    We use the Premium Dry Creek Wood Pellets - always have. Last year they burned great, very little ash and no problems. This year however, we have had nothing but issues. We have always cleaned our stove religiously. The amount of ash we are getting with this years is terrible to the point I have had to have multiple service calls for our stove. I literally have to clean the stove about half way through a bag of pellets because of the ash build up. Tech said everything is good with our stove and suggested that we change pellets because they are burning so dirty - thick black dirty ash. Had to work a 16 hour shift and when I got home, stove was so full of ash it had quit working because of the ash. Never had that problem in the past. Granted they are cheaper than propane or gas, but what I am putting into service calls and repairs is almost making the price the same. There is also a lot of like sawdust in the bags. What have you done to your pellets?

    I get half way through a bag of pellets
    they are powdered and small pellets. I have had the pellet stove for years I think these are the worst pellets ever. I have a ST.Croix stove (Afton BAY)

    Have a Quadra-fire 1200. the Dry creek "PREMIUM" as the call them will not burn well in my stove. The pellet size ranges from 1/4 " to 3" and jam the feeder constantly. the burn pot cokes up at least once per bag, Have to baby sit stove constantly to keep it running. I will not be buying any Dry creek in the near future

    This my first year with burning pellets and I went by the recommendation of others and bought a ton of Dry Creek Premium pellets. I am glad I only bought the one ton, these pellets do not burn well. They advertise the uniform size and this is completely wrong, my pellets are anywhere from 1/4" in length to 2.5". The size difference makes less pellets drop unless you turn the feed rate up. I discovered the only way these burn well is to mix them with another brand. I purchased LaCrete to try a softwood and this has been the saving grace for the Dry Creek Pellets, by mixing them 50/50 I am able to burn the Dry Creek. I also tried my neighbors Barefoot hardwood pellets and they burn great. I hate leaving negative reviews but I can't bring myself to buy the Dry Creek product again.

    I just got a pellet stove and have tried several brands due to availability issues. The Dry Creek seems to create more ash than any other brand. Not sure if anyone else has noticed this.

    Last week was the first time I tried the dry creek pellets in my whitfield stove and they are fantastic. They burn very hot with minimal ash. I have a single floor ranch so the pellet stove heats the entire house. With every other brand my thermostat always says it's 73° and with the dry creek pellets it's 78°. I definitely recommend dry creek pellets.

    Since 2000 we have been burning Dry Creek wood pellets in our Whitfield Stove. This is the only brand we had used until a shortage caught us off guard with only 22 bags left. We went to Home Depot in Salem, MA and were able to find several bags of a pellet called American Wood Fiber. We were a bit nervous trying these new pellets but decided to go cautiously and buy one 5 bags. They had few fines and little ash and seemed to burn alot hotter than Dry Creek. We decided to use these rather than to wait for our stove shop to get a shipment of Dry Creek. We ran out and could find no more. Fortunately our stove shop had gotten a shipment of Dry Creek and we were able to get 40 bags. We like Dry Creek because it burns well, minimal ash and little dust. It doesn't see to burn as hot as American Wood fiber but, it work very well in our stove. It cost us $6.50 a bag compared to American Wood Fiber which was $5.58 a bag.

    Do not use Old Domion. They really messed up up my Harmon and my stainless steel flue pipe. A bad choice. You really have to be hard up to use these. They shouldn't be on the market.
