    100% Oak, Very clean and darn hot!

    One of the better hardwood pellets out there. 9000 BTU's. They have been kind of hard to find lately.

    They will smoke your Ligs!

    See if they will sell you a few bags. While you are there Pick up a few bags of the Spruce Pointes and I just learned about the Sure Fires. Both Very Hot softwood Pellets. around 8700 BTU's.

    I promise you will like them all.

    Where are you finding Cubex? I haven't seen any for the last 3 years. Best pellets I ever used.

    Hemi, Cubex are hardwood.

    Spruce Pointe and Shurefire are softwood.

    I will not steer you wrong! Please try all 3 brands. The person that told you to use hardwood, Probably has never tried a very good softwood pellet. They are thinking old school. Like the woodstove boys.

    Please trust me, Try them.

    Get a good thermometer and do some temp comparisons. The back of your hand is close. But I will bet all 3 brands put very close numbers. Check against the ligs too!

    Hemi,

    Pick me up on the way by, Forget Geek. He will buy up all the good ones and leave us with zippo!(jk)

    I goofed on one brand its Purefire not Shurefire. Must be getting old and forgetful these days.

    From the stove heat exchanger. Let the stove warm up for at least an hour. Check temps every half an hour or so.

    Cubex are the top pellet made by a company called Lauzon....they are manufacturers of hard wood floors...it is their way of dealing with the waste.
    Anyway...they are among the best hottest pellets out there.
    Around here...Stove Place in Shrewsbury...
