They sell these pellets at the box stores under another name.....

Yep.. None other than Green Supreme (AKA- NEWP)
Some love them. Some hate them. Thats any pellet...
There is a recent post about someone hating Somersets (Summersets). Thats just preposterous
I've burned a few tons of new england(the ones in the picture). The dealer I bought my stove from last year sold them along w/ a few other bands, so I bought a couple tons from him. They said they sold brands that performed well w/ their stoves. No point selling a pellet brand if the auger had issues or they were too large, etc.
For the current season I bought two tons of new england and one ton of cubex from another dealer. I actually think the NE's burned better than the cubex, but then I have read some comments on the cubex quality not being as good this year vs. years prior. Who knows.
My stove seems to like them. I like the house now at a warm 65 and these deliver even on the coldest days. I don't even have to run the stove on the highest feed rate/fan.
I think it's all about what works best for you.
They put out enough heat for my cat to toast his junk, which is always a plus.
no wonder they do well for you lol
but seriously how can you call 65 warm? if i could stand 65 a bag could last me 3 days
I grew up w/ 65 degrees in the winter. When oil was our only heat(pre stove) we kept it at 60.
I work in data centers. I've grown very sensitive to heat. During the summer I hibernate in the house, AC at 67 or 68.
Imfigured that contest was a scam, At least somebody always won some loser fuel
Well my mind is made up i WILL NOT be buying them or will NEVER BUY MWP Softies Again !
Is that Mr Warm ?
I must ask, from the wording of the first post is the OP a copywriter.
No, just a dude who lives in Lebanon, NH
do you work in Jaffery?
I burn them (in the form of Green Suprems) and am happy with them for fall & spring. I think as you try other brands you might change your opinion about them "being the best". IMO can I suggest trying Vermonts, some dealers here on the coast sell NEWP for $265/ ton, if you can get Vermonts for a little more I think you will be pleased on the cold nights.
Just my 2 cents enjoy burning.
Was that Inferno or Green Supreme?
My 1st 2 tons were NEWP, Never again....Those things could knock the stink off of a sh!t wagon
I have pretty much the same stove and the Green Supremes (same as NEWP I believe) burn very hot but are dirtier than the LaCretes I also have!! Go figure?
I cry a little on the inside when I see people paying $260 to $275 for NEWP when they can go to Lowes, use a coupon and get them for $188 as Green Supremes. Especially since they are really only worth about $150 a ton IMHO.
I have to say this year's NEWP rebagged as Green Supreme at HD at about $209 a ton aren't bad. I have them burning in both of my stoves; a Lopi Leyden and a Harman Accentra. I have good heat output and decent amount of ash to clean, more in the Lopi than the Harman, but they seem to work well. In the past I have burned Cubex and Turman's, eh? No huge differnce for me for the price paid.
I won a ton of NEWP two years ago. They were middle of the road pellet, heat was ok, ash was a little much but the price was right. Currently I am trying to burn off the rest of my Energex American so I can use some better pellets I have next. My insert doesn't have alot of room for ash, so I am kinda of partial to low ash pellets. Hamers have been the best performer in that regard.
No I dont work in Jaffery. I just bought 20 bags of pellets and have had nice burn and heat.
I tried some Vermont pellets early in the season. They were decent but for some reason this has been my best yet. After reading the good, bad and ugly on this post I'm guessing that pellets are like anything else, pure preference. Dang people are opinionated and brutal. They are pellets people!
don't let em get to you geppapa . they feel that their preferences apply to every one . i won't even bother to tell them .... naa not going to bother
I'm just playing
It'a the same with most pellets. Take MWP's. Some people like them some people think they're junk. Personnaly I don't have a problem burning them, especially at $177/ton.
Yeah. But Pellets are NOT created Equally.
Pellets are based on Fiber and Density... Which means every brand is different.
And a lot of us measure the output temps out of our stoves (I do with a K type thermocouple) and Green Supremes are at the far end (lower) of the scale. I haven't burned any this year. Its based solely on last seasons Green Supremes.
They burned clean... But on the low end (one of the lowest temps i have had) of the temp scale.
Every stove, install, and user is different. All results will vary.
SUB where on earth did you get them for that price??
