    I burned 3 ton of your pellets last year in my heatilator cab50 with great reviews minimal ash and i could go almost a week without clening the class or the ash. Now I bought another 3 ton this year but now my glass is dirty after 24 hours and i have to clean the ashes out every three days. Iam not doing anything different. why is the pellets so different form year to year?

    While these are higher on the ash side they do produce a good amount of heat. I have a CAB50 and have to clean it more often than if I run energex or one of the better brands.

    2 pellet stove Bosca and Europa. Used many types of pellets. Most good pellets. Pick up 1 ton of green supreme at Tracktor Supply to finish of the season. Ash, Ash, Ash. I clean my units everyday usually with about 2 cups of ash but with green supreme about a gal. Of ash per bag. Pellets are light indicating soft wood and lots of dust in bag. The burn fast and produce large lumps of ash stuck in pot. I would only use as last resort.

    Started burning Green Supreme for the first time yesterday in my Harmon P68. They seem to burn ok but produce an unpleasant odor. I'm thinking of returning the remaining bags and turning the electric heat back on until I can get another brand. I have burned Barefoot, Lignetics, Stove Chow and Tractor Supply pellets without this problem.

    Picked these up at Home Depot. We have used many brands of pellets. These are hands down the worst weve used! Burn pot chokes with ash in 8 hours!!
    DONT BUY.

    bought 10 bags at tractor supply and it was all they had, my stove is an american harvest from tractor supply, these were the best pellets i have ever burned wish i could find more retailers of these in my area

    Used these last year. Not bad. This year around December the Ash content quadrupled. My ash pan in my accentra insert , is FULL in two days. When I use my Vermonts, I get an Egg Cup Full in 5 Days.
    They changed something to cheapen it up.

    I have a Harmon pellet stove that I have had for 8 years. I clean my stove completely every year and every week or so during the heating season. I bought 2 tons of pellets for this season. I bought these pellets based upon all the positive comments.
    These pellets supposedly have a very low ash content. I dont think a pellet with a low ash content should require removing ashes daily from the burning area of the stove.
    I have NEVER had to empty my ash bucket twice in a season. However, this year with the "low ash" green supreme pellets, my ash bucket has filled up twice and is half full again for the first ton of pellets.

    I will NEVER buy nor recommend these Green Supreme "quality" pellets again.
    These pellets may be better used in an outdoor fireplace where you would burn any kind of wood, including softwood.

    Green Supreme pellets were bought at Lowes because they were the only pellets available when I needed to buy 1 ton. Two Home Depots and twoTractor Supplys were all out of pellets. I used GS pellets two years ago and didn't have any issues burning them in my Harman XXV. This 2014 batch seems to be not as hot burning and has more ash. The unburned pellets (in bag) seem to be lighter in color than others. This winter has been a very cold and I started out burning a ton of Stove Chow (Nov), then a ton of Green Team (Dec.), then a ton of Pres to -Log (in Jan./early Feb). The recently purchased Green Supreme (GS) pellets just can not match the heat output and lower ash output of the other 3 pellets brands....Sorry Green Supreme (NE Pellet) but I'm just being fair. Lesson learned-- next heating season I will purchase my 4-5 tons of one of the other 3 brands from the box stores in August/Sept. No more scrambling around the state last minute for pellets. BTW the best pellet that I have burned in my Harmon is the one from British Columbia....Okanogan Pellet (sp?) made from fir trees. It's a Super Premium pellet, a bit pricey but very good in every aspect.

    Not good at all. Clogged burnpot and low heat output even after adjusting the draft to maximum. I measured the heat with an IR thermometer by pointing the laser onto third room air fin down from the top. Semi-scientific report below.
    Stove: USSC 5502 on HR-1 Auto (Low)
    Outside Temp: 10 degrees
    Temp: 160
    Ash: Medium
    Burnpot: Clogged!

    I have a King stove 5500 from tractor supply, we have tried several types of pellets and these seem to burn the best, low ash and seems to be the best heat. I clean the stove once a week including vent pipe. My house is almost 2000 sq feet and was 20 below several days and only had it turned up to heat setting 3 and the house stayed 75 down stairs and about 70 upstairs. and I have VERY little insulation in attic. very pleased with these pellets. have burned just shy of 3 tons since october.

  • Comment Link mike Wednesday, 05 February 2014 15:58 posted by mike

    This is my first year with a pellet stove, I bought a new us stove 5500 and I figured I would buy higher quality pellets since the stove I got had mixed reviews. I got 3 tons of different pellets to see which worked best in the stove. I got cubex, lacrete, and wood pellet co. They all worked good, cubex gave me the most heat but they all roughly gave me the same amount of ash and clinkers. I would clean the stove every 2-3 days or every 6-8 bags. So I needed more pellets and I tried green supreme pellets just to see how they compared to more expensive pellets and I was really surprised how well they work!! I measured the heat output of them and it gave more heat than lacrete and wood pellet co and just a little less than the cubex and it looks to make slightly less ash so far. I would recommend these pellets, maybe a cheap stove likes cheap pellets

    My stove - Quadra Fire Classic Bay. I used these pellets last year and they were decent. So I bought two tons of them this year and can't help but feel I am "stuck" with them. They must have changed the formula because they give off a lot of ash and NO HEAT. My stove has always heated my whole (1750 sq ft) with no problems. I keep the thermo set at 72. With the Green Supreme, I have hard time getting above 70 degrees when it's cold out. Will not buy again

    I have a Quadrafire pellet stove for 9 years. Home Depot delivered 3 tons of Green Supreme to our home. I have never had such poor quality pellets, ever. I use to be able to clean the stove about every 5 days. With these pellets, it's daily. I must run the stove on low, or I'd probably have to clean it hourly. Today after vacuuming the stove, I left the house for 45 minutes, and when I returned, the entire house was thick with smoke. Thank God I wasn't gone longer. The stove is off. I'm afraid to run it. I contacted Home Depot to report this potentially dangerous product, and they claim that I'm their first complaint. I'm going to advise them to read these comments. Terrible quality! Buyer beware.

  • Comment Link Dave Friday, 31 January 2014 00:43 posted by Dave

    DO NOT BUY THESE PELLETS!!! I used to love them, they burned great last year I went through 4 tons. I started the year with 2 tons of these this year and they are terrible. After investigating I found a lot of people complaining of the same issue. I switched to natures heat and love them. Sorry green supreme, you lost me as a customer...

    I bought 1/2 ton here in Eastern PA. They burn FINE in my Harman Accentra insert. They seem to run a little cooler, which matches Robyn's measurements. It could also be that the heat transfer surfaces are getting dirty as we've been cranking here on this side of the country. In any event, I turned up the feed rate and they're holding steady.

    Purchased 6 bags of Green Supreme Hardwood pellets at a local Home Depot just to try them out. On my third bag and can't say they are the best pellets I've tried this year in my AGP pellet insert stove. Not much of a flame, lots of ash with unburnt fuel and clinkers,

    I have purchased 3 tons of green supreme in Dec 2013. They work great in my fireplace when the weather is above 20 degrees. Having this polar vortex has really caused issues once the temp is under 20 the unit does not seem to provide enough heat. The unit i have is a Quadrafire Edge 60. there is supposed to be 60k btu's coming out to heat a room that is 400sqft and it cannot pass 52 degrees. I am going to try a better quality pellet today and see what are the results. My current cleaning is almost daily on the unit and every 3 days on the heat exchangers.

    Hi I have a Kozi Ksh120 for 3 yr ran the supreme green for 2 seasons ran good this year not good, clinkers filling the burn pot very low heat output cleaning the burn pot twice a day after talking with several people I wondered I wondered if the binder they used if they did use a binder did they change the binder or increased the amount they used why I ask this I had to take the burn pot out and scrap it to get the ash that was stuck to the pot. Almost seems to be a large amount of dust in each bag

    I have a Pel Pro pellet stove ... The Green Supreme Pellets have worked fine in my stove for years. This year I have had a problem with the quality of the pellet. Even though they still work in the stove, the issue I have had is that many bags have had pellets clumped together in the middle of the bag, and usually the bags that have this issue have been in the middle of the pile. The store where I purchase my pellets has has other customers with the same issue, and of course the store has made things right with the customers. I am wondering if at the time of production and packaging of the pellets there may have been a moisture issue. I had a bag last night that when I dumped it into the bin I found a clump about the size of a baseball. I also think this year the pellets are not as good heat producers, and they take very long time to light.

    I have been burning wood pellets for ten years in my Breckwell p-2000 series pellet stove that is professionaly cleaned yearly and cleaned after every 25-30 bags burned and came across these pellets this year. Although they don't produce high heat, they don't have a lot of the dust in the bags that tend to clog a lot of stoves. Not the best but not the worst I've tried.

  • Comment Link Phil Saturday, 28 December 2013 22:20 posted by Phil

    Burned a ton of Green supreme in November. Heat was on the low end of average,with lots of ash, and dust. Ash bin had to be emptied every 3 days where stove chow goes about 8 days with more heat. The GS had so much sawdust that the feed auger in my Harmon started to make a hi pitched noise that went away with Stove chow. I'll wont buy GS again unless I can't find anything else.

    We've had a Traeger Pellet furnace since 1992 and this is 1st time we've had a problem with pellets, Green Supreme, jamming the cup that feeds to the auger. Almost purchased a new motor, glad we didn't as works fine with other pellets. We purchased 5 ton and are now in process of exchanging most, thank you Lowes for allowing this. We also have a pellet stove in garage which seems to accommodate these pellets as there is no cup system.

    I purchased 4 ton of Green Supreme this year because I had fairly good results last year. The pellets this year are horrible. I have a 2008hard quadrifire insert. I am cleaning the firepot every two or three days and cleaning the stove every other time I empty the pot. It is horrible! The firepot gets full of hard clumps and plugs the airholes. The flame is lazy and high. Do not buy these pellets!

    Bought a Ton from HD here in CT for $219/ton. A lot of ash and clinkers. I'm basically cleaning the stove every day. Heat output not good either. HD had a "super" premium pellet for like $260/ton which I'm going to try next. QuadraFire Castille Insert.

    I bought 2 bags of Stove Chow from H.D. Kingston store to see how they would burn. After two days of testing this is my observations. Using an IR thermometer and the Thelin stove (because that is on continuous burn) I took readings on the glass door and just under the hot air manifold.

    The Green Supreme: Day 1: Glass door: 331*F - 340*F
    Hot air manifold: 274*F - 278*F

    The Stove Chow Day 1: Glass door: 452*F - 460*F
    Hot air manifold: 352*F - 357*F

    The Green Supreme Day 2: Glass door: 311*F - 325*F
    Hot air manifold: 238*F - 249*F

    Stove Chow Day 2: Glass door: 436*F - 447*F
    Hot air manifold: 333*F - 348*F

    I burned the Green Supreme during the day with outside temperatures in the low 50's, the room temperature staying around 72*F.

    I burned the Stove Chow overnight with the outside temperatures in the low 30's and the room temperature staying around 77*F.

    The Stove Chow also had far less fines in the bag (the consistency of granulated garlic). The Green Supreme has a lot of very fine dust along with the sawdust and wood chips.

    I'll use the Stove Chow for cold nights and cold spells and use the Green Supreme (or another brand that doesnt burn so hot) for those days in the 40's and 50's. 77*F is too hot so I installed two corner doorway fans to direct the ceiling heat up the stairs. The outside temperature here has been in the mid teens to mid twenties over the weekend and the main floor is about 72* in the morning and about 74* during the day using Stove Chow.

    I am fairly new to burning pellets. This is my third season with a Quadrafire Mt. Vernon insert on a thermostat and have been using Green Supreme from Lowes. The first year I used 3-1/2 ton and last year I burned about 4-1/2 ton.
    I run all of my pellets over a 4 ft. long hardware cloth with 1/4" mesh hooked up to a wet vac blowing from the top and sucking from the bottom. This eliminates almost 100% of the fines, wood chips and smaller pieces.
    I had to clean out the ashes about every 3 to four days because of the ash build up. I was happy with the heat output (I dont have anything to compare it to). This year I put an addition on my house and added a Thelin Parlor stove that runs continuously. Because of the small burn chamber I have to clean the Thelin every other day, the glass gets covered with brown ash within hours of start up (this is the stove design) but seems to put out quite a bit of heat.

    I guy that I work with, who has been burning pellets quite a bit longer than I have bought 5 ton of Green Supreme from Home Depot last year and took them back because they wouldnt burn for him. I bought mine from Lowes and had no problem. I even had a ton and a half left over that I covered with a tarp for the summer (I keep my pellets outside) and they burned good except for 4 bags I lost to swelling on the bottom row of the open pallet. This year Lowes wants 275 a ton compared to 209 last year, for the Green Supreme. Im thinking about getting Stove Chow (209 a ton at H.D.) because Im nervous about buying Green Supreme form Home Depot, they may be leftovers from last year.

    I noticed a difference in the two stoves. The Mt. Vernon insert heats the pellets that are in the hopper so they are real dry by the time they hit the burn pot, whereas the Thelin doesnt seem to move heat into the hopper so moisture may be an issue with it. Tomorrow I'll pick up a couple bags of the Stove Chow and give them a try.

    I have a Bosca pellet stove purchased last year. Love it and it heats the house well. I clean it out at least once a week. Have been burning Maine premium pellets. This year I went to tractor supply and purchased a few bags of Green Supreme that was manufactured in NH/NY. Started my stove yesterday for the first time. (it was completely cleaned at the end of last season)
    The moment the first bag began burning, I could smell a strong smoky odor. Almost like a wood stove. Never had this last year. Next thing I knew the glass was covered in black soot. We own a bird, and they are sensitive to smells. Wife came home and made me turn it off it was so strong. Additionally, there was very little heat put out. I let it cool and cleaned it out. As I was pulling out the unburned pellets, I came up with pieces of rubber, same size/diameter as the pellets. Cylindrical in shape. reddish in color. No wonder why it smelled! Wonder how much of that we breathed in before we shut it down. Not sure if something went wrong with machine during manufacturing and a few pieces fell into the bag, or if a lot of people have found this. Please check your bags when you open them! Went to Tractor Supply and purchased the Maine Premium again. They said to bring all my unopened bags of Green Supreme back and they will reimburse. Gladly!

    We burned at least 20 bags of Green Supreme in winter 2012. This was the first year with our Quadrafire MT Vernon. We burned through the 2 ton of Green Gold we had purchased and we bought bags as needed to finish out the season, about another ton (50 bags) in all of various brands that the BB stores had available. Of the various brands we burned, this was probably the best of them. The burn was acceptable, not the hottest pellets I have ever burned, but quite acceptable. These produced a bit more ash then the Green gold did, forcing me to do a minor clean of the fire chamber every 2-3 days as opposed to the 3-4 days with the Green Gold. These also crudded up my glass far more quickly and more severely then the Green gold, leaving a thick film that non the less came off with simple glass cleaner and a bit more elbow grease. This is taking into account the relative moisture content of the pellets due to where they have been stored at the BB stores. We burned at least 20 and maybe a few more bags then that of these pellets because of the various brands, these proved to be among the best in heat output and overall cleanliness. These were an ok go to pellet when we ran out of our main supply. I should note that they are not nearly as good as the Green gold proved to be in our Mt Vernon. This year we have 4 tons of fuel, two ton of green gold and two ton of instant heat so we should not need to run to the BB stores for pellets at all. With the instant heat going for $214 a ton, I would not go out of my way to buy Green Supreme, but they did prove to be a suitable tide me over.

    Hate to be contrary but I LOVE these pellets. I suspect that at least some of the conflicting reviews result from there being 2 manufacturing plants and obviously multiple lots from each. BUT . . . I burned two tons last year (at @209/ton @ HD) and loved them. For the price, the combination of clean burn, low ash and higher heat than other big box brands sold me on them. I bought 3 tons for this season and loved them just as much.

    I ended up burning all 3 tons plus all my assorted leftovers for a total of a little over 4 tons this year and will buy Green Supremes again. I should note that I just picked up 6 bags of Okanagan Black Hills just in case the nights stay cold and they are great . . . but $7 a bag at our local dealer.

    Definitely noticed a change in these pellets from fall to now. Bought two tons in the fall and they burned great, no issues. Went to Lowes a month ago and they just had a new shipment come in. Picked up another ton and found them to be poorer quality for sure. Noticed an immediate different smell to the pellet, less heat, and a lot more ash.
    Hopefully just got a bad batch, but afraid to try them again in my Harman XXV.

    I have a lopi leyden stove. These pellets had above average ash, and way below average heat. I believe a hair dryer would give off more heat. I am avoiding these pellets.
