    Great heat and low ash. 2 weeks ago I bought 6 bags, they said they had 25 ton in inventory. Bought 6 bags last night, they only have 4 tons left. At 209 a ton I'd love to buy them out for next year but I retired last Friday, so I have to watch my cash flow till the retirement checks come in. My 25-EP loves those pellets.

    Man, I bought 5 bags over the weekend and they are LOADED with ash but the heat is good. These and the GAP's I burned earlier in the season have very similar ash content...LOTS OF IT!

    I just finished burning 2 tons of cheat river pellets. I really liked the heat they put out, but they did have more ash then most other pellets I've burned. Not a big deal if price is right which it was for me, just had to empty ash pan more than normal, and clean the stove pipe sooner.

    I've been using them on and off. Got them from TSC. .Just got some more a week ago to see if different and they seemed the same as what I got last fall.. Heat OK, more than normal ash, but no clinkers like with PA's..I'd get them again...

    Just bought a ton from Lowes for $188 picked up. Great heat so far, just as ashy as my pres-to-logs and stove chows. They seem to like to build those Harman ash "wings" that hang off the end sides of the burnpot. I can barely make it a week without the ash pan filling up.

    Out of all the box store brands I have found this year they burnt the best, very ashy but worth the price. I wanted to get another ton but pellet season is over in my area.

    I live in the Northeast (Pennsylvania, Pocono Mts). I bought a 25-EP from AM/FM in October, great stove for the price.
