    Pellet pigs don't squeal - they're too busy lazing around in front of a warm stove...you can rub their bellies though :)

    I have to agree in part here. Hoarding pellet fuel for more than one season knowing there is a production shortage is a mental disorder.

    Yea, I could have been a pellet pig also but I know there are many other folks trying to convert over from oil in my area. In my area some retailers are starting to cap sales to satisfy demands

    That is so true. Went in a local HD store last week and all they had out was some crappy Eureka brand. My wife talked to a garden guy on phone and he said they had "TONS" out back out-of-sight (Fireside and Freedom Fuel). They'll put them out when they can make the most money, basta**s.

    I buy from my local dealer or TSC only.

    4 Tons of Lignetics bought over the summer averaged out to $250 a ton. My first season with pellets but I've been burning wood for years. I figured the same rules applied, get your stash together for the season or be left out in the cold. Ever hear of the story of the Grasshopper and the Ant? The fable concerns a grasshopper who has spent the warm months singing away while the ant worked to store up food for winter. I think all you Grasshoppers should plan ahead next season.

    Pellet pig in a straight jacket according to ROF. You guys are in some crazed panic buying/hoarding trance! LOL :cheese:

    GroundHog, if you transported the pellets yourself, you're eligible for membership into the Pellet Pig Club.....aka Pellet haorders by ROF.

    And the grasshopper story reminds me of the old Kung-Fu show. ("grasshopper, when you can take the coin from my hand, you may leave").....but we have to substitute "pellet" now for coin. :lol:

    I've got one ton on my patio and I'll probably buy another in a few weeks. There's no shortage here in Wisconsin so I don't have to "stock up".

    Next spring I will do an "early buy" but I was broke this year and missed the best prices. I may even put in a bulk bin next to the house so I can save even more...

    I've got 3 ton of Penningtons, one ton NEWP, and another ton of Somersets......... all bought back in July. I should be all set for the year. I almost feel bad for people paying $330 / ton today...... if they can find them. Almost.

    can't tell if I'm actually eligible for PP membership...I'm kind of in a gray area.

    I do have 3 tons on hand...but I didn't get them all before the first frost.

    I did cash-n-carry...but only 1 of the 3 tons.

    why didn't I get them earlier? I didn't know. I'm a noob.

    Just had 3 tons of Cubex Hardwood pellets delivered for 250.00CAD/Ton.
    This is my first year so I'm not sure how long 3 tons will last...I guess there are too many factors to figure that out.

    Got 4 ton @ 199.00 a ton. First year burn. Got "Log Hard" Premium. Nothing to compare to, but
    am satisfied so far. No fines in the bags at all, and very little ash. Have bags stored in the same
    room with the pellet furnace. Warm, cozy and convenient. The wife can usually find me here.
