So I picked up a ton of bear foots was I ran out of my regular pellets. Have to say not impressed at all. Since the pellets are much smaller in length my burn pot seems to have many unburned pellets. I run my englander on 3 and the pot is overflowing. My old pellets didn't have a problem. I could run my pdvc on 9 and not have an issue. Just hate to keep adjusting the feed plate in the hopper for every ton I use. Plus I noticed the heat output was low and caked the inside a lot sooner.
