I am not a pellet burner myself, and also know that there are not to many from colorado here, but was at a Costco Wholesale, and they had confluence energy, made in kremmling colorado from bettle kill pine. they were 4.19 for a 44 pound bag. Guess thats about 188.55 a ton or so? just to throw some info into the pellet pile. Denver and Colorado Springs from what I was told.
