    I found these pellets at tractor supply lastnight. Nothing come up on my search of the forums. Does anybody have any experience with them?

    Wood pellet review web site seems to indicate they were very good but more ash this year.

    I just picked up some to test. Love the pine smell.

    Followup: Just burned a 1/2 bag and it looks like there is more ash than the bag indicates. I had about a 1/4 bag of other pellets in the hopper when I added these so once I clean the stove completely I'll get an accurate test on them and report back.

    Don't let the specs fool you, they can put whatever they want on the bag. Anyway, I just finished burning 10 pounds and got 12oz of ash (volume) that weighed 3.8oz, thats 2.37%. The bag claims .5% or less. They did put out decent heat and smell good though.

    I have QuadraFire Mt Vernons at 2 locations. I have been heating with pellets more than 20 years. This year's Rocky Mountain pellets are the worst pellets I have ever used. So much ash in them that I cannot burn more than 1/2 bag before they stop the stove from re-lighting .I am told that, after the Kremling fire at the plant, the owners purchased pellets elsewhere and packaged them in their bags knowing they were substandard.The "Best money can buy" packaging appears to be something the company knows to be false. Even if this is not the case, these pellets are so bad that no one should ever buy this brand again. They should have a warning on the bag about the excessive ash instead on a proclamation that they are the best. Ask the manager at your retailer if there have been complaints. If I can't find pellets better than this, the stoves go to the landfill and I'll be heat with gas.
