Going on the pellet world tour. Trying out different brands.
I wish I had done this. Instead I bought 2 tons based on a neighbors recommendation and they are terrible. Few BTU's and very difficult to heat in this frigid weather we've had in New England this week. Tried a new softwood pellet from Maine yesterday and it was amazing. Now what do I do with 1 1/2 tons of useless pellets in my garage? :(

Hey LynnM, sorry to hear that. Sometimes you can mix a quarter or half of the bad pellets in with your good ones to help burn them off quicker or max out the feed rate and burn them on high. I had to do that with some subpar TSC badged pellets and Cheat River pellets.
