    Premier Pellets Appalachian Hardwood are an Energex pellet. I burned them for a couple a seasons with decent results. Decent heat but a bit ashy. Similar to stove chow.

    Burning Country Boy. In my opinion, they are just as good as Sommersets.

    Burning Turmans, all I have bought so far this year. The least ash I have ever experienced out of a wood pellet.

    Just bought a couple of CRAPPE all softwood pellets...I'm sold on them.....in my Thelin they burnt like a champ...great heat output on my probe (located on the stove output vent grate).,,,,also VERY low ash so far...the pellets are very clean and have a light light tan color..looks like NO BARK at all....and they smell great...I'm going to buy 2 Canadian tons this weekend (metric)...I think it contains 70 bags in a pallet..1.4 tons...price at $315.00...only about 8 miles from me..located in Medway Maine. Compaired to MWP my other choice...the MWP has a fuller bag...seems like the Crappe bag contains less pellets..??..anyways I always thought the MWP gave you a good load in a 40lbs bag..

    hey, ruckus. : )
    bottomed out at 6 degrees over here this morning.
    the siding, house wrap and extra insulation we got over the summer are making a big difference.

    The MWP are not compressed as most other brands, so when the bags are filled by weight, versus volume ~ they appear to have more in them. Still 40 pounds, either way.

    Got a bag and a half left of Green Supremes, I'll be thrilled tomorrow night when I can switch to the Green Teams I just picked up. Gonna be nice to see my stove not loading up with ash every 5 days.

    Been burning the North American hard/soft blend. Nice heat actually. Lots of fluffy ash - not a big deal.
    @Steve - re: the Dry Creek - definitely not bad but not for $270 IMHO.
