I've been given free coal before that was best used to fill in a muddy spot in the path. it actually had yellow streaks in it of sulfur visible to the naked eye. I hope yours is the good stuff! I used it in a trench forge I dug in my back yard to do some box folds in 3/8" plate to make a fire tray for the Santa Maria replica they had in Columbus OH. It filled the entire alleyway wall to wall with coal smoke you couldn't see through.

OTOH a friend was once given a lot of free coke form an old house that used to have a coke furnace in it. I envied him on that gift; though it was a tad dirty having been sitting there a long time after they converted to a new furnace.
