I paid $289/ton for Oakies back in May.

Yes, but is it just worth the $10 extra bucks to get the Okies? Heard good things, but I've never burned them.
Yes it is... For more BTU's and less ash, hell...$10 is a ltlle more than a pack of cigarettes today that burn and don't give you anything but cancer.
This is exactly where we are heading with Lowes jacking up the price on GT's to ~ $270/ton. At that price I'll pay the extra $20/ton for a super premium pellet.
For $10.00 more dollars, it's a no brainer. The Okies are worth it.
Just purchased 4 tons of Green Supreme from HD using a 10% Lowes moving coupon. Service desk first tried to decline the coupon since I hadn't moved . I told them that would be no problem, I'd just go up the street to Lowes. The price for the pellets was $209 less 10% = $188 plus the $65 delivery. Will get a pallet of Turmans from local farm at $287 plus delivery for the cold days and should be good for the season.
I burned some Maines Choice from 2011the and they were pretty good IMHO. I would not hesitate to buy them again. I would say average ash above average heat...some have complained about fines but I did not find anything unusual.
Thanks, that may be what I end up with, the Tractors supplies have them as well as some of the Lowes.It was 3 years ago when I used them and they where full of fines,I don't do the sift thing if it get to that I will just burn wood,maybe they have gotten their act together.
I got Somersets again this year for 259 p/ton @ Long Pond in NE Conn Pretty good price (around here) for an awesome Pellet.
Shout out to Steve......Your guys were awesome while you were in Fryeburg, That was the best bacon I've ever had!!
Where exactly in Long Pond NE CT did you get the Somersets? I've been dying to try them but can't find them anywhere to try in MA. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I feel your pain... I've also been searching since last year for deals. Frustrated and now it's getting cold! I have not purchased yet, but getting nervous! I bought 3 tons of Green Team last year at a great price also... I think around $167 a ton after coupons and stuff... now they are pricing them at $275 and it makes me sick!
Checked in at Royal Fireside today, no Okies until the end of the month
I can confirm Northeastern Fence in Saugus still has Okies at $5 a bag. Picked up half a ton yesterday.
I hope this isn't a thread deviation, but I'm really worried down here in NC! When I first bought my stove, my local TS had Rocky Mtn., which I loved! This year, they only have Freedom pellets left over from last year. I had to bring back several bags because they were moisture damaged. They guy told me their low demand for them has made them uninterested in keeping them in stock. And, they want $5.79 for these pos pellets!
Long Pond is in Wauregan CT, maybe 15 minutes past the RI border on 395
A great bunch of guys to deal with...
Certain area's have less demand than others. Up here in New England it was that way in early 2K. But these days we can get pellets just about every where, Even in super markets.
Check with some of the other box stores and also the stove shops. You might also find some horse bedding to get by. I had to back in the shortage days. Thery burn just fine, You might need to clean a bit more. But at least you'll have heat. Most horse bedding pellets are softwoods like the Rocky Mountains.
The Lowes in Quincy has Somersets for $4.38/bag or $4.18/bag if you buy a ton. I'm not sure how many they have left in stock but as of this morning they had about 1/2 ton on the floor.
I bought the last 3 ton of somersets there . thanks Cromulent
SU-WEEEEE PIGGY PIGGY
Yep, local Price Chopper has Warm Fronts (left over from last winter) "on sale" for $250/ton.
wanna be mine and go pick them up for me?
Is that a new club starting???
Glad I bought all I could before you got the rest!
