    I have been burning New England Pellets since 1999 an average of 3 ton a year for the 1st 11 years I had a Whitfield Profile 30, Now I have a Harman P-68 This year with the New England Pellets they are very long and have to get broken by the auger, that makes a loud bang noise has anyone else noticed that?

    We are in our second season of heating our 2000 sq/ft (above ground) colonial home with an Enviro Meridian Fireplace insert in Northwest Vermont. Just picked up a ton of Northeast Pellets. After a few bags, I am regretting the purchase of a full ton. Having lots of problems with ash. My wife and I have never seen the firepot fill up with so much thick heavy ash. Really big chunks and I have seen a quite a few bits of pellets that have not burned completely. I will not buy Northeast again.

    I too have been having trouble. Burning in a Quad CB1200 I have seen a lot more fines and dust, poor heat and a dirtier stove. Also this time more wet pellets. I clean our burn pot daily and a full cleaning of the burn area weekly and a through whole system once a month.

    The good news is I wrote to customer service there and they replied with info and gave a lot of descent information. I would encourage all who have trouble with the pellet to contact NEWP and tell them about it. They cannot fix something that they do not know about. You can contact Leanne at info@pelletheat.com and she will be glad to listen and help you. And no I am not with NEWP. We are now trying a new pellet "Northeast".

    I decided to try the NE's to broaden my experience base on different types of pellets. My first comment came when I poured the Baggie in the hopper and was met by a large plume of dust billowing up. Thought it was an isolated incident but realized quickly this was not the case. The next impression came when I was met by an off odor, coming either from the plastic bag, or the pellets. Again I gave it time time subside and concluded that it was similar to a bottle of wine taking its first breath after opening. It definitely did not smell like the sweet piney goodness of softwood pellets.
    Burning- heat was substantially less output than what I am used to, and these things never really threw off the heat that I want and expect. Looking at the bag displayed a BTU range of only 7900-8200 btus at 3% moisture. These definitely struggle to get that far. I was told by the salesperson that it is is good shoulder pellet, when the temps out side are moderate and save the hot burning pellets for when the temperatures drop cold. That always baffles as I don't know why you would ever want a "cooler" burning pellet?? Adjust your burn rate lower and slower, and you run more efficiently than burning just for the sake of burning.
    Ash content- very much build up and very quickly on the edge of the burn pot. Large "chunks" of ash clods quickly accumulated even when calling for middle road temps. Normally this will happen over a long period of time when I burn low and slow, but is a much less. With these it suffocates the air supply very quickly, and chokes the fire and efficiency. I clean my stove approximately every week and half, so it does operate as spec'ed.

    Normally I run Vermont softwood through my machine, a Harman Accentra. You can run dog kibble through it if you'd like. While some hardwoods MAY burn hotter, these New England's definitely don't work in my machine and will be avoided, surprising for Harmans.

    I have always used new england pellets and liked them, but last winter must have got a bad batch. Stove got dirty within a couple days. Always clean stove once a week too. Deciding if I should try another brand !!

    I often wonder about online reviews. People selling other brands can post and say that NEWP suck. Like the post about finding nails and screws and other debris in the bag of NEWP. Really?? The ONLY way that got in there was from a disgruntled employee.

    I tried the Vermont Pellet and was not happy. It was very dirty, black soot and big clinkers in my burn pot. After reading the reviews on the Vermont pellet I expected a much better burn. My stove burns 24-7 when its under 45 outside and I only like to clean my stove once a week. The New England pellet was much better for me, nice heat, clean burn and clean burn pot.

    hi i got a quadfire classic bay. I got 5 tons this year with no issues, but i have say that some of the pellets were cut long, vs others. They burnt pretty good overall, limited saw dust and ash, but the more you burn the more ash you create. I think this issue the above user had was you need to clean more frequently.

    like a lot of the comments on NEWP I have found this years pellet to be significantly below par compared to previous burnings. When I first installed our stove I experimented with every locally available producer to find the 'right' pellet... NEWP was the one, but this year the pot is filling with clinkers, the glass is black and the heat just isn't there. I thought perhaps is was just a bad batch and tried a second delivery with no luck...
