    I tried Narragansett brand pellets this year in my Enviro Empress stove with excellent results. Very little ash and very hot burn. They are an 80/20 hardwood/softwood blend made in Rumford R.I. The previous 2 years I tried the L.G. brand(absolutely terrible-no heat with lots of ash) Pinnacle ,Beaver Creek,none compare to the heat and clean burn of the Narragansett pellets. A tip for Empress stove owners: When you clean the burn pot out try placing a small handful of pellets in it to pre-load it before you start the stove. This gets the stove to fire sooner and slows down the buildup in the burn pot.

    No I do not work for Narragansett Pellets. I posted the message because I spent a significant amount of money on 4 tons of L.G. brand pellets last year and had nothing but problems with them.A friend of mine with an Empress stove had the same issues with the 3 tons of L.G's he purchased. I was hoping to save someone else from the same fate. I thought that the idea behind this forum was to share info to help out our fellow pellet stove owners?

    Thanks for the tip. I've seen the Narragansett pellets around, but haven't tried them yet. I was waiting for someone to write something about them.

    I'll try a few bags and see how they do.

    Thanks for the tip. I have not tried them out as they are fairly new
    to the pellet market and they seem to be more expensive than other
    well known brands that are available in my area.
    If their prices become more competitive with the other brands, I might
    try a few bags out.

    everyone of your post brought up Narragansett pelletes. I have burned them as well and was not quite as impressed with them as you where. so i was just wondering if you maybe giving us an unbiased report or not.

    When I first fired up my stove this year (Thanksgiving) I bought 3 bags of Narragansett's and 3 bags of New England's. The 'Gansett's were a little cheaper. Around $220/ton vs. $245/ton.

    They burned fine but seemed to have a little more ash than the NEWP. They may have been a little hotter. I went with the NEWP based on what everyone else was saying about them at the time. I've been real happy with the New England's. Mine come from the Jaffery, NH plant and I think they are all hardwood. Last price was $265/ton. See them for $279 lately.

    I would be willing to try the 'Gansett's again when the opportunity arrives.

    I have a empress insert, burned Barefoot pellets with the first ton. I bought a ton of new england and am not to happy. no heat and to much ash and build up in the burn pot. any sugestions to get a leaner burn. stove is on high going through about 2 bags a day. Need some advice on the enviro and possibly a good pellet.

    Kinda high for NE Premiums I think.
    The gas station down the street is selling them for 249 a ton.
    I got them cheaper than that in October.
