I have, in my garage:
1 Ton of Bear Mt
1 Ton of Natural Glow
3/4 Ton of Blazers/Hot Shots
All are Oregon produced pellets.
I will buy the last of the pellets in the A.M.
I have 3 tons of Barefoots in the garage, but will top it off with 16 more bags.
Barefoots are still going for $ 235/ ton locally
Yeah, after I got them I saw 2 types of bags on the internet and it got me thinking which was the older bag.Well I will cross my fingers and hope they work well. I was hesitant since the brand I used last year worked so good but the TC's are priced good. Last year I used a brand by CQ called Fire Maker/$250 ton and they were great for my Quadrafire Mt. Vernon.
Just picked a ton of Somerset's up from TSC for $261.00, with the 21 bags left over from last year, I am ready...
Just got back from Home Depot and got 3 tons of Fireside Ultra (this is what we burned last year and they worked out great). Ended up being $218/ton less 10% military discount with a total heating bill for the whole house (Mid October through April) $588.60. On an even better note I had $75 worth of gift cards and $250 from selling an old lawn mower, $263 for heat this year, WOOOHOOO!
Pellets here just came in not too long ago. We ordered a ton only because we don't have room for any more than that for storage. This is my first experience with a pellet stove and our first year in a very old and drafty house so it might be an interesting winter. I have no idea how many we will be going through.
Following up with what most wise pellet burners already know - acp pellets (appling county) are less than fabulous.
Well I'm a doubter and figured its just gotta burn so I picked them up at 229/ton.
here's what I find with my stove--
Since 2006 I been burning the box store pennington's (I think thats the name) and the magnet thermo gauge on the side of the stove would get up to 500 degrees. Quite toasty.
With the acp's the best I am seeing is between 350-400.
When the stove is at its lowest setting the flame is barely visible at times and even has caused the stove to snuff out and shut off.
I see the box store now selling 'freedom' pellets for $219...I might buy a bag see how it goes.
3-tons of Juniata's delivered today - Price $230/ton
Dropped in my second ton this weekend.
1 ton Hardwood heats ($219.50)
1 ton Lignetics ($219.50)
8 bags of last years Okies $5.00 per bag
If I need more at the end of the year or we really get a cold Dec or Jan I can get another 1/2 ton as needed.
4 tons of Cleanfires, free delivery & a $25 coupon = $243.50 per ton,
They'll put em where I want em & all I gotta do is burn em!
Well, OK, I gotta clean the P43 every three weeks or so...
Answer # 1.
Got 3 tons of OHPs from Menard's last spring.
Had to use about 10 bags to finish out last year's 2 tons, so I should be OK this year.
