Stopped in a local Menards today and found a new pellet to the area. These are Lee Energy Solutions pellets from Crossville, AL. Here is a link to their website which includes a video: http://www.leeenergysolutions.com/wood-pellets It looks like there are some pretty long pellets being produced in the video. I bought two bags to try and haven't opened either yet. I'm waiting for a new K type thermocouple to arrive before I test so I can provide accurate information versus some others I have. These were $3.69 a bag. The video states they are a hardwood/softwood blend, although the bag says hardwood. I'll post results when I test.
