    Do what I do and just rip a pallet open at HD/Lowes and buy a few bags. Unless there's a sign on a sealed pallet saying it's already sold or "DO NOT OPEN", I rip them open at will ;)

    I don't know how a pellet manufacturer can say their wood pellets are "premium grade" or "super premium grade" unless they are meeting some sort of defined standard set forth by an independent 3rd party (such as PFI). Whether the pellet is PFI rated or not shouldn't matter, if specs are listed on the bag somewhere (i.e. ash, fines, moisture content), or the pellet claims to be PFI premium grade, then you can prove whether or not those specs are true based on your own in-home testing. If the specs are incorrect, the pellet produces more than 1% ash or are loaded with moisture, then claiming the pellet to be "premium grade" is false advertisement, and grounds to pursue a return/reimbursement from the pellet vendor and/or manufacturer.

    good prices or are they all sold out?

    Raynham, Bridgewaters, Weymouth?

    others wanna know too.

    Hi Jay. Same price at the Lowes I called but the pellets
    in stock were Infernos. For that price they can
    pour milk on em and feed em to the employees
    for breakfast. :coolgrin:

    Any information on the availability of the Pres-to-log compressed log in SE Pennsylvania?
    Looking for dealers and approx. prices for a pallet.
    What should I be looking for prior to purchase?
    Recently had a Hearthstone Clydesdale wood-burning insert installed.

    You need to put this in the correct forum (The Hearth Room)....this forum is for wood pellets/corn burning stoves......maybe a mod can move it.

    You could contact Lignetics (who make the Presto-logs) and find a dealer:

    Hello

    After pointing out to Lowe’s Corporate how close Salem NH Home Depot was to the Lowe's Salem NH store and HD's wood pellet price, Lowes had a change of heart on their price! I think it is because they really want to sell their Green Supreme New England wood pellets in the clear bags.

    Enjoy Everyone while they last!!! Now the every day low price tag really is correct!!!

    1st pic - Price on 8/3/2011—$5.97 per bag !!!

    2nd pic - Price on 8/20/2011—$3.94 per bag !!!

    Victory! How are those pellets? I only bought 20 bags because I have heard better things about mwp, stove chow and green team.

    Home Depot in Smithfield, R.I. has MWP for $197. I drove in the back to check their inventory. They have about 10 ton wrapped in green with the cabin on the bag and another 20 or so tons wrapped in white wtih the
    stove on the bag. I ordered 5 ton and off i went.

    The Home Depots around me have Maine's Choice and the Lowes have Stove Chow. Both are 3.94 per bag or 197 per ton. I like the price but I'm hesitant to buy anything in bulk since this is my first year with the P61A. Anyone have any bad experiences with any pellets in the P61A?

    It will eat whatever you feed it.

    The question comes down to how often do you want to clean it? I have had better luck in my P68 with good softwood pellets (Vermont, Okanagan), but rest assured, if you fill the hopper, it will make heat.
