    When I unloaded my ton of North Americans - from the driveway - thru the window - and restacked again in my dining room before finally going under the stairwell - they all fell over - I watched it happen. It truly was like watching a train wreck in slow motion. Interestingly - it looks eerily like the same pellets in your pic.

    That's hilarious...The leaning tower of pellets!!

    P.S. I promise not to tell your wife, But how do you plan on explaining the pellet bag indentaions in the hood! I would just tell my wife that my buddy Moose was over and he sat on the hood (He said he was sorry)!

    I'm laughin with ya! My first atempt at stuffin more than I should have in the baseemt ended the same way. Luckily they only hit the floor. Several bags broke open, But I swept em all up and tossed em in the stove. So nothing lost.

    I have since learned to alternate them. just like they are stacked from the mill. I can now stackem 14 rows high and no tip overs(yet anyway).

    i kind of flatten each bag a bit as i stack.
    just to take out the doming they get through their middles.
    i just place my palm flat on the center and give it few kind of shakes to move the pellets out to the corners a bit.

    ha! i had to go downstairs and count after reading jtake's post.
    yep 14 high. that's to the ceiling of my basement.

    Make them all overlap, not side by side stacks.
