    Finally found a place in MA that sells Okanagan. 250/ ton a good price? Haven't tried them yet so will probably get 10 bags to start.

    If it's the clear bag w black/red graphics I'd say good price. SSWP gets $300 and
    he sells em fast even at that price.

    Clear bag means you could see the fines or lack thereof. If the fines are not that bad then $250 for Okies is a great price. Care to share we these may be purchased?

    Rats, to far for my old truck to travel. It would cost me $50 in gas just to get them. Good luck and thanks for sharing.

    Ooh I see you're fairly new here. First rule of thumb, don't post
    up your source until you've secured your fuel. ;)

    I was just firing a shot across the newbies bow, the real oinkers likely have already got those Oakies he was drooling over by now.

    Rule #1 do not tell anyone where your source is before you have your supply safely in the bunker and your security system activated. Lots of pellet pigs in the world and they are down right nasty when on the trail of pellets.

    You can tell who we are by our signature lines that read:

    The reason OMV isn't posting in this thread is he's on his way up 495 towards 93 >>

    This year and Last years Okies were in a black/red/clear bag. The year before were in the white bag with the green tree on front so If you are buying the ones with the tree they have been sitting around for a while. East Coast Lumber in Hamstead N.H. has a supply of Okies in the clear black and red bag

    umm...not if they are water damaged or are the ones that smell like cat piss or puke. Been there done that, and they were in the white bag w/the green tree on it.

    My brother got a ton of these earlier this season. Had a few damaged (minor wet) bags but no real issues. This is his first year burning and has not used anything else. The damaged bags may have been from his outdoor storage, grrrrrrrr

    A real rookie mistake would have been trading in a pickup for a Prius on the same weekend as getting the stove ==c

    That's a mistake punishable by death.....or at least revocation of your man card.

    I bought some of those it was a great price and the
    heat was good but the smell wasn't pretty!!
    Must of come from the Cat Pee Tree?
    Female pellet pigs like stuff to smell *purty.*
    Too bad they couldn't smell like my Pumpkin Spice Yankee Candle.
    I am burning the black / red and clear bag (platinum) this year. Cost more but they don't smell and I think they provide great heat and are cleaner burning.They work great in my stove.
    Glass gets a little dirtier than I would like but clean up seems easier.
    Wish they would put a date on those bags!
