    Hi Jack,

    Great pellet, nice blue white flame, much less ash. The only issue I had was the size of the pellet. My stove has a STAR valve feed system. It cuts the pellets to fit into the feed. Unfortunately, I had to increase my feed rate to compensate for the larger pellet, I couldn't get the same volume into the burnpot to produce the same heat as the somersets. The overall heat output increased 8 degrees but, the bag of pellets burned through 6 hours faster. The Turmans are indeed a great pellet!:) How did they work out in the Harman;ex

    I don't know if leaving a pellet under a pillow will bring on the pellet fairy but hopefully a good woody might come out of it;lol

    Cubies are freakin HOT:ZZZ. Cleaned stove last night, after a third of a bag highest output air temp to date (294), small amount of clinkering, a little more ash than the Turmans. The Okies are next, Thanks again!:)

    Hey Jack,,,did you try the Okies;? On the old smello meter I left the bag wide open, loved the pine smell throughout my living room:). In my stoves opinion this pellets the best. Low ash, heat is between 270-280 out the front, the Cubex were the hottest. The glass on the stove keeps really clean longer, no clinkering or ash deposits in the burnpot;ex. Absolutely great. How did the Cubies and Okies work for you;? Thanks again:cool:

    Haven't tried either yet. I'll try both bags this weekend.

    Are the premium pellets worth the extra money? If so, which one would you go with next winter?

    As of now, I'm going with the Okies next winter and yes!! I believe they are worth the extra cash, stove wear and tear do to ash makes it worth it:)
