    I have tried several different pellets and my choice for my Quadrafire Castile is Turman. Made in Virginia from Oak that is leftover from a flooring manufacturer. They burn hot and clean with very little white to gray fluffy ash. Never any clinkers and no black soot. I have tried others when I run out at the end of the season(from hardware stores and bog box stores) and most of them were terrible. High ash content and left alot of black greasy soot on my stove insides.

    I paid $240/ton. Not sure what you would pay in your area if you can get them.

    Love Turmans. Good heat and very little ash. $240 a ton in southern PA. Dealer ran out of Turmans and was selling Lignetics. Got a half ton and hate them. Way too much ash! Have to clean stove every one to one and a half days. Burn pot full of hardened ash! With, Turmans, i could wait 3-4 days to clean. No hardened ash/clinkers. Turmans all the way!

    Anyone here who can compare the Turmans to the Somersets, also made from a wood floor manufacturer?

    Somersets are much smaller in size and a little more ash. Good heat from both. In my neck of the woods, both are very hard to find. When available, the sets are much cheaper.

    Just moved from a half ton burn of barefoot to starting a half ton of Turman and at first impression they are the victor. The burn looks hotter with more of a noticeable blue flame present at the base of the burn pot. Just a first impression but a strong one. I'll keep you posted, but seems like definite contender. Full disclosure: my experience with pellets is shinola. By the way, they're long compared to the barefoots but the auger doesn't seem to mind.
