Home depot in Smithfield RI has stove chow for $209 With Lowes 10% coupon you can get them for $189 I have been burning them in my P61 for around a week. Maybe 6 or 8 bags so far. They are very good for me. I have been burning only Somersets and I have to say the stove chow seem just as good. The heat output seems the same, I am running on room temp so the temp in the room is always the same anyway. I did run them from a cold start withthe stove really cranking and they seemed very close to the sets in terms of heat coming out. As for the ash there is very little. A little darker and grittier ash than the sets but no more ash. Anyway for me they burn very hot and clean, and at $189 the price is great. If I had more room I would get like 3 more tons. Of course Im sure everyones results will vary with different stoves.
