    Been testing different pellets trying to get away from the fireside ultra. Maine's choice is not what I expected. Read the reviews and thought I would try them. I do a 3 bag test, haven't gotten through the 2nd bag yet and very dirty with low btu. Having to run my Ashley on high with full air to burn. Alot of ash and black soot on the glass

    These pellets are terrible. They have alot that are too long and also they burn very dirty. Lots of Ash and soot. My stove is a globoy stove and in the 10 years I've owned the stove, these are the first pellets to cause problems.

    I have an Enviro EF1 stove. I've used Maines Choice for the past 2 years and have found them to be better than most other brands used. Minimal ash output, the glass stays relatively clean if i have a hot fire going, If turn the auger down for a cooler fire the glass will start to clog up. As long as I can continue to get these pellets and unless I hear of or find a better choice, I'll continue to use these pellets!

    Bought 2 ton of Maines Choice, from Lowes.
    We have tried many different brands of pellets only to find problems with clumps of ash, black glass, stove stops running, and damaged wet bags. (Which weigh 1000 lbs)
    Since using the Maines Choice, we have had a nice steady heat, no spitting pellets, and very fine ash that doesn't clog up, or clump up. Definitely will purchase more Maines Choice. I recommend this product.

    As a stove designer and manufacturer we have to say that, in the USA ,we have found no better pellet. Outstanding price to quality ratio. Of key importance to our R&D department is consistency of product; iin our experience, no other USA pellet has a more consistent and uniform density, mineral content and moisture content. Knowing that we can count on the quality and that we do not have to test each batch for consistency makes our work easier and helps us tune for even lower emission profiles and higher combustion efficiencies

    Bought 4 tons of Maine's Choice from Lowe's for the first time last heating season and have been very pleased. I run a 10 year old St Croix stove and did not have any issues all last year. Bags all intact with none appearing to have got wet, good heat, some ash but not overly bad. I picked up an additional 2 tons at the end of the season and hoping Lowe's carries the Maine's Choice again this year.

    I used these pellets in 2014 since I live in Maine I wanted to use a Maine pellet. They had way more ash and burned more sluggishly and lower heat output than the Energex I prefer. Corinth is not much better. Come on Maine, with so many trees you'd think we could make a decent pellet. La Crete is expensive but very good, Energex seems to be a good middle ground, economical and good burn.

    I've bought almost 6 bags that have been saw dust . I'm not sure if they somehow got wet or there was an issue with how there compacted . It's disappointing to me to get home and find this . Specially since the price of the bags have almost doubled

    I can't believe these negative reviews! I've been burning Maine Choice for 3 straight years. heat my whole house on 3 tons. great flame, great heat usually run on the lowest setting. I think most of you don't know how to use your stoves. Every different pellet I've tried over the last 7 years requires some adjustment to air and fuel feed. Maybe you should stick with oil..

    Your pellets vary in size. Some are extremely long. Also some appear to be burnt. Those burnt ones are very h hard and jamb up the augur which shuts down the stove.
