You all know I tested a mess of pellets last year. I "may" test some this year as well. Due to lack of valuable time, I can't test that many brands this year. I would like to see if we could get as many members as possible evaluating pellets this year. There was some squabling on how I tested and in the end the only thing that seemed valuable was the total ash content. Everything else was deemed to have no value by some. Before the next test's begin, I would like to get what the group wants to see. Starting now should give everyone a chance to add something and weigh in with there idea's. Lets get it done now before we start in say late Sept or early October. Here are a few of mine. 1. 2 threads 1 each for test results only and the requesting of brands to be sampled. 2. A moderator to help in keeping above in line. Moving the request's to the proper thread. Lets try to keep it orderly. Easier to follow 3. Members testing to post results in one post. 4. Lots of members burning a sample and forwarding the results. Even if all we sample is the total ash amount. Some info is better than no info at all. IMHO. Think about it! OH And by the way, My name is "JAY" not jake. :lol: Here's what we have so far: List brand and 2 bag burn should do and stove on medium heat. 1.) Average heat in ºF optional ???? 2.) Ash volume shown in a mason jar for a nice visual 3.) Ash weight and percentage 4.) fines This could be percentage or volume? 5.) Pellet density how many pounds fit in a 1 cu ft. container optional??? 6.) Check bag weight. If bags are over weight correct to 80 LBS. Balance's the test to just burn 80 LBS. of fuel. Definetly make a note if bags are under weight! Maybe add to make a full 80 LBS. burn??? We can add to above. I sized the pellets by dia and length, Could be useful? Note if brand has a PFI label. Bag date? I would like to do an estimated burn time, But this will be hard for the people doing a auto start with a stat. 24/7 burners could.
