Bought 3 tons of Matra softwood pellets recently. Finished burning 3 bags so far, and cleaned the stove today to see how clean they are. Very little ash, very clean burn pot.....I am a happy camper, last years Easy Blaze were horrible. Prior year Easy Blaze were much better. The Matra pellets are very short, and very little fines/dust.

Anybody else burning Matras?

Wowzer, 400 and 300 a ton. I pay $212 a ton for Michigan Hardwood Pellets and I think that's high. When I started roasting pellets 30 years ago, they were $100.00 a ton. MHW is a nice pellet with hardly any ash when I run them straight during shoulder season. When it gets cold out, the corn starts flowing into the stove with the pellets. Corn is basically free, I grow it.

Considering one hundred 1990 dollars is now equivalent to $199 2020 dollars it would seem the price has been pretty stable for you when adjusted for inflation.

problem is, my wages and inflation aren't running on the same levels.
