    I tried a few bags a few weeks back I happened on at the Local lowes. Heat was right were I tested last season. Ash level was a bit higher but still very decent. One of the best scored at Lowes besides Somersets.

    Our HD had them (Presto's) for $3.54 a bag or $177/ton. Bought 5 tons about 2 months ago. Looking to get another 4 to 5 of something else, when I can find the right price. Ideally, I would like to have enough for the next 2 seasons. So I can pick and choose what to buy. Have a good feeling that they wont be as cheap as they are now, for quite some time. (Just a hunch, I could be wrong)
    Wish our dealers here locally had more of a choice. Found a dealer within an hours drive, that has Hamer's and Lignectic's Green Label's. But they are pricey and currently out of stock. I hear a lot of people say good things about the GT's. Thats another pellet I would love to find around here. Just one more downfall to living in Wonderful Ohio!!?

    When you say "ordered" do you mean you made an online order for in store pick up?, and if so can you choose what pellets you get if they have more than 1 brand?

    Last week I called Lowes and paid with a CC for Greene Team then
    went and picked them up the next morning. I told them if I got there and
    they had anything other than Greene Team ready for me
    I would not be buying them.

    I can tell you that in my GT just purchased on Sunday last have no fines at all. GT states on their website that the pellets are screened twice before bagging to eliminate fines.

    of these bags.

    The bags were clean not really any fines. I wasnt able to burn them overnight , because i still had 3/4 of a bag of okanagan in the hopper( stove is just too good ;) .. I put 2 bags in this morning and will know how they are burning later tonight when i get home.

    The trick is to have her elsewhere when bunkering your pellets. Just be careful where you send her to do some shopping ;-).

    The trick for me has been my flexible work schedule, as a matter of fact i just unloaded 25 bags into the house this morning on my way by while I was working. That seems underhanded until she thanks me again for being warmer. I cant afford to send her shopping and me buying pellets, ;)

    Well lookie here! I finally got some of them Greene Teams at the local Lowes in Torrington. :) With the 10% coupon $188 out the door. 2011/2012 stash all set!

    They had
    Greene Team 14 tons
    Stove Chow 15 tons
    Inferno didn't even bother to count those!
    StarLite 15 tons with another one open on the floor.

    I also picked up 2 bags of the StarLite to try/test.

    Still might get 1 or 2 tons from the local pellet dealers Once I see the early prices, But I don't expect them to be any lower than what I see them selling for now! Possibly more even?

    Hey Jay, let me know how those StarLite's Burn? I found a guy close to me that has 30 bags he wants to sell. He wont sell individual, has to be the whole lot. Never heard of them before, so didnt want to spend the money. If they were like Inferno's or Nature's Heat-less.
