Can anyone recommend a supplier of good Blacksmiths coal or possibly coke in the Lower Hudson Valley  NY ? Or maybe in Bergen county NJ?j

The coal I get now has a few too many stones mixed in and (I think ) too much clinkers. 
None of the stones have exploded so far .
Can't be more specific about the clinkers because I don't have any thing to compare it with. Can't get more than a couple of hours before I have to clean out the clinkers.

Have  you contacted New York State Designer Blacksmith Artists,  New Jersey Blacksmith Association, Pennsylvania Artist Blacksmiths Assoc. PABA and ask where they get coal?

I am looking for something local, e.g. Lower Hudson Valley NY or Bergen County NJ.

That's where I'm getting it now.   As I noted in my post there are too many stones mixed in with the coal and ( I think ) too much clinkers after a couple of hours burning.

The coal analysis is anthracite

13,700 BTUs per pound

7-8% ash

87-89% carbon,

Their Premium anthracite is a ash (8-9%), and carbon (84-87%)

They have blacksmithing coal in 50 pound bags but do not list the analysis.
