    Bought about 3/4 ton waiting for my 3 ton delivery, now down to a full stove and a bag and a half. Crappy OBECKS supposedly premium pellets. Lots of clinkers, never, ever had to scrape the pot 2-3 times per day until these. Showed up wrapped, my receipt says LG Pellets. Gotta watch out for that! I'm burning oil now, it appears to be cheaper than buying pellets, but, I miss the 72 degrees!

    Started with 6 tons and picked up 2 tons of Barefoot recently for $250 per ton.... $250 was too much to resist. Lets say I had 8 tons for the season and now I have 2 tons and 40 bags left as of today.....

    Started with 4 tons, only 22 bags left.
    I don't think this is going to last until the end of season.

    Had bought 6 tons, and ran out about 2 weeks ago. Went out and bought 40 more bags, have about 22 bags left now, hopefully that takes me until it warms up.

    Purchased 2.5 tons last season, mostly Green Team and down to my last 25 bags.... Think I will need another dozen to get me into mid April.

    We've used 2.5 tons, still have a few tons left. After these are gone, I'm probably going to exit the pellet game. Been burning pellets for 9 years now, pellet price volatility has become too excessive for me over the last several years so I'm going to stick to just wood going forward.

    12 bags left from the third 60 bag pallet... it's been a cold winter here and, with me being home since Jan 15th, I used more pellets than my too-cheap-to-turn-up-the stove wife of mine would have if I had been on the road working.

    I'll heat until mid-April... with sun being high in the sky I have my St Croix idling on #1 during the day... #3 in the evening and #2 overnight.

    They are saying below zero here later in the week... on top of the 8" of snow yesterday...

    Well, at least eveyone is still counting how many bags they have left and we are not down to counting actual pellets.

    I have a full hopper 60 lbs., (5) - 40 lb. bags, and 16 pellets. :cheese:


    PS... I am willing to sell the 16 pellets to anyone who has run out.

    Start with 3 tons and have 41 bags left.

    Should easily take me through the end of the season but with this weather you never know.

    We'll see how popular wood will be when the Nazi's in Washington start ramming carbon credits with hefty tax bills up everyone's Al Gore hole. Don't be so fast to exit the game. With the credit on the stoves and those big energy taxes looming, this will create a
    steady market for pellets. I am confident the cost of pellets with rise, but so will the oil our towel head friends aren't in any hurry to drill. In the next five years, we will be literally paying a hefty price for all our fuels and the stupidity of the Socialists in power.

    Buying by the bag this season due to a parked pickup and inconsistent cashflow. About 1.5 tons burned so far, the last bag is in the stove now.

    I'll have to pick up some more tomorrow, as freezing nights are forecast for the rest of the week.

    Had four tons, have one ton and two bags left. Now that it is getting warmer and oil is 1.99, I'm going to save the last ton for next year.
