Admin Review:Sept 2014: These pellets burned very nice. I had to keep the air up high so the ash did not build up in the burnpot. A few scraps from my stick and all was well. The ash was very good. Not that much ash at all. As said, keep the air up high and you will have a great burning experience from these pellets. The only thing that I was not a huge fan of was the thin bag. Not a big deal for those who do not toss them around.
