    Have been burning Green Teams and the burned great, but the only pellets currently available in the immediate area is cheat river and stove chow. They both are the same price. Given the choice what would you get? Only have 8 bags left need to pick something soon!

    My stove likes Stove Chow, good heat and minimal ash.

    Grab a few bags of each and see how they burn. I have found that our Harman burns about anything with very little difference.

    Try a little of each. Just make sure they are DRY. The Chow's at HD in Bethlehem and Whitehall have been outside for a LONG time. The ones out front in Whitehall are destroyed due to moisture getting in to them.

    Did you check TSC in Nazareth? TSC in Quakertown has both Cheat River and Premier Hardwood Pellets both $209/ton. I just burned a ton of Premier and liked them. Never tried Cheat River or Stove Chow.

    TSC in nazerath has cheat river but should have green teams next week.
    I ended up buying cheat river, they burn ok and keeps us warm. I guess that is what counts.
