Dry creeks are ok not to great. I burned green supreme Appalachian blend (lignetics) last year and liked them but no one has them. Heard cubex are bad. I was burning fireside ultras and they are ok with heat but heavy ash. I burned curran the first year I got my pellet stove and they were junk. Burned a few bags of barefoot and they were ok but I think I’m going to stick with the softiesI used to get Hamers from Slaters in Cairo. Im burning Lignetics this year. Burned Cubex the last 2 years.
I'm halfway between Troy and Bennington VT. I get my tonnage from Bennington and I grab Barefoots for those really cold snaps from wherever I can.
I just grabbed 5 bags of Dry Creek, that Ive never burned before. Seem ok. Got them from a Feed and Fuel station on RT 20, just east of Duanesburg. They also have Currans, which I would personally stay away from.
