I was burning Barefoot. I bought a ton in late November. Some clinkers, alot of ash. I would clean every 2 days. I had tried New England Canadian, wasn't happy with the heat output. I have also tried Lignetics, seemed to produce good heat, however not as much as the Barefoot. Right now, I bought 10 bags of LGs. It's supposed to get real cold tonight and tomorrow. Down in the single digits. We'll see how they perform as far as heat output. when I was burning Barefoots, and it got real cold in December for a couple days straight, they kept my house nice and toasty warm. I'm hoping the LGs perform as well, lower amount of ash and no clinkers.
