COAL Where to Buy on the WEST COAST - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • COAL Where to Buy on the WEST COAST

    Does anyone have any source of COAL on the west coast?

    I live in Oregon and I call a Ferrier and he has 50 lb for 28.90 and if I buy by the TON he will give me 1.00 off each bag.

    I think that is a JOKE and like buying for a speciality story.

    Coal cant cost 1000.00 a ton?????

    Check with your local blacksmiths. They have sources of coal and you may be able to go in with someone on a bulk purchase.

      I haven't bought it, but I know that bagged coal is an order of magnitude more expensive than bulk coal. Most places, outside northeastern Pennsylvania, have given up on coal heating entirely. Ask at old line ice dealers, fuel oil dealers, even independent lumber yards. These are the businesses that grew out of the old coal yards.

      I did a google maps search for "coal near bend or" and a half a dozen dealers of coal stoves popped up. They would surely know about local bulk coal dealers.
