I know of several places in north central KY but you'd probably be better off looking for something in western West Virginia and/or eastern KY. I think that would be much closer to you.
It seems the few people that I've met that still burn east KY bit are in those areas and pick it up at the mines.
Best of luck and Happy Thanksgiving.
