    Got them yesterday, had 3 ton of Hamers Hot Ones delivered they are all tucked away in the garage. Was going to go with Green Label Lignetics but after some advice on here and reading I went with the Hamers (did not try any before buying, only went on peoples input) Hope it was a wise choice.

    3 ton at $219 per
    Delivery $65
    High lift to unload $20

    May pick up another ton of something local just because.

    Heating oil....saw a sign today...$3.28/gal. That's still too high but a lot better than $3.89.

    I thought about that but it is a big area cubic feet wise. 40 X 40 with 14 foot ceilings, it has a oil hot air system in now, and i had thought about some sort of boiler and putting a coil in the air box but not sure if the cost would be worth it, and then the needed room to store the added pellets. Was also thinking of a hard coal boiler or furnace.

    shtrdave, I use a coal stoker stove in my 30x40x14 pole barn (uninsulated). The barn does get some sun during the day. When I leave the stoker running on fairly low level it keeps it between 50 and 60. I do have an extra Kodiak stoker. Let me know if you are interested in a deal.

    I just had a hundred gallons delivered yesterday and it was $3.39/gal. here in upstate, NY. Fortunately this amount and maybe 100 gallons in the fall will carry me through until next year around this time.
