    need to pull the trigger on one of these pellets within the next 24 hours - since I just canceled my spring pre-order as these are a good $200 less then my spring order...

    You might see several opinions on this. IMHO I'll give an edge to Greene Team, But only because I haven't tried Cheat River(yet!). But you could also try spliting the order up with a ton of each? Even if its only 1 ton your getting they will let you buy by the bag for the same price. No ton discount AFAIK!

    Just purchased 3 tons of Green Supreme's at Lowes in Hooksett, NH. Manchester Lowes was out and had a backlog of orders when I checked last night so I wasn't too confident about getting some today.

    Seems like a lot of the Lowes around here have Green Supremes but have a backlog of Greene Teams. I have been trying to track down some GT's for a few weeks. So far I have 6 different brands to try....
    Stove Chow
    MWP Blend
    MWP Softwood
    Maine's Choice
    Corinth
    Green Supreme

    It seems every lowes around me (Bristol CT) only has North American pellets which I'm not the biggest fan of. Lowes in southington has about 30-40 ton of N. American. I wish I could find Somersets @ Lowes like last year! Home depot has Stove chow which I plan to grab a ton of, but I have a gift card for lowes and plan on grabbing a ton from them. Lowes here had green supreme but sold what they had and repaced it with more North American. Whats the deal with all the lowes around here buying all North American pellets?

    Picked up the two tons yesterday and price did not change as of yesterday. They still had at least 14 tons of GT's but they are all stored outside, you need to look them over good if you take a full pallet without unwrapping it there. There are 10 tons sitting by the entrance to the store and the rest is in the garden area with no roof over them as well.

    when I asked what their policy was on bad pellet bags, they stated that I could bring them back and exchange them for a good bag. Hopefully they will hold to that. because I'm having them delivered, and they wouldn't budge on me picking that pallets I wanted.

    Called around several stores today. Had to laugh,
    one guy from a Lowes told me he had two brands - Green Machines
    and Greene Team. I said "Green machines huh?". He said YUP!
    I said cool I'll be over there in the morning see ya then.

    Let us now how those "new"-------- “Green machines" burn. Hehe! :)

    Green machines like weedwackers and leave blowers????? John Deere makes them AFAIK.

    If those Green Machines are made by JD they should be good but if they are WeedEater brand made by Poulan then I would just try a bag or two first. :)

    You sure they weren't burning them in the back room and started seeing different names on the bag.

    Stopped by my local Lowes and picked up 5 bags of the Cheat River pellets. I did some internet research and saw some indication that Cheat River is somehow related to Appalachian Hardwood Manufacturers, Inc., and uses their prodocution by-product. No idea how accurate that information is.

    J/T - Let me know if you want me to mail you a bag, how and where.

    Lowes in Hornell, NY selling Green Supreme's and North American Wood Pellets. Both are at 197.00 a ton currently. However it looks like the regular price will be 197.00 ton for North American's and 239.50 for Green Supreme's. I bought a couple bags of each as I want to see how they burn for my Harman P 43. Interestingly to me this is quite a bit cheaper than I paid for my other six tons I bought in the Spring. (Allegheny's and Clear Choice)

    Shoot me a PM if you want them. No big deal. I have gained WAY more from this site in both knowledge and enjoyment than I would spend. :)

    Giving a little back.

    It was almost $40 per bag to ship them via UPS when I sent the bags of NEWP to him a couple years ago. I have some Eden pellets for him and I'm tempted to break them down into smaller storage bags and use the Postal Services flat rate boxes. They say up to 70 lbs per box.

    Rumor has it that Lowes is going to get Greene Teams in in the next couple weeks. But then again, that's what they have been telling me for about a month now. I have heard great things about them but am hesitant about buying a ton or two without trying them. Anyone have experience with Greene Teams in a P61A?

    Don't have any experience in using them in a P61A but just had my first experience, last week, stacking 66 bags of them into the house and the smell/odor it let out the first couple of nights gave me heartburn, something that the TC's I used last year did not. Wonder if it was because they were sealed for a long time with the plastics and kept moisture in there. I had to shut down the A/C and open all windows. The weather has gotten slightly cooler since then and windows have been kept open so smell is better now just hope when it gets cold enough to close them the smell don't come back.

    Last year I only burned a couple bags and didn't get a chance to check ash levels.

    Yes I have burned them and I would just reverse the order as far as heat goes. Ash was pretty close. Natures own is a sister pellet to stove chow. North American is a sister pellet to Curran. Maine Choice might be a bit better than what I tried. They have a new process.

    All would do fine in your stove. Of the 3 only complaint was that North American had a waxy smell to them. But burned fine.
