    yes - read a few posts above.
    I'm interested in hearing other people's opinions as well though.

    Oh well, just cancelled my order with them. Was supposed to pick up my one ton tomorrow. Now, they say two weeks. Going down to get refund on credit card and looking elsewhere. Will not go back next year.

    Have you told them you were canceling when you were on the phone?
    What did they say the delay was?

    I remember someone telling me that they were going to be going off invoice numbers. And those that had an earlier number will be getting serviced first.

    I know I ordered mine during their open house. sounds like mnkywrnch also ordered them that day as well.

    or some folks just would like to support a local business and hope they can pull through with it.
    I could of paid slightly more and received the pellets from a local distributor, but I would prefer to support a Mfg plant that is local more then a distributor who is local.

    If it seems like this will be an on going issue next season, I do not expect to give Creative Biomass my business next season.

    I'm already borderline as it is; but I'm lucky I already received 1/2 my order.

    I'm liking them so far. They feel to be burning faster then the kinda crappy ones I had last year.

    what kind of temp output should I be seeing typically directly at the air vents?
