    I hear ya...
    I was really bummed that they were not stocking Eagle Valley's this season, by far the cleanest and hottest pellet I have burned in my stove. Although I have had decent luck with the LG's, my stove seems to be a little more efficent with softwood pellets.

    Picked up a 1.3 of Okie's today for $323.70. Two tons of Envi8's delivered tomorrow for $488.00. Will be sitting on 2.6 Okie's, 2T Barefoot and 4T of Envi8's for the wood stove. That should get me through the winter of 10/11. I hope! Waiting for delivery of a horizontal cap so I can install my new Englander 55-SHP10. This thing is built like a tank. I am really impressed with the quality of the build. Cant wait for the test burn with some nice fresh Okanagans.

    Well I had planned on buying early, but never saw what I thought were buy me now prices. Just recently I found out that sibwoodpellets.com was selling "OKIES" delivered for $260 and I decided to buy 4 tons. Today my pellets arrived and although I did not have to trailer them home I did help unload the trailer that was placed at the door to the garage. So I only had to carry them about 15 feet. Still I wasn't going back and forth all day loading and unloading. So I am pleased to have my winter stash finally in the garage. I'm not looking forward to the cold, but at least I am ready.

    Seeing that I am over 4 tons and have a pellet stove (two of the three criteria) I do believe I am able to attach the highly coveted pellet pig logo to my signature. I will however wait for official approval !

    Very nice looking stacks! I can just feel the warmth already eminating from the potential BTU's!

    Is that an old Cubby w/ a snow blower in the background?

    Just pulled the trigger on 4 ton of Hammers from Primo Pellets at $224.00 a ton + $80.00 delivery charge, with 1 hour 51 minuets and 36 seconds left to the summer blow out special. :bug: Thought about picking them up with the truck and car trailer but the thought of unloading and stacking 4 ton by hand made $80.00 look awful cheap when they will bring them to me and all I have to do is move them with my pallet jack!

    All that along with 1/2 ton of Green Team left from last season I should be good for the winter......or darn close.....I hope!


    Good Luck Everyone!

    No one around here even thinks about pellet sales until the fall. Finally saw an ad for a sale last week and picked up my supply this week. Guess that's what happens when summers are usually averaging 90 degree days. No one thinks about getting warm again until they need to. Oh, and the highest price on pellets here is only $219 a ton, so sales don't hit much better.

    I just bought some Treecycle pellets and while investigating the pellets I noticed there are 2 different looking bags. One has the image of a tree on it and the other has a stove on the front. Does anyone know why that is??

    They have recently changed from the green(tree) bag to the bag with the stove. The stove bag is the most recent batches of pellets they have been making while the green bag should be dated somewhere to show if it's the old pellets or new pellets with just old bags. I bought 3 tons of the 06/2010 batches with the new stove bag which is probably the first month they used for the stove bag.

    Where did you purchase these? Is there a date on either style bag?

    Got them from Pellets4U.com....just found the date at the top....07/10....was getting concerned that maybe there was some hold over ones from last year that I got stuck with after hearing all the bad from last year.

    I was under the impression that you got a mix of both bags. So, you have all new stove bags which is good otherwise if you have any of the older bags you would need to find a date on them to see if they are the new batch or old.

    I don't think that the older pellets are still out there for sale anymore that is why the new bag makes it easier to know it's not the old stuff.

    BTW, I also ordered mine from Mike T. @ pellets4u

    I missed the sale at Menards. Truck was broke down at the time and I had no way to move 3 tons. Maybe they will have another sale.

    I guess they may be using up any old bags they have laying around as well but there should be a complete transition to the new bag with the pellet stove picture, IDK. As long as it is dated 7/10 you have the new pellets and that is what matters.
