    I tried a few bags last year and didn't find them to be on par with many other brands I burned. They produced far more ash, and weren't as hot. It's possible I had a bad batch so hopefully another person on this forum can share their experience.

    PA Pellets are by far the worst pellet I have ever used. Low heat output and TONS of ash!

    Proof that just because it says "Premium" on the bag, it doesn't mean it actually is.

    I bought a ton last year to try them out. Big mistake!

    I agree, junk...I have a bag left from my test last year that I use as a starter. I throw a hand fully of pellets in the burn pot after I clean it and the stove takes right off. The pellets I am currently using are hard or something and it takes a while for the stove to fire by them self...

    PA pellets= junk IMO

    Sorry to hear that....a painful ($$) lesson that you must do your research before buying things like pellets that can vary so much depending on the manufacturer.
