I am a self-confessed Turman junkie. Unfortunately I may be not able to get them this year. Still waiting to hear from CJs. If I can't, I am entertaining other brands. If I can't get my favorite, I am really looking at the money factor. If I stick with CJs I will probably go with Country Boy White Lightning. There is however a local place who have the nicest people, but lousy choices of pellets. Their price for the following is $269 which includes delivery. Ready? The choices are Instant Heat, New England, Big Heat, and Independence. The savings between this place and Cjs is about $100 if I buy 3 tons. The delivery is a killer for me for CJs. Does anyone have any experience with Big Heat or Independence? There is almost nothing on this forum on Big Heat, and a little on Independence. I still have a ton and a half of Turman to get me through the really cold part of winter.
