Just grabbed 10 bags of Energex pellets, thinking I had a shoulder season burn. Wow was I wrong, damn things are hot and super clean. I did notice a new bag,but assumed it to be same pellet. I was so wrong. These look and burn very different than I remember. They are short, light colored, low ash, and hot. I burned them years ago, & was not impressed. My stove is pickey and I am retiring her after this season.(upgrading to a P38) But my old iron work horse loves these pellets. I've noticed that pellets this year are short and hot, at least my stash. Any one else experience a pellet surprise this season??
