    I just found a deal on TrueBurns... $299 + HST for a 75 count pallet - $12/pallet delivery charge.

    Only heard a couple of people comment about these on here, but they sound a lot better than the comfy cozy - think I might pick up 2 pallets.

    I agree with Tim on the Comfy Cozy's. I tried them compared to Eastern Embers. There is no comparison, at least in my stove. The Shaw Eastern Embers are much hotter and burn much cleaner. Until someone in this area can come up with something better my money will be spent on the Eastern Embers.

    Maybe a bunch of us should get together and buy the Enlinga plant in Musquodoboit......
    I find their closing very curious. I was under the impression that there was a fairly large demand for pellets in Europe (where most of theirs were sold), as well as at home.

    Thats in Moncton? A landscaping place....the name escapes me. Last years pellets but should still be fine.I was a Shaw fan and their pellets are hot but the truburns are even hotter,enough that the stove can run 24/7 on the first setting and the house is warm when you get up in the morning....very pleasurable. That delivery charge is very good!

    Fellow Maritimers: is anyone aware of Green Team pellets being sold in Nova Scotia? If so, where are they being sold?

    I saw a truck with a load of Green Team pellets in the back and was wondering if there is a new distributor - or perhaps they were on their way back from the USA, but thought I'd put this out there!

    I have to agree with everyone on the Eastern Ambers. Great pellet each and every year. I ordered mine here on PEI from Metro Building Supplies at $5.49. I also tried the Comy Cozy and was not a fan at all.

    I do have a question? Where are you getting corn here on PEI. Would like to find more info on burning that. Do you mix it with the wood pellets?

    Three pallets of Eastern Ambers in the basement and my first winter with the M55 steel. Last year I upgraded from the Enviro EF3. I did have a few months of the M55 but it was at the end of the winter so I never really got to test it out. Still need to get a thermostat as well but getting the itch to get burning!! lol

    Jimmy,
    Where did you buy your M55? Did you sell or trade your Enviro EF3 or trade it? I am interested in the Enviro M55 as well and would be interested in your opinion on it when you get to use it some more.

    Hi

    I was having some problems with the Ef3. The dealer took it back and gave me credit towards the M55. I bought the steel version as there were problems with the cast version last winter. We loved the M55 though. Nice intense heat and quiet. Wish it did put out some more air though but I have read on this form there is a new turbo blower being released which might cure that problem.

    Hoping to have good luck with this stove as I opted for this one from all the reviews I had read.

    Good luck

    kobalt I just picked up a few bags of pellets from Walmart for the $4.67 price. The brand is Trebio and I will update on their performance in a few days.

    I picked up some from Walmart - Granulco was the brand at $4.67 per bag.

    They burned at least as well as Eastern Embers, with maybe a little less ash so I was very happy with them.

    You have to call around. The last few bags I tracked down were at the Mumford Road location.

    Best bet: go to the store and go directly to customer service. Ask if they have wood pellets and in which department they are stored, because they seem to move them around - sometimes in seasonal, sometimes in hardware, or just out in the warehouse.

    I picked 10 bags up yesterday at the Wal Mart in Moncton. The pallet was just inside the door next to where the carts are.

    rbchimp I picked my Walmart Pellets up in Saint John and they were also just as you go into the store to the left. Seemed an odd place to have them and they are in a semi clear bag which makes it even more difficult to see if you werent looking for them.

    I found some of these today, same price in Eastern Ontario at the local Independent Co-Op/Rona store.

    I did a search and hardly a mention of them on here. Just you guys out east.

    They look very dark, with lots of really dark specs. I'm thinking there's probably a lot of bark and stuff in them... I expect higher ash than the Cubex or LG's, but we'll see.

    Dunno what kind of stove you have, but did you have any problems with their length? They look a little bit on the long side... I'm hoping my stove will just crunch them up as it sees fit but these will be the longest pellets I've used.

    Your description is pretty much spot on.

    I've noticed that there are longer (over 1") pellets in nearly every bag, and not a small amount of them. So far, my Harman chews them up with no issues.

    As far as ash is concerned, my experience is that they are better than Eastern Embers and far better than Enligna. That may not mean much if you've never burned those, but I would characterized the ash level as low or even very low. I'd be curious to know how you make out with the Granulco pellets - or anyone else for that matter.

    So far, I'm very happy with them and the price is as good as it gets around here. I can't recall seeing wood pellets for less than $5 per bag after mid-2007.

    Burned some last year, they were okay. Got 2 tons beginning of november. Find they don't have as much heat as energex, or canwicks. They were the cheapest at 4.49 at rona. Waiting to see if lowes has a sale in december. Got surefires for 3.00 last year.
