    Exactly why I haven't bought any "premium" pellets. What does premium mean anyway? Anyone can stick a flashy word on their bag. Oh wait, didn't someone do that last year? hmmmmmm :p

    Actually 'back in the day' when I bought my stove, like 14 years ago, the NEWPs produced very little ash. I could go forever without emptying my ash pan. I don't know what happened over the years.

    Nay, burn good stuff all the time, around here there is not enough price difference to buy bad pellets

    Check out my calculations:

    you might save $100 by burning cheaper pellets, but you'll be burning more pellets which means more cleanings.

    If the above quoted Cubex btu number is the moisture/ash free calc, and the MWP btu number is the "as received" calc then that would be further good reason to go with the MWP.

    see this link for MWP mixed hardwood softwood data from 2011:
