    Which lowes did you find these at? I've checked with about 10 different ones in Orange County NY area and nothing, nada, zip, zilch etc. only have Green Supremes. Although I I'd find presto log bags yesterday and grabbed 10 bags, but nothing else.

    Pfft, a real pig would have an electric pallet jack. You need more toys not pellets! :p

    Old wives' tales. I stored two tons of Barefoot on two pallets, outdoors for almost two years and had 0 issue. I kept the original pallet plastic cover on and over-wrapped them each with a tarp and tied off with straps.

    Yeah, I got two tons of Somersets left over from 2010 when I snatched them in Eastern CT. Burned the Green Team and Fireside Ultra last year to save the good stuff, and saved another ton of Barefoots from 2009. Putting dates with pellets reminds me of picking out wines! :)

    So this is my first year using a pellet stove and after much research and forum reading I have realized that of all the Pellets available to me the overwhelming favorite are the Somersets. I also know that i should buy a few bags of each before buying in bulk(shame on me), BUT With that being said I have found Somersets after MUCH.....and I mean MUCH searching and decided to get 2 Tons. With shipping = $488. So if they suk I have seen several posts where people are offering to take them and even pick them up(I will keep that in mind). But at $488 for 2 tons it sure beats filling up my 1000 gallon oil tank 3-4 times a year so I'll take my chances. I may be a pig just yet. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. I'll just consider myself a piglet for now!!!

    Paul, I did the same thing. I was trying to do my due diligence, and try different pellets. But, everyone seems to love the Somersets, so when I saw them, I jumped at the chance to buy three tons. I'll probably still buy a few bags of this and a few bags of that to try as I go along in case I am unable to find Somersets again.
