    Sure it makes a difference. I usually bring in my Somersets and sit on em awhile, then a short fondling session before I slip em in. Oh wait maybe that was Kate Upton and I leave my Somersets out with my beer till I'm done with Kate.;em:)

    Leave it to Smoke Show to take a good solid beer thread and turn it into a Babe thread!

    Cold whiskey (on the rocks) = good.

    Cold pellets dumped into my hopper = warm pellets by the time they hit the burn pot.

    Someone had to say something about pellets to keep this out of the can a bit longer. :)

    Just topped mine off with a bag of Somersets myself. Straight from the garage to the furnace. So far so good.

    Letting your pellets get cold is like letting your beer get warm. A shame really, but still doable! My pellets reside in the warm basement a few feet from the stove. I have purchase pellets on a whim and couldn't help myself from burning right away. Tossed the cold ones right into a freshly emptied hopper. They still roasted my can and no ill effects.

    Waters is my only worry with pellets and/or beer. A watery beer is bad enough, But a soggy pellet is a waste and I tendz to cry!

    Hey Jay

    I am almost done with the Maine's choice. This last batch was in my garage for 2.5 years which may be another factor.

    Anyway here are the pellets available in my area, which would you choose?

    Fireside Ultra
    Infernos

    Pennington Nature's Heat

    MWP - Main Wood Pellets
    Geneva Premium Wood Pellets
    Logic-E

    NEWP - New England Wood pellets
    Cubex

    Okanagan Super Premium Wood Pellets

    Hello

    Well, by storing the pellets in the warm basement it did help and there is no more ash in the burn pot every morning. However, the basement is still not getting hotter than 70 or 71 degress with those 2.5 year old STALE wood pellets. Like a year old jar of popcorn that does not pop very well! So I some FRESH bags of Geneva pellets that come from the same mill.Pellets are same color and same characteristics and Shazam! The heat came right back up to 80 Degs in the basement near the stove! So what do you think of Stale wood pellets older than 2 or 3 years?
