About: Aldi Smokeless Coal - Any Good?
Don't listen to this fuel....lol! The Aldi smokeless is all binder, you get loads of ash and lucky if it burns for more than 3hrs. For the same price (£10.50 for 25kg bags) you can buy good quality smokeless containing more anthracite and less binder, producing less ash and an 8h+ burn. Go to your local fuel supplier, this guy has zero knowledge!
Thanks for sharing. Question what is your glass like in the morning if you bank it up overnight, of course allowing for sensible airflow. I simply hate the brown gunk. I tend to use Supacite or Maxibrite. They cost more but clean glass in the morning.
Had a quick look at Defra site for composition. It comprises anthracite (as to approximately 60 to 80% of the total weight), petroleum coke (as to approximately 10 to 30% of the total weight) and a molasses and phosphoric acid binder (as to the remaining weight) . It has an average weight of either 55 or 80 grams per briquette - quite broad weight range IMO.
Also, sorry to nit pick: Wood burner - you mean multifuel appliance. Ie you can burn either wood or coal.
Lidl Smokeless Fuel is called True Flame. It's made by CPL and looks a lot like CPL Brazier coal.
Is it true that normal house coal can damage your stove ?
1 brick of coal can produce enough heat to keep a small shelter warm for hours.
Coal is still king as it puts more heat out than wood/ and you need more wood also....a mix is good/ Stuff what the greens say and the climate change myth / the idea is to keep warm/ and not die/
I can get a 25kg bag smokeless delivered to house for £8. Household coal for £7. Saying that 10 kg bags are handy to move about.
Can i burn the shisha with this smokeless coal
Is it best to leave the doors open? Just wondering if doing so would draw heat out of the room and up the flue like an open fire does.
Hi☺ I live in in the country so I can burn any type of fuel but I do get blow back 😩 when the wind blowing for the east! So is smokeless really smokeless ? When it blows the smoke back it's really very bad thank you for info😀
Thanks Neil, i need some coal for my dutch oven and this looks like it will do the job ;)
