    In the land of pine trees and Indians. Everbody in that area has abudant fireood. Bad marketing was the problem I think as they never got pellets out of the area to develop customers. Seems most pellets in MN come from Wisconsin.

    I got excited there for a minute when I saw Wood Pellets, $75/ton. Until I realized it was outside Grand Rapids, MN but was posted on the Grand Rapids, MI craigslist.

    But at $75 a ton, I can't justify a 720 mile one way trip. Maybe if I was an owner/operator and had my own rig....

    I didn't catch that on my first reading. I don't imagine there are many folks with bulk storage who'd like to haul loose pellets a truckload at a time.

    Even in a bag? A 75 a truckload? That may be more than a ton?

    If I lived close enough, I'd be down for a truckload. My Fahrenheit eats Chit and loves it. Even if there garbage? I would just run a lower fuel setting and the auto clean would run a faster cycle.. No worries.. Ash? What ash?? ;)

    Never trust a seller who doesn't use punctuation. (Joking, but c'mon.)

    Just so everyone knows... I in no way, shape, form, or fashion, have, or have had anything to do with this add other then passing it along as something that may be of interest to the right individual.
