    I have a Whitfield Profile 20 stove......have only used Dry Creek Pellets for the last 5 years (as recommended by the store where the stove was purchased).
    They seem to be fine, but like I said, I have nothing else to compare it to.

    Dry Creek at my retailer right now are $265/ton. So I was hoping to find a little cheaper alternative, if possible.

    Since there is much discussion on the boards lately about pellet prices rising, I wanted to see what other brands of pellets Whitfield Profile stove users have used.

    So, what pellets have you had success with in your Whitfield Profile? Which ones not so good?? Do people prefer hardwood or softwood for their Whitfield Profiles?

    There is also a lot of discussion about the New England Wood pellets at http://newenglandpelletllc.com/index.asp. Has anyone used their pellets in a Whitfield Profile stove?

    Thanks.

    I don't think you'll get them on the East Coast but Heartland wood pellets from Pope and Talbot burn great in the Profile series. They're softwood (ponderosa pine).

    Thanks for the reply, Shane....

    I'll try to find them.

    I was hoping other Whitifield users would chime in....with the price of pellets (and everything else for that matter) going up, i've been trying to find the best deal this year.

    thanks again.

    I also have a whitfield profile 20 in my basement and burned "PA Pellets" and have NO problems with them. My breckwell in the main living area also burned PA Pellets with no issues.

    Pennington Oak pellets work very well in my Profile 30. I just purchased two tons, in 40 pound bags, and paid $590.00 including tax. I had to load them.
