I'm looking to buy some mid-grade/shoulder pellets and these are the 2 brands available in my area for $4.18/bag ($209/ton) at Home Depot. I burned a few bags of the Chows last year with decent results, I've never heard of Fireside and would appreciate any input. All the good stuff around here is in the $280 - $300 /ton range. On a related note, I mentioned in another thread that there was a Lowes nearby that had Somersets for $209/ton, I bought the last 10 bags and they burn awesome. I wish I coiuld find them in my area, but no dice.
