Picked up some bags of these pellets while in Northern NY, as my TSC brand pellets are crappy.. Seem to be OK, blended hardwood/softwood, made in Canada by Lauzon, company also makes other brands such as Cubex, Northern Max, etc.. pellets sizing seems consistent, not very dusty , good heat output.

How are the pellets as far as size? Are they cut fairly short so that longer pellets don't create potential auger jams?

They are 1/2 to 3/4 in long

I've used both the Fusion Blend and Fusion Hardwoods (both gotten off CL - only place I've seen them). The blend weren't as hot as the hardwood. They also left a gritty ash, which was different, but not "bad". My notes from the spreadsheet I keep.

As a comparison, LaCrete SW burn at 300* for me (temp taken from the air flowing out of the distribution ducts via oven thermometer - all temps taken with feed rate at 3). Fireside Platinums (SW) burned at about 275 also.

That 325 for the Fusion HW's (what I show as rebagged Cubex) is the highest temp I've ever had - disclaimer, I did not measure regular Cubex or Hamers when I had them many years ago).

I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again if the price was right (I don't usually need big heat, so only buy better pellets on the secondary market).
