    Just picked up the final ton of pellets for this winter. Nice, fresh batch of Somersets......they just came off the truck at Lowes on Monday. Paid for them ($209) Tuesday (thanks for the heads-up Schoondog!!), and I had today off from work so went and grabbed em.

    And yep, the pics to prove it happened ;lol

    Yes, the Newburgh store, but I got the very last full pallet.....only other one left had 2 bags missing (damaged I think). They DO have a LOT of Greene Team that just came in too.....seems that they are selling pellets very quickly....the entire Somerset load sold out in 48 hrs.

    ygrant, as per your question....it depends. If the pallet is broken open & re-stacked, it needs to be stored out of the weather. If it's still factory wrapped, it can be stored outdoors, but still needs to be covered by a good tarp, or in a shed.

    Here's the rest of the stash (2 tons of CleanFire and 1 of Greene Team):

    Nothing out of the ordinary for us pellet pigs, right Jay? ;) Drooling when we see pellets, especially nice ones, is expected.

    As Homer would say "mmmmmmmm pellets" ;hm

    Love the Somersets! Don't have the pics handy, but got a ton and a half and will get more if they are available. Got a ton of Dry Creeks and a few GT. Bring on a bad Northeast winter.

    Menards has pellets on sale at $3.39/bag. The one Lowes in the area is having a "temporary price reduction" to match Menards $3.39. They have over 12 tons of Somersets!!!! I asked if they honor the 10% off coupons and they said yes since it's not actually on sale. Soooo....saying goodbye to my side of the garage and buying at least 3 ton at $152.50 per ton. Heck I might just double my current stash at that price.

    Nice!

    Never had the opportunity to find/try out those Somersets but they seem to be
    a good consistent pellet year after year.

    You saving those Cleanfire for a special occasion or avoiding them?;)

    I'm slowly burning them for shoulder seasons. The 10-cpm will burn em, and I just increase the fuel trim to get some decent heat out of them. They're not great, but I'm not throwing them away.
