Around here I can get Michagan pellets (with some trouble) But the ones locally are DryCreek and Instant Heat. Not sure what brands are at Home Depot/ Lowes and if they started getting good pellets- never bought their stuff. Anyhow, Tractor supply sells the Instant Heat and some feed stores sell the DryCreek. Any signifigance between the "new" DryCreek companys product or Instant Heat? Are they both reasonably OK? I do like the Michagan pellets but they are not easily obtainable, as a contractor delivers them and I typically would order more than 1 ton if I had him deliver. Sooooooo... If I go and pick up a ton by myself- because I need to stay local, what brands might be good? It seems that the good brands are getting less common in my area, unless I go through a greater hassle to get them. Im not that fussy about the pellets either....but when you see a lot of really bad reviews on the Home depot/ Lowes brands...I've so far avoided them Thank you.
