    I saw Geneva pellets for $239/ton. I've never used these before. Are they decent pallets?

    I used their Maine's Choice pellets (same pellet different bag?) and found them to be very ashy too. They were one of the hottest I burnt though.

    I've been using Geneva's for 3 years since I installed my XXV. They've had good heat and have been emptying the ash pan about once a week which I didn't think was excessive. The only others I've tried in a pinch were from Tractor Supply and those burned really poorly.

    Does the comparison data on this link seem fairly accurate....... Pellet Test Results
