  • Admin Review: August - 2017 - Looking forward to burning some this year!! I always thought these were great pellets
    Oct - 2017 - GOOD GOD I GOT BAG THAT MISSED QUALITY CONTROL. I have never in my 8 years of doing this website seen ash so high. Check out the picture below of the ash only after 4 hours of burn. On a positive, These pellets put out a ton of heat and I have always liked burning them in the past. However, Londonderry Home Depot! Don't get them there. Its a bad batch.

    We have used several brands of pellets and these are one of the best for heat, but seem to leave more ash. We have an Englander pellet stove.

    I have a Breckwell stove, which I have had for five years. I have tried many brands and fInd these Fireside to be very good and priced reasonably.

    My husband loves this brand of wood pellets.
    We used it all winter last year and this year the Home Depot's in this state(VT) is not caring it. We have called many stores. Please let us know where we can purchase it. Thank you

    Just finished my testing (moisture and heat) of 6 brands of pellets. Moisture test was the result of lost weight of accurately measured (.1 grain accuracy of about 1 oz.) pellets after a heating to 200 degrees for 1 hour, then cooled. Heat test was in my Harman Accentra insert after thorough cleaning and settings to Stove Temp mode L, max Temperature and Feed Rate of 1.5 preheated for 1 hour before testing. Thermocouple was placed in the exhaust path next to the ESP probe. Fireside Ultra, purchased at Home Depot, tested very well against the other 5. My value choice for the house in MA. It was second best moisture (6.03%) and third best temperature (373 degrees F). Some available brands were not tested because they were known to be of poor quality from prior reviews. Cubex was best heat (383 degrees F) and third for moisture (6.51%),will likely buy a ton for use in NH. Greene Team, my NH house value choice, was second in heat (376 defrees F) and fourth in moisture (6.56%). Nature’s Own, an okay pellet, was fourth (370 degrees F) and 6.62% moisture. Nation’s choice, probably poor quality composition, was fifth (353 degrees F) with only 4.78% moisture (it should have heated much better). Last was Hearthside, from Lowes, with 348 degrees F and 7.39% moisture, the wettest and least hot pellet.

    Pellets look great, small pock circles on the bags disappointments me, I checked the entire skid. Every bag has 6 to 8 small circles. I would not store theses bags Outside. Nor will I buy anymote

    I just bought 4 more tons of Firesides. I've been burning them in my Enviro VistaFlame VF-100 and QuadraFire Csatile FS for five years.I won't be putting anything else in my stoves unless the Ultra's quality does a 180.

    OWN A QUARD-1200 PELLETT INSERT. HAVE USED 4 DIFFERENT PELLETS , FIRESIDE WAS BY FAR THE BEST THAT I HAVE USED. HIGH HEAT OUTPUT WITH VERY LOW ASH BUILDUP. I ALWAYS PULL BURN POT HANDLE ONCE A DAY TO MINIMIZE THE CHANCES OF CLINKS.. I WOULD RECOMMEND HIGHLY. ONE LAST THING HD SHOULD CARY THIS YAER ROUND INSTEAD OF SEASONAL AS I FOR ONE USE IT TO BRACK DAMPNESS AND COOLNESS IN MORNINGS AND NIGHTS. WAYNE FROM LYNN, MA.

    I have a St. Croix Lancaster stove and I have been using the Fireside Ultras with very good results, nice heat out of them will definitely go to Augusta HD and get more.

    Purchased new Harmon P35i in December and needed pellets for install so I picked up a dozen bags at local HD to start. Tried several other more expensive brands but keep coming back to Fireside Ultra for the high heat, low ash, no fines and can't beat the price.

    I have a Hudson river westpoint stove for 4 years. Since I bought the the stove I have had problems with ash buildup in the the burn pot. I clean my stove weekly and chimney monthly. I have tried many different brands of pellets all with the same result build up in the burn pot poor burn. I went to Home Depot and bought the fireside pellets. They work great! No build up, ash seams minimal. I think why they work so well with the stove is the small size of the pellet and the burn pot design. I will defiantly be buying these pellets for next season.
