    Went to Lowe's yesterday and they have 3 brands with all the same characteristics. Green something, Madison?, and another brand.

    The difference is the quality control and fibre source. Green "something" is Green Supreme....made by NEWP....poor at best.

    All the same characteristics? You mean they were all wood pellets in 40# bags? Lol.

    IHATEPROPANE and imacman are correct. Give us something to work with here.

    100% hardwood
    0.5 ash
    and there are 2 other items on the bag which were the same.

    Green Team, Somerset, two other I cannot remember.

    Greene Team are a good pellet, although Lowes has been asking more for them (even though the specs are all the same).

    If you can get the Somersets at the lower ton (contractors) price, grab as many tons as you can afford/store.....they are THAT good.

    BTW, the contractors ton price seems to be either $209 or $219/ton, depending on location.

    Just called and confirmed that Lowe's has
    Dedham: Pres-to-logs and Natures own
    Quincy: Somerset and Hearthside

    Excluding the Heathside I would have to say south shore has a better selection then north shore.

    I've called 3 Lowes around me, Seekonk, Dartmouth and Raynham. All had a mix of Hearthside, Greene Team, Green Supreme and Inferno's. The guy in the garden center of Lowes Dartmouth said that the Somerset's fly out as soon as they come in and people seem to know beforehand when they will be there.
