    Kents just dropped the price of the Comfy Cozy brand down to $4.99 a bag, I threw 30 bags on the back of my truck as I was passing through St. Stephen coming back from the States....they may not be the best brand but my stove seems to burn them okay and what the heck they are all going up in smoke anyway....

    Has anyone seen these pellets being sold in any of your local stores? These bags are packaged in 33 lbs bags and they claim that you get the same burn as the 40 lbs bags because of new technology that they are using to produce these pellets???...

    I would also be very interested to read about their "new technology".

    Sounds like you could get TrulyBurned if you take that statement at face value.

    Where is BTU when we need him?? Must be sleeping late . . . .Oh, wait . . . .He is on Arizona time . . . .

    "Torification" sounds like something one would do to earn 5 to 10 ( years) in a maximum security correctional facility.

    The guy that did the grass pellets for imacman, schoondog and myself. Does it with his left over grass pellets and I think he calls it green coal? I have a hard enough time with pellets to even try to get into that! But they use the pellets in gardens once torified.

    Looking at the link it states ash level less than 5%, I sure hope they meant less then .5%

    If you do burn some please let us know how they go. I have gotten some nice pellets from up north!

    There is "no claim" made by this company in print or by word of mouth from them that smaller 15 kilogram bags (33 pounds) equals the same output as a 40 pound bag. Yes the bags are smaller,but easier to handle....thats all. I just bought some today,have used them before last year,they give good heat and are as good as any premium pellet out there. At $4.50 a bag presently,they rank in price when you figure it out,being in the ballpark of the others,give or take a little. The email address of the company is on the bag...if anyone wants to verify what I say,I will provide it.

    They have posted on Kijiji in the Fredericton area and I quote

    " TRUEBURN PREMIUM WOOD PELLETS"


    "Trueburn Premium Wood Pellets 15kg/33lb bags. 70% Hardwood 30% Softwood The new 33lb bags burn almost as long as the 40lb bags.

    For pricing Call Canadian Lumber Company Ltd at 453-9126"


    So it may not be a direct claim but they sure were pointing in that direction

    Sounds like "Canadian Lumber Company Ltd" was the one making that claim, Not the Pellet manu.

    How many bags do you get in a ton?

    still sounds like snake oil claim to sell their pellets. if same price as 40lb bag and heat output not proven i would pass. they would have to burn hotter than lignetics for me to buy them.

    The persons/people making the claim are NOT the manufacturers. The pellet mill is in Hillsborough Albert County....a long ways from Fredericton. Kijiji is a place where you may get what you pay for...and you might not.That should be a given.

    One would hope 61, otherwise it's false advertising.

    As for the statement "The new 33lb bags burn almost as long as the 40lb bags".....yes, that would be absolutely true. :roll:

    unless of course they mean "metric ton", the plot thickens.

    Wal-mart in Moncton selling pellets from Winnipeg I think it was for 5.97 or something like that a bag. They sold pellets last year as well and I told them several times to bring them in but I was hoping they would bring some competition in the prices...but not at 6 bucks a bag.

    I used an on-line BTU comparison tool a few years ago and determined that at $5.50 per bag, oil was the more economical choice over pellets.

    I hate to say that for all of the environmental reasons we all know, but you have to draw the line at some point. I've got three pallets out in the shed (spring deal at $4.50 per bag), but once those are gone I'm back on oil unless the Canadian prices come down.
