    After burning almost a ton of Curran Blend, Im happy to see the pile diminishing. Heat is ok, ash is unreal, minimal clinkers. My Englander doesnt like em. Barefoots and Lignetics are my favs this winter. Hamers are too hot for our application.

    We burn an Enviro m55. Great stove that can heat our entire 2700ft in the right circumstances. Used curran pellets for the first time on a 5 bag run. Truly are the worst I've ever used. Am used to burning Cubex or Canawick hardwood pellets or Eagle Valley or Okanagan softwood, all are very good. Great bright strong flame - so optimum btu. Curran have weak cool flames and produce easily twice the ash which is very grainy and tarry. Terrible pellets in my opinion. Never again.

    I have a Rika Integra 2 stove. These pellets are far WORSE than pellets at Lowes or Home Depot. The ash has to be cleaned out twice daily. There is so much ash the pellets back up into the auger after a few hours. We bought a ton last week and are SO disappointed! DO NOT BUY

    We have a Harmon Accentra insert. It was not inexpensive but has performed very well for a number of years. This year we bought 4 tons of Curran pellets. We will never buy them again. They produce much more ash and not enough heat. They fouled the pst sensor in the stove after just two months. We are going back to Green Supreme next year.

    I've used the blend for the past two years. This year I bought 4 tons of pellets and was running low and bought another ton. this last ton is nothing but ash and cleaning the stove two to three times a day. My chimney vent out the side of the house and for the first time I have a black soot spot under it. The last ton had a new style bag and apparently a new formula. I have a quadra fire mt. vernon stove and never had this problem. I went to tractor supply and bought 4 bags of there brand and what a difference. clean and hot. My conclusion is that something has changed with Curran and not for the better. STAY AWAY

    I have been conducting a test burn this week (as temps where I am are very cold) because the Vermont Pellets I use are completely sold out in my area. The company I buy pellets from sells the Hardwood/Softwood blend.

    My observations have been that these produce a TON of ash. About 4 times what I'm used to per bag compared to the Vermont Softwood pellets. I have to clear out the stove 2 times a day during these super cold days, and there is over a cup and a half each time left behind. They aren't nearly as hot as I anticipated them being, but do an ample job.

    My conclusion (other than I will be ordering 6 tons of Vermont Pellets in advance this summer), so that they're okay for secondary heat, but not something I'd use as a primary heat source. The ash is out of control, and can be a headache. I'll be looking at some other softwood options as an alternative.
