Bear Mountain Premium "Plus" Wood Pellets

These are the averages for 48 weekly Goldenfire samples sent into Twin Ports Labs between July 1, 2012 and July 1 2013.  The same as last year, I could send you a single test that would be amazing.  However, we prefer to show our average because it is not just the good values that set us apart, it is the consistency.    Please note that the Heating Value as received is even higher and the ash content even lower than last year.


Moisture Content:


Ash Content:


Heating Value - As Received:

8527 Btu/lb

Heating Value – Moisture Free:

8713 Btu/lb

Bear Mountain is same as our Goldenfire brand except we can mix up to 5% Western Red Cedar with the Douglas fir. We cannot detect a difference in testing other than a very slight increase in ash and an equally slight increase in heating value.

We are willing to go head to head with any pellet produced using independent lab tests or stove tests.

    I have a Lopi pellet stove and have burned Bear Mountain pellets for years and have been SO happy with them. I bought 3 ton this year and the pellets are not burning well, they are lighter in color and break apart like the cheaper brands, within hours I have clinkers and have to clean the pot daily and the glass on the door and walls inside the stove turn black just like it did with the cheaper pellets. Something is not right, I had the stove checked and it is in working order...HELP!

    We installed a Harman Accentra-2 Pellet Stove 5 years ago and have only burned Bear Mountain Pellets. I didnt realize how really good they are until a neighbor borrowed a few bags. They went on and on about the heat production and the lack of ash production. Needless to say we have not been tempted to burn any of the cheaper pellets.

    I have purchased several brands this year and found the bear mt pellets to work best in my napoleon npi45 they seem to burn hot and very clean. Also were priced @ 219.00 per ton which was good for quality pellets the clean burn also are good but 250 per ton 4.5 out 5 for a rating

    I have a Lopi Pioneer model pellet stove.
    If i attempt to run the stove above the medium setting the fire pot becomes choked and starts overflowing. I have had this occur as much as three times a day.
    Bear Mountiain premium pellets can only burn at a medium setting in my stove. There appears to be too much cedar causing clinkers to form rather quickly in my fire pot.

    I switched to Bear Mountain from Clean Burn pellets a couple of years ago. I had purchased a ton of Clean Burn on a plan where I could pick up 5 bags at a time. The supplier ran out of Clean Burn and substituted Bear Mountain for 5 bags. I noticed less ash and fewer clinkers right away. With the Clean Burn, I had to check for clinkers every few days, with the Bear Mountain, I didn't have any clinkers with those 5 bags. I now order Bear Mountain because I find that they are worth the slightly higher cost.

    I have an Enviro Mini.

    From a dealer's standpoint, we have carried Bear Mountain, along with several other brands over the years and found them to be the "bulletproof" brand. If we detect a customer is the least bit finicky we immediately direct him/her to Bear Mountain as is has always had the best track record for least complaints - most praise. In our store Bear Mountain is a little more expensive, but only because we bring it in from farther away than other brands, so shipping costs apply. Besides that, it is competitively priced.

    These are the best of three types of pellets I've used. There is signifinactly less ash, less smoke, and the glass stays cleaner.
