Been burning pres to logs this winter and have had no complaints . Light brown in color and a bit on the chalky looking side and a bit dusty but did the job with no issues. Today I picked some up from the same Lowes and the first and only bag I opened, the pellets were a chocolate color and looked polished. Smooth like a sheet of hard board. They seem to have less fines and the pellets are much cleaner looking. Has anyone had a experience with the same product.
