    worse case scenario, my local price chopper has some junk out front for 229 a ton. I could stop in every day on the way home from work and grab 5 bags in my car if i had to

    Success! Got my first load of pellets. 3T of Somersets I picked up yesterday:

    IMG_20140929_182925-800.jpg

    Now I atleast have these, with my other local options I may now try picking up a few bags of different kinds to see how this new stove likes them and if I can save any money compared to Somersets without excessive ash or loosing heat.

    The truck and I were a little sad to be hauling bagged and manufactured product, but I'm having fun this week also cutting up several cord of dead standing ash so its all right. Going to be a bit of a workout to unload it all. Oh how I wish my loader could pick up a whole skid that would be so slick. But I'll have to do the bag by bag method.

    And I don't have to do that, because I have 3 tons of Oakies headed my way in a couple weeks or so. The chow's will hold me over until then. :)

    I guess the smoke became a full fledged fire with the New England pellet news.

    "Approximately 1.5 million tons of wood pellets are consumed annually in the U.S. Northeast. According to independent forecasts, wood pellet consumption in the region is expected to increase at an annual growth rate of 7% through 2018. Customer demand for wood pellets in this market exceeds available regional production."

    If I stay inside and read nothing but impending doom, I will start to believe it!
    I saw Blowes had them a few weeks back and the threat of a shortage had already started online. I bought 1 ton yesterday, and will buy 1 ton today, then on to individual bags to top off the pellet shed to capacity.

    Anyone who's picked up pellets from Lowes and used a 10% off coupon, where did you get your coupon from? (feel free to PM me if you don't want to post)

    Thanks.

    Right now wishing I bought pellets back in the end of summer :(

    perhaps not the most accurate description, but in his area, it doesn't matter.
    National or regional or local... he doesn't have any.....

    Truck just left after placing two tons of the same brand of pellets into my garage. My GWF are actually rebranded Green Supremes that folks on the waiting list for "the real" Green Supremes wont take and continue to wait for their pellets to arrive at the store. Go figure, but I'm not complaining. Now going to supplement this stash with 5-10 bags of three or four other brands to see what my stove does with them. I'll eventually need two more tons but I'm in no rush.
