    I find them to be more than a shoulder season pellet. Other than the 75-100 bucks a ton that isn't in your pocket and remains in mine, you are not missing anything.

    I like that money in my pocket too! I agree, Much better than a shoulder pellet. I'll still hit the pellet house for the top shelf for the extreme cold pellets. Greene Teams and Stove Chow both get me into the low numbers before I swap them for the heat crankers. 2 tons of shoulders and 1 1/2 ton of cold weather pellets get me through the average winter. With these I could get by with 1 ton or less of the cold weather stuff!

    Average pellet cost per ton in my area is around $240 or $720 for 3 tons

    I paid $176, $184 and $188= $548

    My savings is about $170 clams. Heck of a down payment on that ton of hotstuff I need! :)

    That is exactly how I feel. I have no intention of shutting out my local stove shop pellet guy. I fully intend to make a purchase with him at the right time.

    Thanks Jay. Calling the guy tomorrow. Still had them, and I got him down to $2.50 a bag. $75 for 30 bags. Not a bad deal at all..... Love it. I have been burning some of the Tidy Timber's that I got with my Englander stove that I purchased a couple weeks ago. I gotta say, They are not that bad. Not bad at all.. Penningtons are by far, 2 times as bad as them.
    They gave me Good heat and a = clean stove. Had some fines, but since I have been sifting them with the Pellet sifter. I only see them when I pour them. The stove gets nothing but pellets now. The Quad loves it.

    Sorry about the relevancy of this post.

    Just stopped at Lowes in Wallingford CT. They had about 20 Greene Team bags at 5.97 a bag. For my $$ that's too much.

    Bigger question is why are there no posts to the price link on the forum? No updates since January!!

    Are the pigs not divulging their secret pig pricing??? Hmmmmm

    Not that it matters but GT has shipped as set out below. Pricing is probably not favorable at this time but the stock is or will be there shortly...

    We have shipped to the following Lowe's locations:

    Store City, State Phone # Date Shipped

    1 LOWE'S GREENLAND, NH (603) 373-2158 16-Mar-11


    2 LOWE'S ROCHESTER, NH (603) 833-4000 14-Mar-11

    Lowe's Greenland is $4.68, at least not as bad as my local Lowe's, Danvers at $5.97. Ouch!!

    With a 10% off coupon that would make the Green Team in Greenland $210. Not bad!

    Not bad, indeed, given what we have been hearing in the last week or so. I would get what you need NOW.

    Anyone know the BTU per lb output of the Greene Teams? I can't find it on the website. Woodpellet.com posts BTU output but they don't show any Greene Team. I saw Maine's Choice was 7700 BTU/lb and was hoping the Greene Team was a little higher.

    I know we've beaten this to death but just wanted to put out there that a shipment of GT is on it's way to the Rochester, NH Lowes due to arrive sometime after April 1st. Just in case someone is willing to pay the price!

    Yeah just go an email from Greene Team for shipments to Lowes in Manchester, CT and Newington, CT, on or around July 6th.

    I too am eager to see where they price them during this time of year.

    I just called the Lowes in Amherst, NH this evening (6/23/2011). They received 22 tons of Greene Team and they are pricing them at $298 a ton! So much for early summer pricing. The Hooksett, NH Lowes should be receiving their shipment in early July. I am hoping they will be more reasonably priced. Otherwise, I guess I will wait till the HD/Lowes pellet price wars are in full swing before I buy my next two tons.

    I'm no expert but I don't see the price being radically different from store to store and I wouldn't expect any big box price wars anytime soon. We didn't see the really low prices until January of this year.

    Unfortunately, I think you are right. I just called the Epping, NH Lowes and they received their shipment of Greene Team as well and are pricing them at $298 per ton and $5.97 a bag. That just does not make any sense when I can get Okanagan softwood for $269 per ton at Osborne's Agway in Hooksett which includes free storage. It begs the question are the price hikes from Greene Team or is this Lowes looking for some extra profit from early season buyers? I am also wondering if the release of oil from the Strategic Oil Reserves will have the effect of dropping pellet prices even more later in the summer. I guess that is another discussion thread.
