My local Lowes has been out of pellets since the begining of last week and usually they know when they are getting more however nobody knows when? Had to drive around and visit 3 other big box stores until I found some! (Also, never go by their inventory -- got to the store that has 1300 units only to find none). On a related note I had to settle for infernos....and i gotta say I'm very surprised; I can tell its not as hot as the big boys....Cubex, Barefoots....but very little ash. I hate how its going to snow here Monday, yet there are no pellets to be found....If i needed to fertilize my lawn i would be all set though! Gonna have to stock the garage up in the summer for next winter!
