  • 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.

    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.

    Englander PDVC25 - burning since 2006.
    I've tried probably 10 different brands of pellets this season 2012-2013 and I went with a ton of fireside ultras early in the season. Glad I did. For me and my stove they appear to offer middle of the road heat output and perhaps above average black soot on the glass of my stove. I have no issues with clinkers and average to above average ash in the burnpot. Worthy of mention - these had far less dust and fines than all other brands I've tried. I dump nearly the entire bag into the hopper and no poof of dust to settle on my living room furniture. I would buy these again. Note - every batch or year can be different but these are good pellets and at the price I paid 209/ton - you can have your 280/ton pellets - I'll take these thank you.

    I have an Englander pellet stove and have had amazing results with Fireside pellets. At this time Home Depot is out in the greater midcoast maine (Brunswick, Topsham, Portland) area. Nothing else burns in my stove as well as the Fireside. Can anyone out there tell me where I can find some? We have been forced to use the Green Supreme brand and all I can say is, while it's better than nothing, it's not by much. This brand shuts my stove down in the middle of the night. The burn pot fills up to the top with ash that is in big chunks... Totally unacceptable on all fronts. I would appreciate any sources where I could find Fireside Brand..

    harmen p68 and quadra fire castle the fireside ultra has caused a lot of problems the ash is hard and not ash I clean my stoves every day and a good cleaning once a week the hard ash is so hard to get out of the quadra fire stove and the harmen won't push the pellets because the hard ash glogs so the pellets won't come out of the auger so I returned them back to home depot and went some where else and they are working fine
