Have read a lot about how the Green Supremes (GS) are an average to below avg pellet so I decided to grab a few bags (4.38). Up to now I have used only Okanagons (okies) and Lacrete's. I have been very happy w/ both. Was told they both come from the same B.C. canadien forrest ..both are Super premium softwood @ well over 5.00 per bag. After cleaning the burn pot and setting the stove to 4/6 (feed rate/blower speed) I burned the GS's for 2 hours and was able to get the temp in my 20x20 Great room w/ 18 ft ceilng from a starting temp of 65 to 75 in that time period. The GS's also produced a very large flame easily "licking" the top plate in the chamber the entire time. Seemed very hot. After shutting down stove, cleaning burn pot again and letting room cool back to 65 I used just the LaCretes. After 2 hours the room got up to about 71 but the flame was considerable shorter in height!?!? Pellets seemed to very dry and solid. I had to change feed rate to 6 to get the same size flame and heat of the GS's at "4"?!? Is it possible my stove likes the hardwood blend better than the premium softwoods? I thought I read here that softwoods were typically superior. On a side note the GS's were a bit more dirty leaving light brown ash on the interior of the stove and glass. Hard to justify the 283.00 per ton price of the Lacretes overall.
