    Lowes in Plainville, CT has Inferno pellets today. $4.18/bag

    They had about 800 bags left when I left there 2 hours ago. They were moving pretty quickly.

    Glosta this Jeep has coils no leafs. Got 20 more bags home just now..
    Had to deal with major cluster $%^&%$# traffic.
    Yeah only Maine's Choice, Nations Choice, and Currans down here.
    I paid for what they had left of these Greene Teams and I'm shlepping
    back and forth with 20 bags per trip.

    Just grabbed 15 bags of something called North American Pellets at the Lowes on the Berlin Turnpike in CT. $4.18 a bag. AFTER i had paid and started loading my van (with my sleeping babies in it) they told me they had some other brand. I looked and they were Infernos. I've not used either, so this is a bit of a gamble. THey seemed to have a lot, but i only went to the contractor entrance so i could leave my kids in their seats!

    Two different times a couple of weeks ago I brought a ton home from HD in my Suburban. Smoothest ride I have ever had in that truck. And the 454 just loafed up the hill. Even on that second trip with a ton inside and one on the trailer behind.

    Now paying for the gas... >:-(

    BB,

    You do know that buying 3 tons and self hauling with your gas hog makes you a pellet pig don't ya?

    Welcome to the pellet pig club. :)

    Xena - Nice haul! Green Teams are a hot commodity these days. Great stash for next year.

    I'm building my stash for next year as well. I just don't think you'll see $178 or even $209 per ton next year at the box stores, so I'm loading the pipeline this year:

    2010-2011 Burn Season Stash:
    46 Bags of Oakies (Clear Bags from last year's product run)
    39 Bags of Stove Chow
    15 Bags of Green Team

    Two Ton's will get me through the entire year, but I'll grab more pellets if the price is right.....oink...oink....

    Two tons usually will get me close to through a heating season too
    but this year looks like we'll burn three. Have 40 more bags
    loaded in the sunroom (not pictured), and still have to go shlep a couple more
    hauls of what I bought. Pita but worth it in the end.

    I'm able to get 25 bags in my Ford Taurus. The 2010 edition is pretty large. Promise to take a picture if I decide on another 25 bags, if I can scrounge Green Team or Stove Chow.

    That will give me 3 1/2 tons for next season! Glad I bought ahead.

    :ahhh:

    Yeah. Went to buy a half ton or so and lost what little of my wore out old mind is left. :red: In the last 30 years I haven't paid for anything for fuel to heat this joint. Well, up until now.

    For redemption after I got through I cut down a dead red oak and bucked it.

    Glosta and you north of Boston guys,

    Lowes Seabrook got 22 ton of GT yesterday late afternoon. I was on their doorstep an hour ago and bought 2 tons. There were just 7 tons left when I pulled out. I wouldn't expect them to last the day so if you can pull the trigger quickly.....you just pull up to the lumber entrance on the far right of the store, they are right there. Good luck.

    BTW, GT corportate says they are shipping another load to Seabrook on the 10th of March.

    Just picked up 2 ton Greene Team at the Bedford, NH Lowes for $209/ton. They still have at least 4 ton more and are expecting 22 ton more. Time to stock up!

    Costly indeed!

    Why is it completely acceptable to be asked "Are you buying more pellets? Don't you think you have enough"?

    But completely unacceptable to ask "Are you buying more shoes? Don't you think you have enough"?

    My wife likes warm, She agrees until the basement is full(a bit more than 5.4 tons). As long as the stove is burning its never full. Almost ready for just one more ton! :) I know I know, I said that last month. Hehe :)

    Seriously!
    With the fear of pellet prices rising to what we had in 07/08! She understands. Stash them when you can afford them and keep um full. Now when the prices get out of hand, That's a whole other story.
