    I noticed when driving by my local hardware store (after they were closed) that they had a dozen or so tons of pellets outside. I stopped to look to see what brand they were. They were wrapped with a black weather cap, that had nothing on it at all, but a white stencil painted "NUT." any ideas what they are?

    They weren't pellets, they were bags of nut coal.

    hmmm, good point. what is the approximate size of a piece of nut coal? from what I felt of the bags, the contents seemed small like pellets. but I was feeling thru many layers of plastic.

    after hours at your local hardware store? Lol. Good thing
    the cops didn't come by. Woulda been a hard thing to explain
    your way out of. :) ;-P
    Sorry, I could not resist!

    I do believe they were pellets, destined for those too lazy to do the real wood thing. Probably a simplistic attempt to make pellet burners feel like they are truly independent fuel burners. :blank:
