    How 'bout I cry for everyone who overpaid ... I shelled out $260/ton for my 6 tons at the local pellet yard. For that discount I could probably have a trucking co load & drop em off, then still save some *cry* :)

    i grabbed 2 ton as thats all i could squeeze in my truck.so far so good.burned a bag from the damaged ton over night and good heat from them.t-stat set at 68 overnight and used less than 1/2 bag.definately more ash than what im used to but at that price i have no problem with cleaning a bit more often.i have the high ash liner in my meridian which makes a huge difference and can handle these pretty well i hope.

    I have two good days into this since cleaning and it tracked the first day today with the center ash pan being 3/4 full in 24 hours. That's almost a whole hopper overnight alone which is right around a bag in itself.

    So it's not that bad...

    These things burn very hot by themselves. I did a test today with just trebios and the stove was too hot to touch on the top still. Very nice. I actually roasted myself out of the bedroom upstairs last night with the stove on 4

    How do these Canadian Softwood pellets that are on sale compare to the Green Supreme Pellets? Curious if you think they are better or the about the same. Also, what pellets would you compare them to? Also, is pellets direct letting you pay for say 2 tons and bring one ton home and unload and come back for the other? Thanks.

    And mine are wired to the CNN (chipmunk notification network) so if the cameras detect movement it alerts Chipmunk Team 6 and they come out shooting blazing arrows adorned with Okie pellets

    I haven't burn my ton yet but from what everyone is saying, they are very hot, probably hotter then the Green Supremes. I tested the GS at the beginning of the season and they are more of a shoulder pellet in my opinion. As for Pellets Direct, in the past I've lugged half a ton home at a time depending on the vehicle. They just load what I can take and I come back for the rest. They are very nice and flexible so you shouldn't have a problem. Just let them know ahead of time.

    Thanks Hotdawg and Oldmount for the reply. I think I'm gonna try to pick some up and try them out. Hope they'll have some by the time I can get there after work Thursday or Friday.

    I'll need your settings, But Might be better to ask Smoke Show. He lives with these softies in his Mt V. My guess is too much fuel.
