I found these atTSC.... The bags says there from massena ny. Could they be currans? I just loaded them into the hopper ... We'll see how they do?
UPC 0899186002102 Came up as a Curran product. Can you post a picture of the whole bag?
Says there a hardwood/softwood blend. I got them at the tsc in southwick ma. I stopped in there last week while I was working up there. I picked up a half dozen bags to try out. I'll be headed back up there on wed. Definetly going to be picking up more. Their burning much cleaner than the mwp blends I've been burning
Did a little Googling for the Stove Chow history:
-Catamount Pellets registered the Stove Chow trademark and UPC in 1993.
-Energex registered the Premier Pellet name in 1998.
-Energex got (bought?) the rights to the Stove Chow pellet brand name in 2003.
-Catamount is now out of business.
Haven't seen this mentioned in 2 or 3 years.. I popped on 4 bags from lowes .. 18$ out the door
Southern Indiana Hardwoods
Correct, that's what the bag says also.. Guess it's an independent product.. Anybody torching them?
I saw a bag at my local TCS and it was red and gold and said "Hardwood" on it UPC is 777220103001 when I run it It just comes back as "wood pellet". Any help ?
The 777220 is a common prefix for pellets made by Energex. I tried a couple bags of these TSC ones last week and liked them.
Perfect ill pick some up and give them a burn.
Energex, most likely they are the same as Stove Chow from their PA plant.
Total crap, I'd put them toe to toe with instant heatless..
Winds died down outside temp rose & lost house degrees, when these hit the burn pot.
UMainah how did you get that information?? Ths are the same pellets I mentioned in my post #148 previously in this thread. I bought a ton and really like the way they burn. Burn pretty hot and very minimal fines. I've burned stove chow before and these seem to burn better. Appreciate the info....went back to my local TSC the other day and no more left.
UPC code suffix is the same as other Energex/Premier pellets. First 6 numbers are the company code and they all have the same 777220 prefix.
FYI, New Hartford HD had Stove Chow last week.
Odd that Energex is still using the old UPC code. I just bought some and the upc is still(75325200013).
This is from Lowes
hmmmm thanks for the info J.......I am pretty well stocked for now with a couple ton of turman and almost a ton of these energex. Think I'll hold out with the hopes of something better coming along...PTL's maybe????
I have seen these at lowes a did not get any yet. Are these hard or soft? All I see on the bag is 100% wood fibers
Here is an interesting one: The re-bag says PA pellets, the upc says it's PA pellets out of pittsford, NY the same address as Bio-max company (dry creek?)
They are the hardwood version.
Bio-max is the parent company that owes both PA pellet and Dry Creek.
Cleanfire Pacific softies UPC 56630-00202
Phildo, can you provide the digit before and the digit after the bar code? (Like the 8 & 0 on the PA Pellets bag above) The 1st digit is probably 0: we already had another 056630 number from Cleanfire Pacific that gave a 'no record found'... like all the Canadian entries seem to do.
Here's a pic!
