    Referencing another post but not pointing the hoof at anyone.

    If it is January and you are worried about your pellet supply or lack of product your Pellet Pig Status will be removed or demerit points will be applied.

    Sorry it has come to this but, "Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part".

    Yep... Plan ahead... Keep a good stockpile.
    I Brought home another ton of Somersets last week.... Didnt need them.. But the truck was being unloaded when I was there and I'm a sucker for pellets!!

    A pig is a pig for one reason. If you run out during season (a mild one at that) , then one cant be a true PIG.

    I love stock piling pellets. I even bought a few bags yesterday in Wally World just for the hell of it!

    I was once told that making a profit is not a crime.

    I've only burned about a ton. 2 more to go! I think I'll make it though. If I need more I'm not too worried about it, there's plenty of supply around here.

    First year burning pellets so I'm still not sure how much I'll go through.

    Nope, the first "empty 75 bag" stack slot is full of stuff other than pellets and the stack I'm currently working on has other stuff on top of the pellets.

    Stuff just appeared.

    I finally got things to the point I was going to stat the stove but that will wait until the I'm done hacking up cold crud. It sure has been nice and warm here (in the house) this fall. Even at this rate I likely won't come anywhere near what I used last year.

    How many tons or bags do I need to be sitting on to apply for Pellet Pig Club status? Would another ton qualify me? If that's the case, I'll pick up another ton of Barefoots tomorrow!

    Three ton before first frost. Small amounts must be self hauled large amounts can be delivered but you have to stack them.

    You need to apply and show signs of true piggishness. The pigs may ask for clarification of items on your application.

    Isn't there also a qualification that the vehicle hauling the pellets must be at least fifteen years old and have rust. I'm only remembering this from threads past. I would never list my stash to many moochers and thieves about.
