    Buy it. Where are you? If you get stuck with extras, I'll take them off your hands. I am one of the poor souls who has never even laid eyes on Somersets in person. I still think they are just a myth.

    Though the loss leader strategy is very effective. I left there with all kinds of stuff, especially because I had to borrow a truck to get the pellets.

    Buy another ton. The pellets will not go bad, and unless you get a flooded basement, they will be just fine. I have a basement on the moist side and usually have extra bags at the end of the season. Never had a problem with the "old" pellets.

    I would think any pellet is burnable/usable as long as it has not started expanding/breaking down. I would figure that a moist pellet would have too much water content within it to actually hold together, and in that case be useful for only garden mulch to help keep down the weeds. :)

    I have had pellets sit in my (damp) basement for over a year and still burn perfectly fine.

    I can't tell where you are from your profile but I live in The Great State of Tennessee. I know humidity, 90% during the summer, and mine are stacked outside in my unclosed garage. You're over thinking the humidity problem. But if your water heater bursts or your basement is prone to water after it rains then you may have an issue. Keep them off the floor.
