss a text but he may not answer.
