About to make another order for a pallet of fuel for the open fire. Got Black Diamond rubbish from CW the last time so won't be going back. Am seriously tempted by the large ovoids even though they are more expensive. Do you get much of a flame with them?


Yeah they have a flame for about an hour and then they start to glow and radiate out the heat . If you want more flame you can bang on some wood after a while which i do myself, a great combo i have to say

I got both ovoids and black diamond last time from coalwarehouse, the black diamond is absolute muck, but the ovoids are very good, specially for a stove, will definitely get them again

Same - just ordered this evening. Worth contacting them about what they have available and whether it's suitable for you.

They've a bag called 'Triple Heat' which is a mix of ovoids and coal - they're sending a couple of sample bags with my tonne order to see whether it's an option for again.

I got small ovoids last time, went with a 50/50 mix of small and large this time. Very happy with what I got last October.

Yes,
Pat sent me 5 bags of some sort of doubles. He said use a shovel of them when lighting the fire as it gets it going quicker.
real gent to speak to on the phone.
Anyhow.
I got my last load in September, I still have a full bunker almost ( 10 x 20kg bags ) from that load.
Fantastic value.

Got 1 ton of ovoids from coal warehouse. Thankfully no difference in quality compared to last year's order. Great value at 337 euro all in.

Hmm.
That was cheap
I paid 384 for my tonne from Ecoal
I did get the extra 5 bags though,
Still..Your load sounds cheaper.

Two quick questions for anyone who used CW recently.

1. If you got Black Diamond, has the quality issue been sorted.

2. Do you still email Liam Connelly with your details after placing order with CW and wait for them to ring you back.

Want to get half ton of both coal and ovids, torn between BD and Columbian. Got BD last year and it was grand but have read here of others having problems with it since.

How did you get the extra five bags? I’ll be ordering again from the same company around the end of March.

Indeed,
That offer finished at Christmas as far as I am aware, But I contacted them in the meantime to say I would be ordering a second tonne shortly after Christmas and would they include the 5 extra. They agreed as I was a returning customer.
