    It will probably be hard to detect any difference visually on a bag to bag comparison..I have only noticed it when the pallets are next to each other, but I can sure tell when the stove can't burn the pellets fast enough!!

    [quote author="Liar1_97" date="1284308994"]Has anyone seen these pellets being sold in any of your local stores? These bags are Paclater 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 yep Ferguson sales on st. Peters 4.50 bag

    Update on the Granuleco EcoEnergetic from Walmart.....I am somewhat surprised but I really like these pellets...I picked up 7 bags a while ago for 4.65 ea (40 lb bags). There is almost no dust, they burn hot and clean...ash seems on par with the Eastern Embers...I really like the lack of dust when pouring them into the hopper!!...wish Walmart delivered!!

    Hate to say it, but I was in Canadian Tire on Saturday (Aug 18), and Canawicks were $6.99 per bag. Seems a bit pricey. I'm hoping for a better price or a sale pretty soon to stock up for the winter. Hope it gets better....

    I loaded up on Eastern Embers at $4.50 per 40lb bag back in the spring, but I'm on the look-out for some deals too.

    Last year, WalMart was the deal: $4.67 per bag all winter long, but finding some in stock was pretty much always an issue. $6.99 per bag is just about highway robbery if you ask me.

    A local producer has pellets made out of MDF sawdust, and his price is very reasonable. But I just don't feel comfortable burning an MDF pellet when I've been told time and again you should not burn scrap MDF. Anyone else have thoughts on this issue?

    I will be looking for 2 pallets this fall. Hopefully we can get a good price on the Eastern Embers again this fall. There are three of us looking for 3 pallets of pellets.

    I am hoping to get 2 pallets of Crabbes this year from Illsley's feed in Summerside if I can work out shipping...price on their website is showing 4.85/40lb bag

    I tried the Crabbes last year and liked them, I found they gave off a little more ash then the Shaws, however, for 4.85 per bag I would also try them this winter provided they would get them to Charlottetown. I believe that Phillips Feed carries them in Charlottetown.

    I'm pertty sure Phillips gets them from Illsleys...not sure their relationship, or what the price will be from Phillips....I usually buy some corn from them, but never saw the Crabbe pellets there.

    I spoke with my local dealer here in Halifax yesterday. After holding the line at $5.49 for the past few years, he tells me Eastern Embers will be .50 more per bag over last year - so $5.99 retail.

    I talked to lllsley's yesterday. They are going to call me with a price. Phillips in Charlottetown do carry them, although they charge a little more because of transportation. I found that there was a little more ash from the Crabbes. They were very clean with little dust and produced good heat.

    Anyone in the Charlottetown area that would like to get in on a group buy please email me. There are 4 of us now and we are buying 8 pallet loads of Eastern Embers for $5.19 per bag plus HST.
    You must take a minimum of 1 pallet load all at one time. Would like to get sales for at least 12 pallets to ensure good numbers for a good price in the future.

    Eastern Embers are $5.44 at the Rona in Cole Harbour. Probably not a bad deal given the cost of fuel. I suspect the price will be going up soon enough as a result of the much higher fuel costs.
