    This winter has been long. we have used 5 ton of Somerset Pellets so far, we are about to run out and can't find any pellets around the Cynthiana, Kentucky area. Any suggestions ????

    I've used 4 brands of wood pellets this winter. This one is clearly the best I've used. Puts out high amount of heat. Hardly any clinkers at all. Very happy. Run a heatilator cab 50.

    Am interested in becoming a wholesale/retail dealer in Walton New York. We would be interested in buying 40 ton per wk this summer. Please let us know if this is possible. We also have shown interest in Ligistic pellets and are awaiting their replay. However, we feel that two and three different types of pellets would be beneficial. We have tested the temp of different pellets and ash and your pellets have our intrest. Thank You. Clayton Stanton, 6074348092

    I use a Magnum corn/pellet stove for the last 5 years. I used Kentucky Kernel pellets at first. They burn very good, but expensive. The pellets burned great till it warmed up in January at everything sweat and then they didn't burn at good. The following 2 years I burned corn and then ended up blending corn and pellets where I found that was the best for me. Corn prices went too high so I went to straight wood pellets. Burned a brand from Big "R" and Tractor Supply, reasonably priced, can't remember the brand name. Came in white bag. Didn't like that brand. Very dirty, sooty, and didn't burn good no matter the amount of air and didn't get the heat. Tried a few bags of Starlight from Lowes and didn't care for them either. This year I found the local Tractor Supply selling Somerset wood pellets and bought 3 pallets after checking out the reviews and haven't regretted it. I just bought the fourth and last pallet today from Tractor Supply. Somerset burns hotter and cleaner. I get more heat from these pellets compared to the others used. I feel I get the usual ash build up. I still clean stove once a week, two at the most to get the most heat from my stove. Clean fire box every 12-14 hours on number 3 setting where I was emptying fire box last year every 6-8 hours at the number two setting. Somerset may be a little more expensive than what I used last year, but its been worth it. I hope Tractor Supply gets them back next year.

    I have a King/Ashley 551M pellet stove that I purchased last year. Used pellets from TSC and they were horrible didn't burn good and had so much ash had to clean the stove every day! I found Somerset pellets at Lowes and loved them. they burn so clean and hot. this year went to TSC and they had Somerset pellets and I bought what they had. They don't have anymore and I don't know anyone in this area that is a distributor. We are now using Greenway Oak pellets and they don't burn good and the ash is horrible. The stove has to be cleaned every 2 to 3 days. Sure do miss the Somerset pellets only had to clean once or twice a month and they lasted longer. Is there a dist. in this area please let me know! I love your pellets they are the best!

    Have an Englander Sumner's Heat stove. I get pellt creep, even on the lowest setting, no matter what brand of pellet I use. The only difference is, how long it tajes, and with Somersets, it takes significantly longer. They are (in 2013, at least) all hardwood, and yet lower priced than Lowe's other hardwoid pellets. Burn pretty hot, too. Best pellet for tge price, by far.

    I have a new englander pellet dove that I've use for 3 seasons. I purchased it new on a spring close out. It heats decent but does not light every time on its own. I've also replaced the bottom motor and auger the second season. I like the stove but I would look for a better brand if I were to buy again. I got it for 1/2 price so I'm not going to complain. I thought I might have gotten a lemon but my dad has had the same problems with his.

    I started using these in 2009 here in Indiana. They were at Menards. I loved them. Hands down the best . They beat soft woods any day. My stove would get so hot I was scared. My neighbor used them in his and it tripped off on hi limit (HI TEMP) I burned them with corn and the flame was great. The heat was sometimes UNBEARABLE. Cant get them any more. No dealers here

    This is our 3rd year buying and using somerset pellets. The first 2 year they burnt great. This year they are AWEFUL! I have contacted the company to see if they stand behind their product. We are having to clean the stove and ash pot daily where in the past we easily went 4-5 days. Very disappointing.

  • Comment Link Tim Saturday, 23 March 2013 17:59 posted by Tim

    I've burned Somerset for the last three years and think they are the
    best. Agree with the poster that said this years batch is worse than
    past years. This is the first year I've had buildup in the burn pot
    and more ash than past years. Still good though but not super
    this year. Burn in a Breckwell insert.

  • Comment Link Linda Hill Tuesday, 19 March 2013 18:12 posted by Linda Hill

    We have burnt lignetics, boo to them. Clinkers with a terrible burn. We have been burning Okanogan, very nice hot clean pellet to burn,can run the pellet stove for a 14 day cycle before cleaning to stove. The glass door is a tad ashey, but for the constant filling of it, not a worry in the world.Cannot get Okanogan pellets on the east coast right now. So, Trying these somerset pellets out, we will see.

    Bought a used Hastings St. Croix the season befor this. Had all kinds of problems with soot and clinkers. Had to do a serious cleaning every day. Stove repair expert told me they're a tempermental stove. Was burning Green Supreme pellets from Lowe's. This year bought 4 tons of pellets from Lowe's and discovered they were Somerset. Hadn't heard of them but now can go 3-4 days between cleanings. My stove guy affirmed that Somerset is the best and I was lucky to get them. Hope Lowe's has them again next season. Plan to buy a Harman P68 (new) this summer so I don't have to worry so much about a finicky stove and can go longer without filling the hopper. Hastings is working fine now but I don't know what I did to make it so. Think when I closed the air intake slightly the stove started burning clean and for long periods of time, but not sure. Just the blind squirrel thing. Did discover almost inaccessible air passages to clean with bent dairy brush.
    Anyhow, I'm loving the Somerset pellets.

  • Comment Link Jared Sunday, 24 February 2013 19:26 posted by Jared

    I am new to the pellet world, I have a Breckwell P23 Insert, I have read the manual through and through and would have to say I have a small case of OCD when it comes to maintenance of my pellet stove.

    I started the season off with Somerset Pellets and was spoiled, loved them, burnt very hot and clean, very little fines if any. Due to local store having New England and no one having Somerset anymore I went with a ton of the New England. Wish I would of searched out and purchased more of the somerset.

    I will definitely be looking for Somerset come next season. Great Pellet

    We have always used Somerset pellet and had great heat and limited ash but this year there is so much ash. We have a Quadrafire stove which we clean daily and the amount of ash is unbelievable. We are very disappointed in the quality of the product this year.

  • Comment Link Merv48 Saturday, 26 January 2013 15:21 posted by Merv48

    I have an Englander Summer's Heat. Didn't like the Somerset precisely because they are so small, I got what I call pot creep, where the fire starts out small and lively, but after several hours, the pot is full and pellets don't seem to burn completely. Have to keep removing ash and clinkers, then finally shut stove down so it burns what's in the pot (doesn't burn completely). Have the opening in the hopper adjusted as small as possible. Other brands from Lowe's are much longer, thought this would help with the creep problem, but doesn't seem to matter what brand I use. And, this is on the lowest setting. Didn't notice any more heat with Somerset, either.

    Tractor Supply Sells Somerset in Marysville and Bellefontaine Ohio. So if you have one near you, inquire there.

    We have a Amaizablze, Model 7100 corn/pellet stove. I clean my stove regularly. I never had a problem with my stove until I tried Lee Energy pellets. Somersets are by far the best wood pellets we have used. I was getting ours at Menards and they dropped the Somersets. I bought the pellets they switched to, Lee Energy, and they are terrible. I took the left over bags back. 38 in all. TSC now has the Somersets and I drove there directly and purchased a ton. Boy am I glad we are back to the Somersets again. The heat they give off and the minimal ash is second to none. I learned the hard way.

    Somerset pellets are easily the best pellet I have ever burned since getting my Quadrafire Castille in 2007. Amazing heat output, nearly zero ash and they were priced fair. I would be burning them right now if my local retailers chose to sell them.

  • Comment Link Tristan Friday, 19 October 2012 16:07 posted by Tristan

    As good as ever! Low ash, high heat, few fines. The best part is the great small and consistent size of the pellets.

    Load of Somerset just ordered for Lowes in East Amherst NY (22 ton). I just ordered four pallets at $191 per. Should arrive by Sep 27th get em while their hot. Can't guarantee the price but they should give them to you at a good deal.

    I have an Englander stove p25 and burn Somerset pellets. I have tried all the types of pellets in the Sountern Ohio are. Somerset is by far the very hottest and the best! I even use some corn mixed in on really cold periods. Clean your stoves people! You're saving money and so the labor once a week is well worth it. This is not a gas or electric heated furnace. I heat 2600 sqft house with a 1500 sqft stove. 2 bags a day some days 3 bags. Clean your stove people! Do your research and save money!

    I have a USSC 6039 the somerset burn better than most they are very dens so more air in the pot is better and as far as fines they have very little. I will try to buy some in bulk if the will sell to me 10 + tons. They are a very hot burner so that is a plus and ash is very low

  • Comment Link Randall Tuesday, 20 December 2011 15:50 posted by Randall

    Love my Somerset pellets, best pellets I have ever burned, Low ash, low fines with high heat output, actually believe they made them better this year for 2011. In 2010 and 2009 had the low fuel trim set on the high side burning at a rate of 1.5 lbs per hour and this year have it set on the lowest rate which is .9 lbs per hour. Also had to increase the fresh air intake. If their not burning correctly, try adjusting your feed rate lower and give it more air. See if that works, took me about five bags to figure it out.

    Two years ago, I found these pellets at Lowes ... bought 3 tons... and bought about 5 bags at a time when I happended to be at Lowes.

    Last year .... couldn't find them. Somerset delivered to Lowes in NY but not here (Dedham, MA). I couldnt' find anyone that would deliver.

    This year.. I'm looking for these pellets again .. I like them because because there aren't as much fines when you pour these pellets into the bin. The fines fly all over the place ... and a lot of wiping during the spring.

    We used Somerset Pellets the first year of our pellet stove. Fantastic pellets. Have tried 6 different others since and each one is worse than the last. Really need to know where in central NY I can get Somerset pellets...plz.

    Just tried a few bags of somerset pellets in a brand new Harman XXV while I wait for next years load to arrive. Given that I have no pre-conceived ideas they seemed to work great. When I was forced to switch to Inferno (a local brand) I quickly realised how good the somerset pellets were. No comparison, these somerset pellets win hands down. Big disappointment really because I would like to support a local product.

    More heat than any other. Little to no sawdust. Wish I could find more. I'm unable to find anymore here in mid Missouri.

    just finished about 2 tons of sommerset pellets and was very disappointed. for every 3rd or 4th bag i had to clean the fire pot out because it was full of unburned charcoal looking type of sand. which resulted in burning out my agitator motor. so the money that i saved bying your product cost me in the long run. it is unlikly that i will purchase it again.

    Somerset pellets available in West Jefferson NC for about 225 a ton--I looked at 5 dealers and the Somerset pellet is by far the highest quality and best price. Great place to buy them while you visit the High Country.

    I am considering the purchase of a pellet stove but I can’t find any information regarding how many pounds of pellets that it takes to heat a small home in S.E. Wisconsin. I realize that many factors come into play, severity of the weather, size of the area to be heated, etc.; but I’m just trying to get a “ball park” estimate of what it takes to heat a 1,000 square foot home, will I need a couple of hundred pounds or 20 tons of pellets – I have NO idea.
    Thank You
