I picked up a few bags of North American and Hearthsides. So far this year I've been burning just Fireside Ultras and DryCreek. I'm quite shocked how stinky the North American's are. I mean smell - they really stink. Maybe this should be a new thread - best smelling pellets or something. While I'm at it I may as well say the Hearthsides are the nicest smelling I've come across so far. How do they burn ? No idea...if they burn its pretty good to me. Maybe JT can add a column to his xls sheets on smell factor. But do we trust him to add that oh so important bit of data ?
