    I don't have any contacts with VMP, If Rparker is willing to get in touch? See what days are available. Maybe even start a thread with the plan?

    I might be interested, too, assuming permission from the boss. We should def. move this to a new (planning) thread.

    I would also love to meet some of the other CT pellet guys but it's doubtful I can get off from work...my co-worker's wife is expecting a baby and he's got all the vacation time near the holidays. I look forward to a thread with details of the fun.

    If OMV goes I'm out....I'm sure he's got some way of telepathically scarfing pellets from your garage just by staring at your eyes. <>

    I'm in the market for another ton and was checking out several local pellet guy websites. FWIW, the Blakeslee website that prompted me to start this thread, has removed the word "unethical". They still show the Vermont pellets as a brand they carry (I don't think they've carried them for a few yrs) but now only say that the manufacturer has been "very unreliable".

    Based on what was already discussed in this thread and the VWP tour that some of our members took, I tend to not believe the claims of the dealer. Does anyone know if Vermonts are available in central CT? BT is out of stock.

    I just picked up a half ton on Saturday. I got the last of what my dealer had. He has 2 truck loads on order that will be in in two weeks. Vermont, unreliable? Or their pellets are so much in demand that thay can't keep up with orders? I would rather them keep their quality instead of pushing shitty pellets and ruining their product and following.

    Hoot, how are they running in the P61? Friend of mine is burning them in an XXV. Loves the heat, no ash, actually has to turn the feed rate down below 2.
    Only issue is that they blacken the glass quite a bit, but its a trade off to her with no complaints.
    Actually, I think we need to change her gaskets this summer, so that may be part of the excess blackening.

    Gbreda, I haven't started them yet. I got 6 bags of Spruce Pointes left. When I burned the VT's last year they were hot and very clean. But like you said, they did black out the glass. I'll chime in at the end of the week when I start running them.

    How did you like the Spruces this year? Did you think they had a lot of fines in them?

    I use to work for a stove shop that bought Vt. pellets. He would constantly have delivery problems. Why? Vermont, like any smart business, won't deliver pellets if they haven't been paid for the last 4 deliveries! Maybe this customer is doing the same thing?
