Hi Daksy,We are within 10 bags of finishing our first 1.5 ton pallet of Cleanfire Pacific (softwood) pellets.
Got 4.5 tons more sitting wrapped & tarped. Waffling as to whether or not to rip into a second
pallet to get us thru to 2 Jan, when we're bailing & heading to warmer weather, or to buy 30-40
bags locally & leave the wrapping intact...We're burning roughly 2 bags a day non-stop, up here
in NY's Capital District...
usually around here outside phila HD Takes pellets off the floor end of february and bbq grills appear..HD will probably get plenty more pellets in, it's really still fairly early in the heating season. There was that problem was a few years ago when it got crazy cold March-April and all the stores had switched back over to spring merch. I started the season with 8 tons of pellets (oink oink), will probably come close to using everything if its like that again this year but probably not....
Yeah, my local HD is out of pellets. Only Lowes has them, but that was a few weeks ago when my dad bought some.usually around here outside phila HD Takes pellets off the floor end of february and bbq grills appear..
Yep I keep six ton in the basement and I've only have gone through a little over 3 ton. I have a dealer in Maine that sells all year around and his best prices are in April which match the big box stores. So I will always order them and they're delivered free.just had 2 tons of EzBlaze permiums dropped off wenesday...
won't be using them till next season.. always have 4 tons in the basement by september.
my mistake.. actually keep 5 tons ahead but,,,,,, do not get free delivery. pay 35.00 ton then 15 each ton after... lucky you..Yep I keep six ton in the basement and I've only have gone through a little over 3 ton.

when I have smaller pellets i drop the feed rate from #4 to 3 for that reason..For sure it seems there was shortage for pellets. My local HD had stove chows and within a week they ran out of the last shipment. I cannot buy a whole TON as I don't have space where to store it, so I am now getting the white bags from TSC.
What I notice is: yes, stove chow are "hotter" than TCS white bags (which I think are Maine woods) but my stove goes through the chows in ~13 hrs. up to 14 hrs, while the TCS white bags last for 16 hrs or more. I will do another test tonight with TSC, but my take is that chows burn hotter only because their size are smaller and more fall into the pot. Otherwise, why would they only last 14 hrs tops?
Well it’s -16 here and lows tonight-20. Glad I got another ton last week!Yeah, it's about to get real cold around here in the next couple of weeks. Just saw the forecast. I am going to be buying some more bags are HD. I see some 2 bags a day coming my way.
well, my serenity has no fancy control over the auger past the stall 1. I just checked and TCS pellets last me about 19 hrs and still had some pellets which i would think another hour. To see if they produce the same heat as stove chow (not scientifically method) I'll increase to stall 2, which means auger will feed more frequent than in Stall 1. Let's see how much TCS pellets will last in that setting.when I have smaller pellets i drop the feed rate from #4 to 3 for that reason..
Where in Western Mass. can I find these. How much a ton? Williamstown is the only place in W. Mass on their dealer map and that's way too far. Anything closer to Greenfield?I thought sure I was going to run out but have almost a ton left at the beginning of March. The Vermont pellets burn clean and hot, I’ll get them again.
