If you know of retailers who have wood pellets in stock then please post the dealers on my facebook page. There is a huge shortage of pellets so let's help everybody who is looking.
Please Keep In Mind the Following;
1.Include the make and or model of stove.
2.Over exaggerated and over the top comments will be deleted.
3.Try to be as objective as possible along with considering the fact that you may not have cleaned your stove in years.
4.If you do not practice, at least, monthly cleaning then please don't bother leaving any feedback.
I have a Harman stove and I do clean it once or twice a month. I also take entire stove apart at the end of each season for a cleaning. This is the first time I bought premium wood pellets. I bought them from the home depot in allegany NY. The pelletts were stored out side and that kind of supprizes me because right on the bag it states store in a cool dry place. Needless to say many of the bags had water damage and when the pellets dried they turned into saw dust my stove was clean but now it is not because of pellets stove goes out and I have to clean it daily. I know its not the pellet companies fault it is home depot s fault. Maybe the pellet company should use a different store that will store pellets in a cool DRY place like the bag says.Report
In continuing to try differnet bands of pellets, I purchased three bag from my local TSC. As always when i am testing I screened my pellets with a 1/4" screen box. This produced roughly 2 cups of fines for all three bags. They produced average heat when compared to other brands. However, the ash content was much higher and I did have to clean my firebox and glass daily. I would purchases again if it was the end of the seasson and I did nto want to get another ton of something better.

I have a US stove 5500M. I picked up three bags from my local TSC for testing. I sifted three bags via a ¼” mesh screen box which yielded roughly 2 cups of fines. The pellets them self produced average heat while running my stove low. After 24hours the burn pot was full of ash so that was a letdown. I did not have any clinkers. The end result if that I would not use these pellets again.
paid $4.59/ bag
