    I believe I do meet the requirements:

    1 Pellet Stove Harman P43
    8 Tons of Premier Pellets
    Ford Ranger Pickup used to lug 33 bags at a time from Tractor Supply. Gas mileage while lugging pellets: under 20MPG

    Do I qualify? :) :lol:

    I bought 8 ton in May.

    I have a PB105 and a Breckwell Big E.

    But I had them delivered since it would have taken 16 trips with my Taurus towing a 1/2 ton trailer.

    I guess no Bronze star for me. :(

    I wouldn't call having 3 tons in the East hoarding by any stretch. Yeah, it gets cold here. I'll burn over 3 tons. By the way, don't you guys keep warm enough by holding all those cups of Starbucks coffee? :)

    ......ummmm......does just two tons of Red Oak pellets in the shed just to use as a fire starter for my Country Flame Harvester count...??? Need the pellets to start the 50,000 bushel of corn that's out in the drier bin. The pellets were cash & carry, my '96 Silverado was my workhorse of choice. Best part is that my supplier is a friend of mine ( he won't let me forget I didn't buy my stove from him ) so I get "Heads Up !" on all things pellet. So, if nothing else, I have the optimum potential to be a major player in the hoarding arena.......hahahaha !!

    Not new to wood heat; just getting too old to spend two months out of the year haulin', splittin', and stackin'...and that's just the foreplay.....

    6 ton in the basement, 3 ton in garage. Early Buy at $189 per.. Humped them all at least 3x per bag, 1 ton at a time, from 1 hour away with a Bravada. I know it's a girls car. I don't know if I Qualify as a "Pellet Pig" but I should get a Bronze Card for loading 2000 lbs. on a 1000 lbs. gross kit trailer.

    I love this club and am hoping to meet at least minimum requirements for entry. Bought 6 tons of pellets in July - delivered, as I drive a Passat. I expect my wussy car will weigh heavily against consideration for membership. But, I went ahead and bought the pellets before I even had the stove bought, as the stove I initially ordered was cancelled by the manufacturer. Didn't think it made sense to wait for the stove to be delivered, as it was already July and didn't want to chance holding off on buying pellets until the weather snapped. By then, it's obviously too late.

    I only have the one stove, but am looking at a second one.

    Guess I only get the two star membership, but I enhanced my piggishness by buying 4 tons this summer on top of the 1.5 I already had whilst knowing full-well I'll be out of country most of december and burning nat gas that month. (Delivery was free with 4 tons) In the late spring I'll buy four more tons (delivery free of charge oink, snork, snork). This should be somewhere around 6 tons in stock.

    Looking forward the First Annual Pellet Pig BBQ, ribs anyone? :coolsmile:

    Please tell me I can be a member. We bought 5 tons of pellets prior to our install (we did that ourselves) and they are stored in our front entry of the house. Had 4 more delivered for our 30th wedding anniversary gift to ourselves last week. We do have a 350 diesell and bought a ton trailer just so we could haul our own. Will download at least two of them into the house on the pallets sitting at my front door as soon as it is above 10degrees. Maybe by this friday. We have burned close to 90 bags since mid-sept and as soon as we had a dent in them we about panicked. Please, please, please, Sueeeyyyyy. Susan

    You guys rock.
    I haul all of my own pellets, but since my pickup won't pass smog, I have to haul them in the Dodge Caravan.

    10-12 sacks in the back and it's like Gran Turismo.

    I also don't have the dry space to store multiple tons, but I am working on it!

    Someday, I can be a Pig!

    Now remember everyone, applications for pellet pig membership MUST be sent to eernest4...he is the grand pooba of the pellet pigs.....and if he doesn't think you bought too many tons, then you don't qualify.

    However, please don't forget to send me the $25 membership fee beforehand. :)
