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.
