    Tom - Stove Chow is 100% hardwood. Stating it's "white wood" simply means there is no bark.

    As for your comment about the density, it's true that in cordwood form, softwood is less dense but that's not true of wood pellet fuel.

    The density is determined by the pellet mill. Try dropping a pellet (ever 100% softwood) into a glass of water and it will sink whereas a tree will float.

    This is the first bag of Stove Chow pellets I've tried. I have a thermometer on the hot air exhaust to do an actual temperature output. Using the tempurature reading from the bag (American Wood product) previous (133deg)I ran that out and put in a bag of Stove chow and checked the tempurature (117deg)output after 6 hours. There is definately a temperature output difference. I like to have facts not just assumptions. I also noticed when the hopper is full it's not hard to empty the whole bag of American Wood Products 40lb bag. With the stove chow it was work to get the whole bag in which tells me there is more in the Stove chow to achieve 40lbs in the bags. THis tells me there is a lighter weight wood in the stove chow which can only mean they are using a soft wood as filler. Soft wood doesn't burn as hot. THis will be the last bag of Stove Chow I'll use. I looked at the bag and they don't state what the wood hard or soft, they just state it's a white wood (pine is white wood and a soft wood). As far as I'm concerned that's deceptive advertisement and the same thing politicians are doing, only telling half the truth. No thanks.

    Those claiming these are "junk" should remember, different stoves act differently to each pellet brand. So whats junk to one is great for another. Most stoves will make the best out of nearly ANY pellet if it's adjusted properly. And I can't even say it's crappy stoves since I'm running an Englander 25 PVDC Home Depot unit and it's so adjustable, it'll burn damn near anything. Set em' right and they'll burn fine.

    I have a Harman P61. This is my 4th or 5th year using it. I have burned Stove Chow, Pennington, Freedom pellets, American wood fibers and several other brands. And I have to say I don't notice a big difference in any of the brands. They all burn well. I take the time every week or so and clean it out well. Any of the brands I have used in the past I would use again without question.

    Quadra Class Bay 1200 - 1st season using Stove Chow. At first we liked the pellets - burned hot, somewhat low ash and the stove has backed up and filled the room with smoke 3 times. Each time we manually shut down the unit. The dealer where we bought the stove claims its the Stove Chow pellets. We clean the stove almost every day but definitely on the 2nd day. Has anyone had any issues and if so, can you share how you resolved the issue? Thank you.

    I own a USSC pellet stove and have very good luck with stove chow. I purchased them at TSC(tractor supply company) locally and normally have bad luck with TSC pellets, the reason I try out a few bags before committing to a ton or more. However after using a few bags of Stove chow I bought a ton as they were found to put out great heat with less glass cleanings and ash content.

    I have tried many brands of pellets in my Harman p-38 including Cubex, Dry Creek and many others, Stove Chow pellets have been the best I have used in the 6 years I have had my stove, Maybe I got a good batch, They put out a ton of heat, Very few fines no long pellets to jam the stove up, They work very well in my Harman stove, I get a little bit of residue on my glass after a few days but it wipes right off easily, I will be buying more if I can find them next year, Got mine at Home Depot and the price was right. Very good value

    Napoleon Insert(Np45i) just got it installed this week, bought 2 tons of stove chow from HD, I'm very dissapointed with these pellets, very little heat had to clean the stove after 2 nights of burning, have to clean it again tomorrow there is so much ash in the stove.

    A lot of clinkers in the burn pot, not doing a good job, I have single story ranch 1200 sq ft. A friend of mine has a Breckwell and a similar house to mine his house is 80 degrees, my home is struggling to get to 70.

    I don't know if it's the stove or the pellets but I will try changing the pellets I'm burning.

    Also if I had known the insert was going to be so much trouble to put in I would have bought a stand alone.
