    Yeah. Tried a bag in the Quad. Pretty good pellet. Smell good, pretty small, and has a clear bag. I love the clear bags that some Manufacturers have gone to. Allows you to see the actual product and verify the fines, color, and also overall length of the pellet.

    Because Somersets are so small, they are still my overall favorite pellet. The Rockys would be a close second, if they were readily available in our area. But Somersets are the Chit around here (and normally had for $175 / Never paid more than $215) .

    BTW, imacman, I stumbled across some somersets tonight at my local Lowes. Heading over there tomorrow with my 10% off coupon to see if I can score me several tons. Hoping for 4, but, I'll take what I can get. Since the first frost has hit us, I won't make pellet pig this season. But, hoping to achieve that status by this time next year! Although, I'll never be as cool as oldmountvernon. But, I'll try! :)

    My bad...259 is good for Somersets? I guess I underestimated them given the other prices mentioned on the thread. I'll have to check the review and give em a second look...may be taking a drive this afternoon.

    Just got back from Lowe's in Herkimer NY and they are dual pricing premiums at 260 and others at 209 but the Green Team were considered "Premium" so, my thought is even if they get somersets in they are going to be priced at 260/ton. I still have a ton from last year but I can't see paying an extra 60/ton over last year... argghhh we really should start a pellet coop and buy direct.

    imacman,.... seems we are neighbors,.. im right up the road in Modena. Great score on those somersets, been waiting for lowes Loydd/Highland to get them in, I got two tons of green supremes from HD 209. They burn good with little ash but no wheres the heat like the somersets, I did get 10 bags of the green teams, what did they charge you for the somersets and are they getting more in?

    Hello neighbor! I paid $209 for the Somersets. They had a new shipment of GT already in, and according to Robbie at GT, the Newburgh store is getting more in within a month (see below). Best thing to do is to go to the store and ask the people in the section where they keep the wood & pellet stoves to look up on their computer for the next delivery......that's what I did.

    As for those GS you got, as you found out, not good heat w/ them. They're just re-bagged NEWP, which haven't been any good for the past 3 yrs. Stick w/ the GT or Somersets in the future if you can get them.

    Latest emails from Robbie stated that the Middletown Lowes has a shipment of GT's getting shipped on approx 10/29. Newburgh store 1/11, Poughkeepsie 10/23
