I"ve had good luck with these in the past. I plan to pickup a few bags in the next day or two to test out but since it's going to be 80 degrees here in Western Mass. today I'm not looking forward to firing up the stove! <lol>
I tested the Firesides a few days ago and they are very hot for a big box pellet. I didn't finish up the full bag so I wasn't able to weigh the ash to compare to two years ago when a bag yielded 63 grams of ash. I think they are a lot better than the Green Supremes I used all last year. The GS ash was okay but it didn't put out enough heat so I ended up using about 3/4 of a ton more than I normally do.
