For Katherine Heselton of Topsham/Brunswick Maine - we just had 2 ton delivered from Home Depot in Augusta MaineReport
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..Report
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 fineReport
my sove is a harmen p68 and a quardra fire castile cleaned dailey I bought 4 ton of fireside pellets the first three were god the 4th ton poor after they burn they leave an ash that looks like larva hard have trouble getting them out of the pot and it won't brake apart so I returned them back to home depot and got another brand because of the hard ash the stove would not lite it kept dumping pellets this is a dangerous pellet if the stove lit it would of cause a fire please beware.Report
I purchased fireside pellets from HD. They burn with a lot of soot. The pellets are less than half the size I was burning before.
I only get 12 -14 hours out of a bag, running my Breckwell stove on #2,if I turn it up to #3 I get 12 hrs or less.I have had my stove for 7 years. I really like it. I cannot comment on any others I have only used this one.I feel that my problem is that most of pellets are the size of a pea. I will not buy them again.Has any one else had this problem???

Running a little low and saw the Fireside ultra add at a local big box for much less than what I have been paying for pellets. I have never used them and was skeptical. However, I was suprised at the amount of heat they throw. Heat wise they are comparible to virtually all I have used. They appear to be soft wood type pellets and are better than any other softwood I have tried. They cost 40-50 less than many other brands. Like other pine type pellets they do produce black on the glass of the stove.
I echo Barry's comments. Have tried many brands in my Travis and find that it is as much a function of the stove's condition and burning circumstances than it is the pellet brand. So far the Fireside's that I am trying now are burning exceptionally well in my stove. Greater temperature delta across heat exchanger, less measurable ash. Pellet average length about 20% less than other brands. Not sure yet how that makes a difference.Report
Bought 10 bags of fireside to try. I have beenburning nations choice all winter with. No issues. Well after putting a bag of fireside in my kozi pellet stove, the burn pot was Completely plugged with a 6" x4" brick of black crap!! Returning the other 9 bags to home depot a.s.a.p!! What garbage pellets!! Avoid at all cost if your smart!!Report
Here's my 5cents.... I've been burning wood pellets for four years. I have a Hudson River "Westpoint" stove and have tried many brands of pellets including Fireside(best),Pennington(fair),Freedom(absolute worst),Maine Woods(fair),New England Wood Pellet(fair),Green Team(good) and a couple of others. I've found without question Fireside burn best in MY stove. Note I said MY STOVE! I get absolutely no clinkers and no build-up in the burn pot, as I found with all the other brands I tried. I get about a gallon paint can of ash every 10-12 bags I burn. My answer to all the conflicting comments is make sure your pellets are dry, your stove is clean, and stay with the pellets that burn the best in YOUR stove because chances are they won't burn the same in the next guys stove. All stoves don't have the same dynamics so what burns great in my stove might be crap for you....just sayin'Report
