    We are seeing many new brands in this area. So many I can't keep up! Pretty sure its due to some of the reliable brands being MIA this season. So pellet dealers are digging up some new stuff to peddle to the burners.

    I'll keep an eye out for them and add them to my ta do list. ;-)

    I'm here! Just bought a new Fusion, so I been playing with it and digging for info and upgrades! Wheels and tires first. Love the new toys hehe!

    Don't be surprised if they are actually some of the stuff you already have. Many pellet brands do some funky rebagging to try and trip us up. But we usually figure this out. If the OP can post some pictures of the bag and info on where they are milled. We usually can figure out the mill and what other products they bag. ;-)

    I picked 3 bags tonight at the local Wal Mart. They were $4.67 a bag. Haven't tried them yet but will as soon as the hopper is empty.

    There is also Cheshire Pellet in Fitzwilliam, NH on Rt 12 just north of the MA border. I drive by the plant every day going to and from work. The plant looks a little messy and it appears they use old pallets or construction waist. The sign on the building is claiming $240 a ton. I have yet to get up the courage to put any of their pellets in my stove.

    Has anyone else hear of them or tried them?

    Same here, 3 bags at Walmart, I imagine you can get them at all Walmarts. They are made in a former pulp mill at Portage Du Fort Quebec by a canadian, british, dutch conglomerate and I bet they are good. At $4.67 They are the cheapest I've seen this year.

    I'm originally from Pembroke. They have the best wood in the country up there so the pellets should be good.

    Funny you mention Pembroke. I contacted the company and apparently they only have one distributor in the Ottawa Valley, and it's all the way in Pembroke :(

    Sorry about that Brian. I guess they have bigger fish to fry than you little guys.Lol. I think they are in Walmart and who knows where else. I think they are looking mostly at the European Market where oil is like liquid gold literally. Where do you live, if you don't mind me asking.

    I'm south east of Ottawa, but north west of Cornwall.

    I've been burning Curran, made just across the river from Cornwall, for a couple years, so I'm interested to see how these compare.

    Hi Gabe, who is your local dealer? I'm just up the from Gardener across the NH border. I'm looking for some good pellets at a good price. I've been quoted $375.75 for 65 bags of Okies from Hamshaw in Keene. Delivery is only $16 though.

    I just dumped a bag in the hopper and I will let you know how they burn. Here is a pic of the bag...

    Couldn't remember the name of the pellets carried at our local Wal-Mart ... but these are likely them. Only problem I can see is that our local store keeps them outside.

    Interesting that this former pulp/paper mill went to pellets. Kenora, ON started OSB production when the pulp/paper mill closed... don't think it has the same job value as the old mill though. Abitibi-Bowater in Fort Frances, ON put in a co-gen for their waste pulp.

    Have used SBC Firemaster pellets (premium pine pellets from Langley BC - these guys also ship cedar kindling and prepackaged firewood). My stove seems to like these the best so far with less build up on the glass and burnpot. These are available at Canadian Tire for around $5 Cdn a bag. Would think they should be available in Southern Ontario too.

    Waiting for the reviews...

    Well I'm happy that living in northern ontario has some benefits. ie a selection of pellets. In toronto there is no selection to speak of, walmart doesn't sell them neither does home depot.
