Please include the model of your stove in your review of these pellets.
I was not in the market for pellets but when I saw Lowe's was selling a ton for $199 plus my 10% military discount and free delivery, I could not pass them up. I bought 4 ton not even asking what manufacturer they were. They delivered Natures Own. I only have burned one bag so far and I like them. I have been burning Fireside Ultra because that is what Home Depot sells. The pellet size this year on them was tiny but they burned fine. The Nature's Own pellet size is larger. Pellets vary from year to year, even the same brand. I burn about 8 ton a season. But this season only 3 so far due to warm weather. I have 2 pellet stoves, and Enviro Mini 30k btu that I burn 24/7 and a Vista Flame 70k btu that I only light up when it is in the single digits.Report
This was a really good pellet in my stove. Nice heat and very low ash. I would definitely buy again. St Croix York pellet stove insertReport
Great pellet, great heat output, little ash, very few fines, and no clinkers. This is by far my first choice in the box economy rated wood pellet. Purchased at Lowes. My stove is a St Croix York insert.Report
As we all know year to year pellets change. Here are my thoughts for this year (14-15) season.
Good strong bags
Small pellet size
Average fines (buildup in burn pot is hard though)
Above average heat
Bought 20 bags of these from the local lowes. Fairly uninspiring pellets for the price (4.29/bag). Every bag quite dusty and dozens of wood chips in with the pellets. Assuming these will jam my auger at some point so I've been trying to pick them out. Average to high amount of ash, I have to clean every 2-3 days with a smaller stove and ash tray. Using about 1.5-2 bags per day. Seem to take a while to ignite as well, perhaps these bags got exposed to moisture at some point? I'll look elsewhere for my next batch. I'm fairly new to pellet stoves so it could also be that I'm still learning how to work the stove somewhat but seem to get better results with stove chow.Report

Lowes: Natures own.. gives ok heat burns quick though, few clinkers, very sooty $4.12 a bag
home depot- stove chows- best of the bunch. very hot, burns slow low ash and soot clinker free. 4.50 a bag
wal mart: natures heat by pennington
real good heat modeate ash and soot a clinker or 2. Makes the outside of your home smell like burning cow crap, weird smell, other than that its my second choice. $5.00 a bag
Burned great in my Harman Accentra. Better than average heat and no more ash than expected. Burned better than the Maine Woods I burned. Pellet size was small and consistent. Not much dust in the bag. Glass stayed reasonably clean. Probably going to pick up more. Great deal for 219/ton at Lowes in my opinion.Report
