    I been swearing by them for 3 years now.
    Love'em
    But they have become expensive over the years.
    Used to be a cheaper alternative to Okies.
    Now....not so cheap.
    Great pellet.

    They are going to get more expensive when OMV buys the factory and moves it into his basement!!

    Dumb question:
    How do pellets "burn hotter" if your stove is run by a thermostat. Does that mean they produce more heat with less pellets being burned, and a bag lasts longer?

    3 1/2 on my feed rate. Last season when I was burning them they made my glass black. No other pellet did that to my stove. Great heat and low ash though.

    Ok, based on the reviews I bought six bags today. I got them at Home and Hearth in Hampton Falls, NH. They get $279 a ton, $20 local delivery. I am impressed! On the lowest setting, I have been seeing 130 degrees from my heat exchanger. I cleaned the stove, dropped in a bag of the Vermonts and saw 139 to 140 degrees. I've been burning since about 4 and the glass is nice and clean.

    Oh, no fines in the bag either!
