Anyone have experience burning this new blend from SA? I know it's too early for 98% of us, but any additional feedback from you DHW guys would be welcome. I would like to stock up for the winter in a few weeks.

I have bought from the old Hudson in the past and loved the sizing and washed product, but did not care for the ash content. I would drive an extra 1:15 to buy from the old UAE instead. As reference, I would empty my ash pan once a day after two shake downs with UAE, with the old Hudson, about 3 full pans a day!

That's what I do with the Blaschak nut (bulk) I burn--empty ash once a day after 2 shake downs

We dropped the gravity down to 1.50 from Hudsons old gravity 1.65, running nothing but premium stripping coal from Glen Lyon. Come down and try a bucket.

Glad the sizing is the same. I found the nut to be on the large size, which my stove likes. I have bought nut at other breakers that was almost 50% pea in my opinion.

Chances are if I drive over, I'm going to try a single axle worth lol.

If there is one thing that was always consistent with Hudson it was the sizing. You won't find undersized pieces, try comparing their rice to somewhere else and you'll find a lot of barley in the other product.

Are you talking about heavy media process? As in a lower specific gravity for the liquid media? Or is this a centrifugal force type of "gravity" that has been reduced? Anyway, it sounds like a very interesting process, I'm going to have to go on a breaker tour some day. 8-)
Thanks for helping out!

This place is incredibly unreliable. They are usually out of at least one type of coal (rice, pea or nut). I have been trying to get nut or rice for two weeks and they have none. First I was told it was a problem with a screen, and then I was told the breakers down. I tried calling this morning and the phone is apparently disconnected. I can't see this place being open long as they can't provide coal ... that's pretty important in the coal business. I do have to say ... it's pretty good coal when they do have it! It was an ok deal when I needed some bagged coal ...$6/bag. A month later they raised it to $7/bag.

Sorry it's not to your likeing.

Breakers do schedule their shut-downs/mainteance for when it's too cold and water easily freezes and they would be forced down anyways.
Only realiable way for one to insure their own coal supply it to buy early and stockpile more than one exspects to need for one season. :idea:

I just finished putting the last of my nut coal from here in my Olix. I was very pleased with how the coal burned.
At first I thought the ash content was high, but after measuring by weight on a house scale I got from 11 to 12%.
Approximately 52 lbs of coal per day average which I consider the norm. I always say my stove is a wood stove first that
can burn coal.
Sizing varied at times but overall was good for me. Fines were minimal and burn right up in my stove anyway.
Plus the coal was clean to start with. So again, this burning season went well. I'd buy it again.

Now I'll transition to wood to finish off the season.

So Spanky gives it the thumbs up.

Not too bad. It really wasn't too bad up until the last six weeks I'd say. I think only three days
I had to turn the baseboard electric heat on for a bit to take the edge off in the morning.

I'm sure it was a little chillier up your way.

Sorry I missed this before but a short term shortage of coal at this time of the year is hardly abnormal especially considering the weather through March of this year. In addition to the weather it's through the latter part of January and March people will be getting a second load. I'm not specifically speaking for them but they are going to take care of their contracts first followed by the dealers and or their own residential customers getting deliveries. You the consumer coming in off the street are at the bottom the list.
