    well in our move into the new building my pellets got put in the back, so do I move everything to get to them or do I buy a ton?? I decided to buy a ton from the local mill, advertised Hardwood heat for 179 wound up being easy heat brand made local 179.00 a ton.
    First observation smelled like fresh cut wood.
    Second; light in color
    Third; a little longer than Somersets
    loaded a bag in the stove probably wont be burning them till morning. Will keep everyone posted as to the results.
    Has anyone burned these?? Did a search, found a couple year old threads did not look good.

    Can't have enough pellets in my book so the extra ton won't hurt. If you really need to get at the buried pellets my guess is you will! Can't speak for the hardwood heat, never seen them up this way.

    Been burning easy heats for a couple of seasons now...probably 8 tons total. This seasons seem different....more heat...but a little more ash. Overall I have no complaints. Good folks to deal with......I got a bad batch last year.....they took care of me. Thats a great price!

    One of the worst I burned. They started out last season and I found lots of "junk" in them. Some of the highest ash content and lowest heat on my T/C.

    They may work well for some, but for $175, I will buy Sets. I'd rather burn GS's.. My 2 pennies

    Here is the "junk" (plastic). I gave my last ton to my Father at the end of last season. He liked them, but he has half the area to heat and cleans his pot daily.

    You sure you didn't dump a box of fruity pebbles into the stove by accident?

    I would have chase hardwood heat for that price, I believe they are hammers incognito.. Too bad would have been a major score

    Well, went downstairs this morning to check the stove and fill the hopper :eek:
    more ash this morning than in a whole week with Set's
    house was 2 degrees cooler than normal for these conditions and they say that can't happen with a Harman................
    after seeing Dex's post, checked a little closer lots of blue stuff in my 2 bags I opened. Well live and learn, should of moved a few pallets and brought home my Set's.
    These should do until the end of the year, should not need too much more heat here.
    Anyone want some free left overs?????

    Hey Guys:
    Two years ago, I & my associates toured Easy Heat, located east of Dayton Ohio. Their source is old pallets & each were given two bags to try. Well, I never did buy any. The heat output was 100 F less than Contry Boy. They told us that they use diesel fuel to lubricate the dyes. I agree with Dex, these are not top grade pellets.
