Favorite Overall: Greene Team, but cost, and availability are making them prohibitive. Current Favorite: Homestead from woodpellets.com Heat and ash seem the same as Cleanfire Hardwood's this year. Also in the stash: Green Supreme Logik-E Fireside Ultra (from last year) Maine's Choice (Free from a friend, not crazy about them, but free is free.) Cleanfire Hardwood Worst is a tie between 2 brands from the same manufacturer: North American / Curran Renewable Energy Hard/Soft blend By far the worst pellets I have ever run. Total Junk, High Ash, Low Heat. And the ash is the light fly ash that gets into everything, and insulates your heat exchanger, reducing your stove's effiency.
