    Picked up a few bags to try from SMRF in Wells, Me. These burn really, really clean and hot. But the want $319 a ton for them, and I can't pay that much for pellet.

    Hardly any ash and my bricks are white. Pretty nice stuff.

    Hey Hoot.

    Sounds like a great pellet...but agree that it is too expensive.

    Really? You can get this quality at the 220 range? Damn. That's less than the local MWP soft that are nowhere close to this kind of performance.

    $291 I might do. Vermont's and Northern's are $280.

    $211. That's crazy talk for a pellet like that. Lucky guy Smoke!

    Dunno if I can even justify $291 with the other 2 at $280. But $211?

    Hmmmm, is there some fly in this ointment? >>

    You have to have bought a stove from them or be a member(don't know all the details) to get them prices. But even so the price of pellets on the west coast always seem to be cheaper than pellets over here.

    nope. your right. If your not a stove customer you pay more and you need to early buy, cost goes up during heating season.

    west coast? of lake michigan... ;lol

    Hate it. Wife asks me to paint all the time. House is finished, but she wants to change colors every year.

    It's been a good winter though and got the summer booked up till next winter. Not a glorious job, but it pays the bills.

    No bobbers in bass fishin. At least the way we fish anyway.

    No speed limits on the lake or the big river. We let it fly in between spots.
