    I have some left over pellets from last year and the date on it say 10/06. I got 6 tons yesterday and the date is 6/08. not even thinking, I put the new pellets on top of the old ones. So does any one know if pellets go bad?

    Being a relative newcomer to pellets, I'll say what I think about this. If your pellets are in good, unopened bags, and in a relatively dry place, they shouldn't go bad. Obviously, moisture and excessive handling is going to degrade pellets.

    IMO, if your bottom bags are in good shape, and aren't laying directly on the ground (air space under them), you should be good to go when you finally get to them.

    My 2 cents.

    As long as you kept them dry and the density is kept you will be good. Density breaks down when pellets are stored outside or they get damp. Please remember to ask if your pellets were stored inside or out and for how long they were left outside when you buy.
