Hamer's Hot Ones Wood Pellet Fuel

Hamers Hot Ones pellet fuel is made from clean sawdust, much of which comes from our own lumber operations in the heart of the Appalachian Region of the United States in West Virginia. Distribution area is in the mid Atlantic and NorthEast States (WV, VA, PA, MD, NJ, OH, CT, Del, NC and Mass.)

Why Choose Hamer's Hot Ones? The dust is compressed into pellets that produce clean, reliable heat with low emissions and an extremely small amount of ash.
Experience - We are the oldest residential pellet manufacturer in the Eastern United States. We know how to provide quality pellets consistently.

    The pellets are very good but why oh why does Bombergers charge $8.00 a bag that is ridiculous.
    This is why I have to go some where else and purchase pellets your losing business because of this high price. Everyone else is charging $5.00 a bag are they trying to go on vacation early.

    I bought these on the strength of reviews here and elsewhere but for me, they're a mixed bag (no pun intended.) I am using them in very well-maintained Harman P68 (I clean and maintain it like I used to clean and maintain my cars) and they do run hot but analytically, they're a disappointment. Based on feed rate, they're appreciably hotter than the McFeeters and Great American that I've run before (1 for Hamers versus 3 for the other two), but I also seem to be running through them faster. Though it's early in the season (in SW CT), I'm going through an average of 2.14 bags/day versus 1.54 for Great American. And the amount of ash these leave, as some others have stated, is huge! The mounds in the burn pot end of log-jamming the burning pellets. I have to swipe the ashes out every day whereas with the others, only at the weekly cleaning. For me, the jury is out. I know I'm going to run out before the season but beyond that, I'm not sure they're worth the premium price tag.

    Hands down the best pellet I have burned yet. Hot and clean. I use these for the really cold days. Barefoots are my everyday pellet.

    I've burned Hamer's 3 years in a row. I have a QuadraFire Santa Fe , 5 years old. The first 2 yrs of Hamers were OK. I noticed the quality go down the third year which was the winter of 2010-2011. The pellet was damp (not to the touch) , swollen , and left an insane amount of ash. I would have to empty the pot twice a day. Easily 2-4 cups of ash a day! Crap pellets overpriced. My distributor BT Fuels would exchange them only after they "determined" it was the pellet and no issue with the way I stored the pellet.(Brand new shed , devoted exclusively for pellets). Then they would charge me a delivery fee !?!? I never purchased them again.

    Own a Mt. Vernon Quadrafire and these have so far been the worst pellets in terms of ash. Also, I normally use about four-fifths of a ton per winter but found myself burning through well over a ton of Hamer's Hot Ones this past winter. I know it was a particularly cold winter, but doesn't make sense to have burned through close to a ton and a half!

    I've been burning whatever Home Depot carries. I used about 2.5 tons this winter and needed another 1/2 ton but HD was out. So I found these Hamers. Aside from being a LOT more expensive, I see no difference in ash or output from the $209 a ton HD brands and these $325 a ton pellets. From doing a lot of research online on pellet brands, I'm finding that there's no one brand that everyone agrees is best. I have to take that to mean it all depends on the stove being used. I'll stick to the cheap ones that work perfectly fine.

    Dear gotnolips, No swollen pellets is not common. This tends to occur once moisture enters the bag. This is usually caused when they are improperly stored. Return to where you bought them for a refund!

    I just purchased my first pellet stove, (Mt Vernon AE Insert) and I am about half way through a ton of Hamers. I agree with the poster that said that they produce a lot of ash. Not having experience with other brands, I am not sure if they produce more than others, I just know that I have to clean the bottom of my Mt Vernon Insert after every 2 or 3 bags.

    My biggest problem is that 5 of the 25 bags that I have burned so far have had these big clumps of damp swollen pellets. I am guessing I have thrown out 10+ pounds so far. Not sure if that is normal or not???

    Not impressed with these pellets. Certainly not worth the extra cost. Burning them in a seven year old St. Croix Afton Bay. They do burn hotter - a lot hotter - but the amount of ash is unbelievable! Cleaning the stove 2x's per week.
