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.

    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.

    I have a US Stove Eco-Aire Window Pellet Unit, maintained per the user manual. These pellets work. They produce a little more heat than others. I didn't notice any difference in ash.

    Have tried using cheaper brands.Learned my lesson cheap brands have trouble burning on low. We can set the stove on low with hamers and go to work and not worry about it going out We burn 3 and half tons a season.

    I have an Eco-Aire Window Pellet Unit (USSC). These pellets work. I have dump out my burn pot after 12 hours on the lowest setting just like any other pellets I have tried. I get a little bit more heat out of these than others I have tried. That's about it
