    I have a Quadra-fire pellet stove insert I bought 2 years ago. Last year I used presto-pellets, from Lowe's for $4.18/bag, I never had a problem. This year I started using stove chow pellets from Home Depot for $3.92/bag. I periodically clean the stove every 2 weeks. With stove chow I have to clean it every week or the clinker buildup stops the air-flow so the unit won't fire. Looks like i'll be heading back to Lowe's for .26 cents more a bag...

    The Stove Chow I bought from the Kingston H.D. burns about 100+* hotter (using an IR thermometer) in my Thelin parlor stove than the Green Supreme that I have been using the last few years. Instead of a brown soot coating on the glass of my stove I get a gray ash covering it and the ash build up in the stove from the Stove Chow doesnt accumulate as quickly in the burn chamber, but is blown out the chimney and ends up in the clean out drop. Neither pellet creates clinkers in my stoves. This year anyway Stove Chow seems to be a superior pellet for the coldest days of this winter.

    The $4.18 a bag was just too tempting this year with all the high-end pellets priced at over $300.00 plus for a ton on long island. This years Stove Chow, I must say is burning wonderfully in my Whitfield Advantage II insert. I had mixed feelings on it last year, but have not one complaint with the pellets themseles, burning hot, glass is getting a very slow build up, and ash is not bad at all. My only complaint is with the bags as they are super thin and if your not extremely careful. They rip if you look at them the wrong way.

    What most people miss about burning pellets, is the pellet mix determines how to adjust the air mixture. if you burn one brand then the next bag is another brand watch the flame, learn to read the flame and adjust accordingly. You may have to take a picture of the flame, record the brand and after a hopper full check out the ash and burn pot and read your notes carefully. You will see that different pellets always burn differently due to the type of wood and dryness of the pellet. a 100% hardwood pellet if never the same as another brands 100% hardwood due to the tree species it comes from. Those of us who burn wood know this and watch the burn to adjust the flame for the most efficient burn. It's not hard work, but you need to know the flame and be ready to adjust the air mixture to get that perfect flame for the most efficient burn. A poor burn is a waste of heat and money.

    Recently I cleaned a pellet stove chimney and got (ready for this?) over 3 gallons of soot and about one gallon of it was pure creosote in that 4 inch 20 foot chimney. Mind you it was stainless steel flex pipe. They used a poor brush to clean the pipe and that brush was not stiff enough to remove the creosote, thus the buildup. I use the Rutland brushes and are very happy with them they are stiff enough to remove the creosote. Note contrary to popular myth, pellets stoves can produce creosote in the exhaust/chimney pipe. This is a fire danger! Be vigilant and clean the pipe frequently the first year to know your stoves and pipes buildup rates. Monthly the first year is not an unreasonable cleaning period, till you know how much ash and or creosote builds up.

    I had no problems with stove chow and I am a pellet user of over a decade, and what I have noticed is the resellers have this nasty habit of storing the pallets of pellets in the rain, outdoors in humid weather for months on end. This is a bad bad idea as pellets can not be allowed to absorb humidity. Humidity makes them hard to light, they will burn poorly, and jam a stove sometimes because if excessive fines (dust).

    ALWAYS examine your supplier/reseller of pellets to make sure they store the pellets in doors not out in a yard. Even if they are stored under a awning outdoors in some areas of the country the humidity will permeate the bags, and what most people don't know the changing outdoor temperatures cause condensation inside the bag which causes excessively humid pellets, and they will also break apart with handling the bags causing excessive fines (dust) which can cause stove failures.

    I repair pellet stoves and burn 8 tons a winter.

    I bought stove chow for my Englander stove from H.D. The few bags started up fast and burn hotter than others I have used. So I bought 2 tons this year. H.D. delivered and only 2 of the bags had small rips, so no lost pellets. Stove does no seem to create a lot of ash or at least no more than others. The only thing I have noticed is the are a few black deposits, but not bad. For $219 a ton I will use stove chow as my regular pellet going forward

    I bought a ton of stovechow pellets @ the home depot dickson city pa 9/16/13 I went thru 3 pallets that had pellets leaking out the bottom the 4th one was still leaking pellets but I took it ! I straped the pallet down I got a1/4 mile away & the pellet colapsed & fell on the road when I unloaded it I found out that the bottom 5 bags were busted & wet ! that was the reason the pallet colapsed ! your bags are thin, my fingers go right thru them, called home depot & told them about it ! I lost 9 bags on the road they`re reimbursing them! I`m a senior citizen & go thru 5 ton a year I`ll be @ lowes to get the other 4 ton !

    I have a Harman stove and this late in the season, I don't need a full ton of pellets so have tried some different brands. I bought five bags of Stove Chow pellets at at Home Depot near Albany, NY. Thank goodness I only bought five bags! These are the worse pellets of any I have burned in the one year of owning the stove. The pellets left big clumps of ashes on the edge of the burn pot, specks of black on the glass in the door, heavy build up of soot in the stove and quite a bit of creosote in the burn pot.

    Sir: I don't understand all of the comments you get on your product Stove Chow. I purchased 2 Ton at the beginning of the season from Home Depot. I have to shut my stove down at least 3 times during the day to clean the ash. This is from one bag, The hopper only holds one bag. This was the only brand available from them at the time. This product has a large amount of ash.
