    The local Ace Hardware is doing a sale on Lignetics Premium Hardwood Pellets next weekend. The price seemed pretty decent. How are these pellets? Anything else I should be looking for here in MA?

    Most people like the lignetics depending on which one...not sure which is preferred. What is the price per ton?

    They were saying $239 for the 31st and 1st only. I guess they normally have them for $269

    That is a pretty descent price for those. The big box stores are also a good option depending on what they have. Are there any pellet dealers near you?

    Green label ligs are nice. Check the local boxstore for Pres-to-logs. They are made by lignetics and just as good IMHO.


    Green(lettered) label was prefered over the blue when ligs was having fiber issues. This may have changed since they have improved quality.

    There are a few pellet dealers. Most of them seem to be selling pellets between $280-$300 for various brands

    My experience with them has been the heat output was OK but hard to find anything dustier and producing more ash than when burning Lignetics, blue OR green bag lettering. I`m done with them as long as something better is available. I`ll gladly pay the premium for something else..

    I wonder sometimes if the dust isn't caused by over handling. I've seen people throwing the bags into trucks like it's cord wood.

    Just got home from pulling the trigger at my local Ace on the Ligs....$220 after a $5 coupon. The new Ligs look smaller and a bit darker than the PTL's I have leftover from last year. Hope I didn't make a mistake buying these.

    In general, color usually doesn't have a big effect on heat output. I burned the green letter last yr. , both the 100% hardwood and the blend, and liked them both.

    I love the PTL's from last year...if the Ligs burn anywhere close or better than those, I'll be very happy....The PTL's from a few years ago (very dark in color) were very ashy in my old PDVC...not the case from last years batch.

    I burned 2.5 tons of green ligs last year. They had descent heat but lots of dust in the bag. Average fines in the combustion chamber. They go for 235 a ton here and barefoots at 255 make the ligs a poor buy for me. I was able to get more heat out of the barefoot and the less ash and a near dust free bag makes the up charge well worth it.
