    What else you got on the test list? And what the heck happened to the test thread and getting us a sticky for posting? I'd like to see what your stuff posted where we can go look at it!

    I have only 3 brands so far. The mills haven't sent me anything(cheaped out). Woodpellet reviews loads of them.I guess they like his reviews better? I only have what I could round up locally. Lack of time and cash(bought too many new toys) has nicked me this season. Not to mention I can't get in the mode this year. I'd rather be bass fishing to tell you the whole truth!

    I had to look at each photo twice to believe what I was seeing! Absolutely unacceptable!

    From the pics in Salty's first post, I have to say there's more than just a 'fines' issue,.... those pellets look to have either got wet,.. (swelling and falling apart),... or a more likely scenario is improper binder/dust mixture.

    This is all I have come across this year. If I find some others I will test them next spring. I have some stuff from last year that I am not sure I still have. My computer decided to not to turn on one day and I may have lost all that stuff. Is there a spot for me to post that chart? If so I would gladly do it. There was some talk about starting a pellet sticky but that idea has appeared to have died down

    Again mine look the same and I was alarmed also, but they still burn awesome!

    I'm only glad I only got half a ton, I will take a picture of old batch next to the new.

    The sad thing is when we are paying for the best we think we will have the greatest pellet, my cubex last year were awful, I was the unlucky one who got the bad batch, but they stand by there product and actual called me, and my dealer switched a Ton out for a new batch.

    You could post you chart in the pellet sticky link section for now(see link).

    http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/pellet-forum-sticky-links.52718/

    I tried looking for the thread. Its way back somewhere. Having a seperate tab on top would be cool. If the mods agree?
