I'm back in a new house with a Harman Accentra!  I could not be happier than to bring you the best of the best wood pellets for 2017.  I have been on a bit of a hiatis for the past 2 years after selling my home with the Lopi Leyden. (awesome stove)  But now we are back to bring you the best reviews possible for the heating season of 2017-18.  

Best Heating Wood Pellets for 2017

Here is the list of pellets I have received so far and my pics of, what I think, are going to be the best of 2017 not in any particular order;


EasyBlaze pellets hit the scene this year in a huge way.  These pellets were fantastic!  Heat output was amazing and the ash was almost non exestent.  Both the Softwood and the Blend were very impressive.  You can find a retailer by visiting their website and submitting your zip code.  They will email you back pretty quickly.  I have seen these pellets for sale as far north as Southern Massachusetts.

Northern Warmth Doug Fir & Supreme Doug Fir Pellets

 You can't argue with those west coast Douglas Fir wood pellets.  These trees, especially any old growth trees, really make for a fantastic pellet.  You can learn more about these pellets along with finding a retailer of these pellets using The Northern Warmth dealer locatator on their brand new website here....  Northern Warmth Pellets

La Crete Wood Pellets

I have been burning these super sweet pellets for years now.  I alsway get a few samples mailed out to me.  They have been a tried and true softwood pellet that puts out great heat and has low ash.  The only down side to these pellets are the bags.  At times I find them too thin.  However, by saving on added costs of packaging material, you are getting a much higher quality pellet for less money which is usually passed on to the end user.

Northern Warmth Purley Pine

These are on the low end of cost in the Northern Warmth line up but I was super impressed.  Very, Very low ash and super heat output.  

Hamer's Hot Ones

Out of Ohio, Hamer puts out a super awesome pellet.  Open the bag and take a wiff of what reminds me of a newly laid oak floor in the house.  These burn super hot and have low ash.  They are nice and dense and feel like little rocks falling through your finger.  The hopper hang ups are almost non existant with these super dense and hot pellets.

Golden Fire Wood Pellets

You won’t find another pellet that is dried to  industry leading low moisture content of less than 2.5%, and unprecedented average of only 1.9%! Less moisture means you don’t have to burn off excess water in the pellets which results in more heat, heating your home faster, and an extremely low ash content that makes it easier to cleanup.

    Lopi Leyden user here from CT. I'm going on 5 years with this stove, mostly burning the Turmans. Two questions:

    1) Did you have any issues with your Lopi stove? I vac mine out about once per week, doing a semi-disassembly from the front every few weeks to get into the guts. I've replaced the ignitor once and the two top metal inserts once due to warpage. Gonna get a new set again this summer. Did you have any issues with your Lopi during ownership?

    2) Pellets: I've been using the Turmans almost exclusively for the entire time that I've owned the stove. I buy my pellets from ... a great local company that stores the pallets until I need them. I just received a special spring mixed pallet from them with Turman, Barefoot, Country Boy, Okanagan and Northern Warmth. I've tried them all and plan to stick with Turmans. Country Boy was a close second but there is too much dust when emptying and I don't like the hand-hold when flipped over to dump out. I also like the Barefoots but don't like the idea of multiple wood types so I'm going to stick with Turman, the most expensive pellet available from my distributor at $309/ton. Thoughts?

    Thanks for your great website! It helped me pick out the Turmans when we bought our Lopi and I've been happy ever since with the choice.

    Is there concern with the types of wood pellets (soft wood v. Hard wood )and creosote residue in stove pipes and / or flues?
    We have a Harmon XXX and reside in Pennsylvania.

    Have a Harmann xxx stove. Tried to burn a ton of New England premium pellets last winter. Gave up after 15 bags. Worst pellets ever. So much dust and carbon build up. Anyone want a 1/2 ton of pellets? Come and get them.
