    they are called lignetics. The reviews are not the best but I dont really have enough knowledge to know if they are good or not. They seem OK.

    Lignetics are a good brand. Been around a long time. They make a few variations of their pellets. Hopefully the the name is in green lettering, and not blue. It should say something like "Hardwood", or "Hardwood & conifer blend" under that.....the hardood version is the best overall, but I had good results with the blend too.

    The version w/ "Lignetics" in blue are not good. This is a pic of the blend bag:

    @ScottM don't forget update your profile with stove and your location. You mentioned your'e running on gen now due to Sandy - good luck - hope you get your power back soon.

    Welcome to the forum Scotty.
    Make sure to put your stove into your signature.
    Where are you from, and what pellets are you burning?

    My lignetics have the green letters. Seem to work good. I live in NJ. 70 miles west of NYC. I got my power back last Thursday. Lots of trees down. Lots of time spent with the chain saw. I was on generator power for 10 days. It ran the whole house but it also burned 5 gallons of gas a day. I turned the settings down to 3-2-1 It is still hot but I think if I go lower the flame might go out. Thanks to all for your input.

    My 25pdvc is currently running on 2-4-1 and I can chug along on 1heat and 5 blower and maintain my house at 68-69 degrees and burn a bag of pellets in 28-32 hours depending on how small the pellets are. My stove was changed the other day somehow to 1-4-1 (guessing my kids) and the damn thing kept going out and I thought the pellets were damp till I checked it out.

    Give it a shot with 2-2-1....if it goes out, then go back to 3-2-1.
