    I tried 10 bags this winter. Burned hot and ash was acceptable. My Quad liked them. :)

    They are ok. Get a 10% off and they become great. I tried 12 bags. Thought the heat was on the low side with ok ash. Bags weren't very dusty. On 20 or below days had to up the stove to the next heat setting when using these as compared to lignetics or omalleys. I'd consider them bad compared to something like barefoots.

    Picked up a 1/2 ton at lowes a few months ago. Lots of ash, ok heat. Fines/dust were low though.

    Thanks everyone. If they are there next time I stop in I'll grab a few bags to try them out.
