    Rugman...Any thoughts on the burn the other night? I am going to grab a few bags in nashua nh....The dealer is trying to tell me these run hot like the oakies....Claims they are a very good comparision to the oakies without the premium price tag...

    Thanks,

    LT

    I would say that they are pretty good. The pellets seem to have a strong smell and are dark in color. I have been burning Eastern Embers and I think the heat from these are on par with them. I paid almost a dollar more a bag for the Eastern Embers. I had bought a few bags of another brand from Wal-Mart (can't remember the name) that were the hottest I had tried this year so far. I went back to buy some quantity of them but were sold out and replaced by the Trebio. I can also buy some Canawicks that are only $4.99 a bag and I beleive they are hardwood. I tried some bags and they burn good and are pretty hot. I also have tried some True Burn that are $3.99 a bag for a 33 pound bag and they are also very good. The pellet mill is about 20 minutes from me but I have yet to see if I can buy direct from them. There is one more brand here that I haven't tried yet (Comfy Cozy). I am planning to pick up a few bags this weekend to try and will report on them

    I found the Trebio pellets to be OK. I found they needed a little more draft to get the best heat out of them. Being the cheapest on the market here I'd buy them again.

    I picked up a pallet of these Trebio pellets last weekend and have burned a half dozen bags already. I've buring Okanagans for the last couple years and liked them. These Trebios seem to produce more ash than the Okies did but heat seems fine. Color is quite dark, like there's some bark in them. Anyway, we'll see how they work once it gets really cold up here.

    Trebio pellets at pellets direct in Uxbridge picked up $150 a ton right now.

    I picked up a ton, burned a few handfuls just tossed in the burnpot. I like em already.

    Going back for a few more tons. They're 10 min away from my house.

    pellets direct ends today I believe uxbridge ma

    Interesting there isn't alot of info on these on here for the price they'll mix with okie just fine.

    ZERO fines in the bags. Best bags out of anyone I have see so far. None damaged, you could carry a tank inside one of these bags. Triple wrapped very nicely.

    For $150 that's a no brainer.

    I'm thinking of getting 2 more tons beyond what I got already.

    You might find a little more ash with these pellets but their heat value makes the extra cleaning worthwhile. I use the leaf blower trick to clean

    I wouldn't say I had significant ash with these pellets, the only problem I have with Trebios so far is the rock hard clinkers they create in my burn-pot - so far, Trebios are the only ones that do this for me. I do agree, however that they do burn really hot in my stove. As much as I despise Trebios right now, I probably would pick them up again if I could get them for $150.00/ton - they just require a little more maintenance in my stove.

    For $150 clams, I'd be all over them. Even if their just a shoulder pellet. But I doubt a Canadian softwood would be much less than decent. I would expect somewhere in the above average range.

    IMHO its a no brainer! Specially when comparable softies are going for $260 plus in my neck of the woods!

    I dont think they are all softwood. Bag says they are premium grade. Mixed. They atemade in a,big former plywood mill in postage du fort Quebec. O know the area and the wood going into them should be good.

    That should read pulp mill. Owner is a European Canadian consortium and their target market is Europe I n
    Believe. But we on this should benefit from the volume being produced

    All done.

    2 tons added to the inferno pile. Now floor to ceiling. Okies on one side of steps and the mountain on the other.

    Unloaded 1 ton at the shop with the forklift. I should have bought all he had. Maybe I'll go back again.

    This was a absolute no brainer.

    With an additional 1 ton of okies in the spring (and 2 if he sweet talks me) I got a pisser mix pellet that will heat my house for UNDER $1000 the rest of this year and all of next.

    As of right now I have enough to get to 2014 :coolsmile:

    PICS AT 11 :)

    I am now a bigger pellet pig. That's floor to ceiling boys n girls

    Boy do they smell good. Okies on the other side.

    I burned some more throwing them in the stove. Very nice flame. A bit of black curly soot once in a while as seen near the glass but I think it's cause there was so much in the burn pot. The flame was 12-14" tall well into the heat tubes. That's flippin hot.

    Burp :cheese:

    Don't care much for the Canawick's myself as each bag is loaded with dust and fines. Still working on getting the ton of them out of the way to make room for some LGs or Eastern Embers.
