    By the way, these are the Pa-based "Energex American" hardwood pellets.

    Thanks for all the good info Jay I really appreciate it.

    Tractor Supply is close I'll give the bedding pellets a try. Truman's are $240/ ton $4.80/ bag same price Hamer's not sure of current price ,were almost $300/ton last year.

    Human nature seems like we always want what we can't have.

    I'm a pellet newb, so I ended up trying just about everything in my area. NA's are not great, Greene Supremes aren't blowing my skirt up either. Green Teams were a slightly better pellet, but not by much. My top 2 favorites are Somersets and Barefoots. Both have awesome heat and the ash isn't bad. After exhausting trial and error testing, I've found my go to's in my opinion.

    You and Forum member FreakinStang would get along great. He has several Stangs and used to run a shop here in Ohio with his Dad. His current Cobra is Ridiculous (much as your Mach is ;))

    Nice ride man...

    I have had a few stangs. 70 mach1 351C 4 spd and a 73 mach1 351C 4spd. Always wanted a boss 429 until I saw this. Now I want one. Without the crash of course. Shoulda kept the wheel straight!



    I had one of these too 1967 Fairlane. Pulled out the 289 and stuffed a 460 with CJ heads in it. Fun car but it was a trailer queen!

    I dream of Fairlanes...... I also sport wood for the Ford Thunderbolt. Oh how I wish I can own one!!!

    BTW, I'm not trying to hijack this thread. If this needs to be moved, I gladly will. I'm glad there are other car freaks here!

    Never had a muscle car ,but in 1966 our family car was a Mercury S55 428cu in 4/11 rear end, 4 speed would go like a ***** ape . Loved riding in that car with Dad when he cut her loose, hooked me on big HP muscle cars.

    I like Hamer's in my stove.

    They raised the price on Hamer's last year to 279/ton in the summer so I tried a bunch at 219/ton: Cheat River (cakes in the burn pot), America's Best (ashes), Dominion (ashes).

    I just picked up 8 of Lignetics, and 8 of another brand (can recall). I'll try those too. At this point, I'll go back to Hamer they burn hotter, I need fewer, and I clean the stove less.

    I really hope I can find these near Poughkeepsie, NY. I've heard great things and I'm anxious to try them.

    That's a drive for me, but I do have a local tsc that sells pine equine bedding for 5 bucks. Will give them a try for the heck of it.

    John 193, where in SE Pa. are you. Grimes Mower shop in Newmanstown carries quite a few different brands. North Forge Home Heating on 322 in Fontana carried some blend pellets.

    Hey Dex- I had that TOO ; but only for 1-3 days of first using them--seems odd/weird, but after that clear sailing(no smell) AND they seem MUCH hotter than Stove Chow, andGreen Supremes. I like them , but have more ash than the others.......thoughts?
