    Love these things! Try them if you get the chance. Been burning them for a week. Qualify for #3 on my list of top fives. Will make sure a ton of em is in the garage for next season for sure! [​IMG]

    Can't find them around here, you will have to send me a bag or 10 ;), then I can give you an honest opinion.

    Hmmm, I saw those at East Coast Lumber in Hampstead NH last Saturday. Passed on them though as I was in a bot of a rush and that place is an hour from home, I think they were 299/ton and 6.?? a bag.

    I tried a few bags. I got them from East Coast Lumber in Hampstead NH a week ago. They were good, but then I tried Cubex from N.E. Coal in Pelham NH. Those are even better. :)

    Hi Mike. I don't think you'd be buying where I do and prices
    from your CT pellet houses are often more reasonable than here,
    but they are presently $274 at south shore wood pellet in holbrook ma.

    Not so sure, I've seen regular Okies for $299 or $300+/ton all season around here. And if the Black Hills are supposed to be a better quality they would be priced at that price or higher here. $274 sounds very reasonable.

    I don't know if they are supposed to better than Okies which he sells for $299, but I like and buy both brands.
    Okies burn a little hotter in my pellet eater but both are very nice. Some people dislike both so it's def a good idea to try a couple bags before jumping into a ton.

    East Coast is $6.35/ bag. I also tried them.....twice. They were OK in my stove but no great shakes. At $300/T I can find pellets I like better. My stove liked the Cubex in the "Northern" bags and the Vermonts best.
