Maine's Choice = ???? anyone?
I did a little research today because I've got a ton of Nation's Choice with very little info on the bags. The only lead I found was an email address for firstname.lastname@example.org. This led me to International Forest Products, owned by none other than our local hero, Mr. Kraft. Looking through their press releases, there's a statement about an exclusive agreement between IFP and Geneva Wood Fuels for pellets under the name Maine's Choice.
So I'd put a solid bet on Nation's Choice being the same pellet as Maine's Choice.
It was explained to me by OPC's marketing dept. in e-mails that Westwood Premium Pellets are identical to Okanagans when I was looking for Okies locally. For some reason they don't sell Okanagans in Spokane.
Here's info directly from two pellet manufactures websites:
New England Wood Pellets - Our Products Page
New England Wood Pellets = Warm Front
"They (Warm Front) are manufactured from the identical proprietary blend as our New England Wood Pellet brand."
Lauzon Recycled Wood Energy
Sold under the names Comfort, Cubex and Northern
Your right Jay, these bags look very similar !!
Mr Craft also has dealings with the Inferno brand. So from a good source I have it as they are rebagged Inferno's. Now as long as they don't start stuffing the inferno's in the Maine Choice bags from strong we should be OK. But just in case I'll pass and buy MWP or Corinth's this season! Safe bet that way!
I saw that after my post. I won't say that they are the best pellet I've used, but, they still put out heat. They'll get me by for the shoulders this year. Heck of a lot of ash in the pot.
I know its an old thread, But here we go again(no sense IMHO to start a new one). Seems PA/Dry Creek have a new lil sister, Timber Heat!
Thanks will711 for the scoop!
As we get some new entries we'll have to update the list.
Marth = Pennywise
Seriously though, I think Maine Choice and Geneva are the same pellets.
Geneva makes Maines Choice which is a blend and a 100% hardwood. Never tried the hardwood but like the blend.
"Premium" brand sold at Lowes is made by AWF, and Timber heat is bagged by Dry Creek, AFAIK
(Maine*)Tractor Supply wood pellets = MWP
*As suggested by jtakeman
From what I was told MWP in the TSC bags for the New England area. We could see product from up to 5 different mills all across the country and the only way to know which mill? Is to use a UPC search to find the mill. Once we get the mills that are in them, We add them all to this thread.
HD is doing the same and we need both of their UPC codes to get the mill info. In other words we need some help getting the codes. Post em if you got em!
The tons that I have been getting at TSC in Maine are in MWP bags, not TSC bags.....
