    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

    Ashy and always forming clinkers! Only pellet I've used that formed clinkers every day regardless of my habitual cleaning of my stove
