    Hotter air rises. Once it cools it doesn't rise and actually starts dropping. So hotter air can rise farther as it takes more to cool it to the point it turns back toward the stove. Think hot air balloon, To keep it up in the air, You need to keep heating the air. When you want to drop you let it cool.

    I picked up 27 bags a few days ago from local big box store for $$4.99 CDN. They are very fregrant. Heat is comparable to my 3 year old Cubex Hardwoods if not better. They are the only pellet I have successfully been able to burn on Super low (1.5 second shot) with my enviro mini. ...... The down side is that they are the hardest pellet to light with 400 Watt ignighter. They left a huge rock like clinker in the shape of my burn pot liner after 18hours. I have temporarily switched back to the cubex's here because it is extreemely cold out, and haven't time to experiment further.

    first picture is Trebio
    second is Cubex hardwoods on the left - Trebio on the right.
    and third are Trebio with penny for scale comparison.

    Here is the Trebio website. : http://www.trebio.ca/

    I ALSO HAD A ROCK LIKE ASH IN MY BURN POT. I tried to break it and could not believe how hard it was. When there burning they seem ok and HOT. Going to do more research myself.

    I believe they would work excellent in a multifuel stove like the M55 which has a stir device. This would aid in keeping that clinker under control...... (Currently kicking myself for cheaping out and buying the used Mini instead of the M55.)

    Seems ok if I just scoop them out a little more often. I think its still worth the 150 a ton. Funny cause the heat seems really good.

    I believe (but have not proven) that they burn so slow that at higher feed rates they simply smother themselves. Hence the clinker. Maybe a good pellet for shoulder seasons. I burn the mini pretty hard here because I use it as the primary heat source.

    Does your mini have the controller with feed trim?

    No. I just upgraded burnpot and liner.... I'm still waiting for original PCB to blow but it seems to be built to last. Wait a minute... both old and new circuit boards had feed trim..

    Bummer, Dropping the trim will help. But so would an agitator. Mix them with some other pellets to help.
