    slls, Self hauling is really a bonus and gets you stars for doing it. See Eric's rules.
    So #1 plus a,b or c gets you in. A is pretty much a given as you need a stove to burn said pellets. :) So if you have b or c? Your in! I have a and c to earn my status. It's an easy one for the self haulers. The hogs that gobble lots of fuel take a and b (imacman and SmokeyTheBear for example).

    Hey guys, I want to be a pellet pig!! I started the season with 3.5 tons, 2.5 tons of Cleanfire and 1 ton NEWP. I have burned the original 2.5 tons of Cleanfire and 1 ton of Hamers Hot Ones that I picked up in early January, but I am now up to 8.5 tons on hand as I've been buying like crazy at the current prices. I currently have 3 tons Hamers, 2.5 tons AWF and 1 ton Curran in my barn. I have 1 ton Curran in my garage and 1 ton NEWP in my basement. I need all these pellets to feed my 2 stoves, a 2005 England 55SHP22 in the basement and new for this season a St. Croix Hastings on the first floor which heats both the first and second floors of my home. I am mostly a pick up myself guy with a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 HD Hemi, but I did get the AWF delivered from www.woodpellets.com when they were having a sale and $39 delivery in November. I frequent my local Lowes and TSC (both 10 minutes away from my home) looking to see what pellet brands and prices they have every week. My wife thinks I have pellet mental issues. I even refer to the stash in my barn as my "Strategic Pellet Reserve" when people ask me what all the bags are in there. My house has been toasty warm all winter and my propane supplier isn't getting rich off me because of it! I hope this qualifies me to be a pellet pig, and thanks for the consideration.

    I think you are beyond pellet pig, I would put you in hog category, if there is one.
    I bet a official will chime in.

    slls is correct! You qualify in a big pig way! I am a wee pig so you have to ask one of the true hogs what your statues would be. But you are a pig for sure!

    Put this in your sig!

    A classic thread that had to be bumped since it is before the first frost of the year.


    I would like to submit my application for membership. I have a Harman P61a that I bought used and restored myself. I have 3 tons on Turman in the garage all hauled with a Toyota Sequoia with trailer in one trip. It does have the nearly 400 horsepower 5.7 v8 and not that little 4.7 gas sipper. It was all stacked by me with all labels of the bags in proper direction. Future plans for the addition of a second Harman upstairs with additional quantity of top shelf pellet fuel. I understand I meet the 3 ton minimum by the skin of my teeth but I ask for for you to be lienient due to my geographical location.

    Do you promise to root in the pellet piles at your local big boxes and always protect your stash from pilfering hogs like OMV?

    Just placed an order with www.woodpellets.com for 10 tons of Cleanfire Hardwoods to be delivered anytime after 1 October. Haven't received my "Official" Oinker Card, yet, but having burned 14+ tons in the last three years between the P43 & the P61A, I expect it to arrive anyday now. Only got 4 bags stashed, but I don't have a whole lot of indoor storage. Not looking forward to "The Hawk" as the Chi-town folks call it, but I'll be ready when it gets here...

    Dang! I must admit that I will not "root" at BB stores, as I was an NFI Certified service technician & have seen far too many UCOs (Unidentified Clinker Objects) in burn pots & too much "mung" (technical term) from the pseudo-wood pellets sold at such emporia & therefore will spend the additional moneys needed to procure American Biomass certified fuel. I will, however, defend my stash from all potential fuel-pilfering UnSubs with any means at my disposal, including my Paslode Framing Nailer...If I fall short of the PP Certified requirements due to the aforementioned assertations, I shall strive to overcome my self-professed "anality" & maybe, surreptitiously, appropriate a container or two of said pseudo-fuel & perform a carefully monitored scientifically verified combustion experiment to see if I can bring myself to acknowledge the acceptibility of the results...(Oink!)

    Wow .......I just have to laugh because I was just complaining about #3 the other day....

    I have almost 4 ton in my basement (need another 1/2 ton and I'll have a little over 4 ton)....
    anyway, I have a Toyota Tundra which pretty much drinks the gas like kool-aid, and for every ton I get I have to make 2 trips!!

    I would like to apply......

    I can supply pictures if needed!

    Thanks

    Here's the pic. The far end has 10 bags Somerset (from last year), 1 ton barefoots. The middle stack has 1/2 ton Allegheny, 15 bags Presto's, and 10 bags MWP. The stack nearest is 1 ton barefoots. I still need another 1/2 ton and am thinking either another 1/2 Allegheny's or 1/2 ton something from HD or Lowes.......

    If that's a Flat Screen TV behind your stash, you just might be a Pellet Pig...
