  • Admin Review: August - 2017 - Looking forward to burning some this year!! I always thought these were great pellets
    Oct - 2017 - GOOD GOD I GOT BAG THAT MISSED QUALITY CONTROL. I have never in my 8 years of doing this website seen ash so high. Check out the picture below of the ash only after 4 hours of burn. On a positive, These pellets put out a ton of heat and I have always liked burning them in the past. However, Londonderry Home Depot! Don't get them there. Its a bad batch.

    How do I recycle the bags?
    What does #/4 \mean in the bags mean?
    Do I put them w/plastic grocery bags? Or w/my regular recycling?

    I've been buying about 12 bags of fireside ultra every week or so for the last 12 weeks. Just bought another 12 bags and after opening the 1st one found the product appears completely different - the pellet color changed from pretty dark (darker than the pic on this site to very light (lighter than the pic on this site), indicating they changed the wood source. Doesn't seem right to do that. Don't know how they will burn. But does anyone know how to contact the manufacturer?

    Decent heat, very few fines per bag, very little soot on glass, but much more ash this year than the last two. All in all though I would buy again and am satisfied that these Home Depot pellets are a good value at a decent product.

    This is my third year burning Fireside and I'm very disappointed. I have measured pellets up to 1 3/4 inches long. These pellets are causing jams going down into my auger opening. They have a quality issue.

    My stove is an Enviro. I bought 4 tons of Fireside Ultra this year. Burns well. Put out good heat. Produces lots of soot and ash. Have to shut down stove every other day to empty the burn pot. The ash forms like a brick. Glass in stove become pitch black. I cleaned chimney as well as all air ways in stove. Purchased 2 bags of Green Team Platinum..hardwood 2 days ago to compare. Apples and oranges: There's no comparison. The Green Team Platinum is far superior. Have been burning the Green Team 2 days. No ash in burn pot. Will have to go back to Ultra. Purchased at HomeDepot in Littleton. Will go back to Green Team at Lowes next season. I know 1 product is hard wood while the other is soft wood. Might be the difference.

    1/2/18 burned 2 pallets (out of 4) in my Napoleon NPI45 Insert so far this heating season. The FSU pellet produces good heat. I would guess the ash content is average to many other pellets. I clean my insert 2x per week. Satisfied with the heat/price/delivery.

    This our 3rd year of having a pellet stove. My husband heard good things about this brand so we figured we would give it a try. We purchased 3 pallets! Unfortunately, they cause so much ash that we will most likely not buy them again. There are times that we can't even start the stove unless we clean the entire area which has never been a problem. Very disappointed and not returning at the moment because they are packed in our garage and can't imagine how we would return this many bags!

    Thats Funny you say that, I bought 10 of these at the end of 2016 from Depot in Manchester and LOVED Them! Very Low ash I have the same stove the XXV.
    So I bought a ton this year 2017 from Depot in Concord. 1/2 the ton was great low ash 2nd 1/2 of the ton was garbage HUGE ash piles like in your Pic.
