    Need a decorative looking bucket for my pellets that will hold a 40 lb bag of pellets. Any ideas?

    Nice idea, but IMO, not worth $90.00.....a 5 gal pail and a utility knife do the same job. I can buy about 17-18 bags of premium pellets for that.

    I bought 2 stainless steel pails similar to feed pails. Keep one on each side of the stove....they look nice....holds a good amount. They will do til I find reasonable price on a good looking pail. I agree.....I wont pay 90....

    I agree $90 bucks is more than it is worth. When I bought it it was much less
    expensive. I guess the distributor thinks he is selling pellets..lol

    They must be pretty proud of that thing to charge 90 bucks for it. Personally I would happily carry the tried and true 5 gallon driveway tar, paint or drywall bucket for a long long time before I gave some outfit that sort of profit. Keep looking , try google product search , shopzilla ect........... How about a coal scuttle? Not so trendy so they should be cheaper. I can't say if it will hold a bag though, its been several decades since I looked at one close up.

    I use 2 coal hods that I bought at a yard sale. They hold about 30 lbs of pellets each.

    A little black stove paint on them and they look great.

    Hey Jay, does the Pellet Pail work as advertised?
