    I just found a local supply of "Pro Pellets" but have never read anything about them on this forum.

    I hope to pick up 3-4 bags and give them a try but thought I would see if any of you have experience with them.

    Looks like they are manufactured in Indiana

    Thanks

    I had 44 tons last year about this time
    Took forever to get to me by rail then truck
    most of them were wet or damaged
    and burned like CRAP
    But then again just about all pellets now are not like the good Ol 100% fir we used to get.

    Burning a ton now, went back for another ton. The ones I have burn clean, no fines, tiny amount of dust. By far the best pellet I have burned this year, went through Pennington's, Marth's, Somersets. My two cents...

    I took 22 ton in December

    Best pellet I have ever had
    but mine came from the plant in lower Michigan
    I have been advised there is a difference in product from this facility to that one.

    Sting, are you the 'Sting" from another page also? I'm rjani on that one. Yep, I forgot to mention the plant, that is where mine came from, via Hampton MN.

    Aw, luck with the TC? I bet that is right on. By the way, and not to give you a hard time at all, but I believe the stove is a Castile? Moot point for sure either way.

    Daffy, two tons so far, great stuff, and Paul is pretty cool too. I'm thinking of getting more, he has 6 or so yet, just don't want to store over the summer as the crib turns into my boating crib during that time. Nice corn too, surprised it is still yellow it is soooo clean. Aw, good to hear!

    Thanks everyone!

    I just picked up four bags to see for myself.

    My supplier tells me they come from lower Michigan.

    I left some info of my experience with these pellets about 1 month ago or so. I bought 1 ton and returned them a week later. After 2 -3 burn cycles the grate became plugged up. No adjustment would fix this, needless to say I could not burn them at night so back they went. I bought them from TSC, they had a lot of them but they were sold out when I returned them. I also use an insert and maybe this could have contributed to the problem but I don't see how.
