    I read so many good about these pellets. What I found was not the case, read on!

    My tried and true Palazzetti with 23,000 hours was the test animal. Stove is a very fussy pellet miser. Pellets purchased last week @ Slaters Pellets (real nice people) in Cairo, NY. Here is my real world unofficial report.
    • The bags are TERRIBLE and will break open easily.
    • Average fines in bag
    • Smell-O-meter slight wood smell, pellet looks nice but very small
    • Temp is OK with ABOVE average ash
    • Wax like build up in burn pot, must clean burn pot after burning every 1/3rd of a bag
    • Co-workers have tried with same disappointing results
    • No Clinkers, burn pot plugs up
    Maybe I got a bad batch, worst pellet I have used in 10 years, 1 Star

    Unfortunately, sometimes it doesn’t pay to try different stuff!

    They burn just fine in my Harman. Yes the bags are weak!

    I wouldn't have even tried these if Okanagan was still in business. One of my co-workers tried a bag with the same results and he has a Harman!

    next up in the[real] top of the line softwoods are the Ez Blaze super premiums..
    high 80's BTU's with powdery ash leftover...... the poor man's excellent softwoods at a much lower price..
    i paid 249.00 ton. same price HD charges for mediocre hardwoods like stove chows and walmart for penningtons, lowes green supremes and so on.....
    no brainer there
