Anybody test these? or have tried them? haven't been able to find much info on these..
Independence is the sister pellet to Potomac. Pretty much the same pellet in a different bag. Potomac burn pretty good for me, But I still recommend you try a couple of bags before a large purchase just in case.
I dig the potomacs too. would recommend.
Thanks for the info. I saw them advertised as a superhot btu "8800 btu" with minimal ash at .35% so it caught my eye and was curious if they put out the heat stated. It puts these right up there with Hamer's and Cubex as far as btu goes. May take a ride and pick up a few bags and give them a try, also may try "Curran Optimal Super Premium Softwood" listed at 8900 btu. Anyone try Currans?
I was lucky enough to burn a bag as a trial. Seemed pretty decent!
Can you share what there asking for the Independence and Curran Softwoods. Just curious.
Curran Ideal Premium Hardwood/ Softwood Blend 259/ton
Curran Optimal Super Premium Softwood 269/ton
Independence Premium Pellets 254/ton
This is what they are priced at currently but they are offering buy 3 tons or more and get delivery for 39.00. I'm sure there is a max distance involved here for that price.
I will keep an eye on these to see if a spring buy price is offered.
I am about half way through my first bag of these. I cleaned the glass and the inside of the stove before I started these. So far everything still looks clean but I haven't opened up the stove to see how much ash there is. The heat output seems better than the hardwood pellets I have been using but that it totally unscientific.
So far, so good, but I want to burn a couple more bags before I decide.
