    $260 per ton in your area doesn't sound too outrageous. You might find a little cheaper elsewhere, but not much. If that includes delivery, then it seems to be quite reasonable.

    I'd get pellets as soon as you can. They are still out there, but availability can be hit or miss. Don't spend too much time shopping around. You may regret it.

    Our local Aubuchon Hardware is having a sale on pellets beginning the 27th. (I believe that's the correct date.) They will be $250 per ton. Their normal price is $280. The "sale" price puts them only slightly more expensive than the local competition - but it's probably not that bad a price for the Boston area. The only catch is that they do not deliver.

    Still... Their warehouse is full of them. So if anyone is having a hard time finding pellets, it may be worth checking them out. The only catch is that you can't order more than two tons per week.

    hey the local aubuchon guy just said it would be 250.00 per ton. but its a softwood pellet. and from what i understand the hardwood is what i want.

    Not true. While it's true for traditional wood stoves, pellets are a different breed. You don't burn pellets by the cord. You burn them by the pound. Pound for pound, softwood pellets have the same, if not more, BTUs.

    I've heard varying opinions as to whether or not softwood pellets burn hotter. From what I've read, I believe they do. However, they certainly don't burn any less hot than hardwood.

    I just bought from someone in Holbrook at $253 per ton for a hardwood pellet. Delivery was an additional $20 per ton but they deliver it with an electric pallet jack and will put it in my garage.

    Must have been South Shore Wood Pellet. Check them out gotboostido.
    Prices are reasonable. I'd order now before pricing goes up or they
    sell out of them.
