    Hello

    It is 25 Deg F in Salem NH at 10:45 PM already!! The over night low was 21 degrees!! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!

    So I just dumped in a bag of SUPER PREMIUM Geneva wood pellets
    http://www.genevapellets.com/pellet_quality.html

    Less Than 0.5% Ash
    8200 BTU/lb
    Less Than 4% Moisture (Maybe even less because they were sitting next to the pellet stove!)

    So what are you using tonight?


    P.S.
    Still got some Clean Fire Pacific Blend for the zero degree weather!!

    Burning Greene Team here.
    27 degrees outside, 76F in living room stove
    on #2 out of 5 settings.
    These are the hottest pellets I've ever
    bought from a big box store. Saving
    the Okies for the real cold temps.

    Eden wood pellets. The batch I have does have some plastic here and there but they are hot enough to over look the plastic.

    Glad to hear that Mike. I have a ton of the above mentioned Lig's Hard/Soft blend that seemed to burn pretty good, and also a ton of the straight hardwood....both w/ the green labels bags. Those, and 2/3 ton of Barefoots leftover from last year should see me through the cold weather.

    21 here and switched from Stove Chow to Somerset's, left my stove on a 2 all night, went from 74 to now 64 in my living room where the stove is, big disappointment!!
    Maybe Chow is as good as Somerset's?
    Batch of Chow I have is very light colored and very short pieces.
    Turned up the stove to a 3 now it's getting warmer as I type.

    Burning a 50/50 mix of Stove chow and NEWP. Weather channel says 24 and accuweather says 27 outside. With stove on 1 (out of 5) all night the downstairs was 65 when I woke up @ 5:30. Barely even put a depression in the hopper.

    We went down to 24 last night - our first "cold" night since we have the stove, but wasn't expecting it and didn't bring in any hotter burning pellets from the shed. Burned American Wood Fibers from HD @ $3.94/bag with good results.

    Woke up to 24 outside and 71 inside, a couple of degrees cooler upstairs. Stove was on medium/low settings all around.

    Only burning Hamers this year. I know most of you switch pellets depending on the time of the season but I am tired of being disappointed with low cost crappy pellets. Cleaner stove and hotter burn all season long!
