    My father-in-law gave me a few bags of these to try in my stove (Waterford Erin) and I kinda wish he wouldn't have. These are by far the cleanest pellets I have ever burned, decent heat with practically no ash or clinkers. Now that I'm back to burning my own stock (Logik-e with some Okanagan Gold) I'm feeling like I missed out. My only consolation is that the Logik-e were $75 cheaper than the Turman.

    been heating with pellet stoves for 20-25 yrs. so far Turman is the best, burn VERY clean and hot. 1/4 to 1/3 less time needed for cleanouts.

    I've had a stove (Harman) for about 7 years now and have tried A LOT of brands. I haven't noticed a big difference in heat out put among brands but Turman without a doubt were head and shoulders above the crowd in terms of low ash. Unbelievable difference. I wouldn't have to empty the ash pan for 2 weeks where with other brands it might be two days. Can't get them anymore since the place that used to carry them closed. I'm burning Clearfire Pacific now which are pretty good. I'd steer clear of any brands you get at the grocery store chains like Big Y (Inferno) and PriceChopper (I forget brand).

    Truman pellets leave very little ash. They generate a lot of heat. I recommend using these pellets you won't be disappointed

    Drove 30 minutes for these "Premium" pellets from my dealer and paid Premium price. Good thing I didn't buy a ton. I always try before I buy....Not impressed..Many were 2 1/2 " long, a lot of fines in the bags, heat output was not that great, more ash than others.

    We have been offering pellets and stoves since 1997 and have offered many different brands of pellets. My customers have chosen Turman as being the best pellet and so this is what we carry. We offer an early buy so that there is a win, win situation of which people can get them at a lower price and we do not have to put out all the money to stock the pellets over winter nor have the concern of a shortage. We are Hoyles Healthy Hearth and Home in Lincolnton NC

    I have an Advantage Optima T300P

    I drove 45 minutes to pick up some Turman bags because I heard great things about their pellets and I'm happy to report it was worth the trip. By far the best pellet I've ever burned and I've run Northern, Ambiance, Lignetics, Energex, Maine Pellet Company, and others. Burns hot and hardly any ash. The ash it produces is mostly black and I've read that an abundance of white/gray ash comes from moisture and minerals in the wood. This would suggest that the Turman kiln dried process keeps ash to a minimum. If there is any drawback it is the price of the pellet and a couple of bags had some sawdust. But the pellet burns real hot so the price is offset by the heat it produces. For anyone in Southern NH or Norther Mass, Horse and Carriage Feed in Winchendon, MA sells Turman. You won't be disappointed!

    Englander PDVC-25.

    I bought a few bags of Turman this past summer as I had some from the previous year. I was very disappointed with this past summer (2013) purchase based on the price.

    Before my last purchase this pellet was far superior than any other. It burned so hot it had to be a certain very low temp for me to use them.

    This years purchase didn't throw any more heat than the brand I paid much less for. They did burn clean yet the level of heat was much lower and for some reason the pellet size was different.

    I'm on my second ton this winter. I used 2 tons last winter. I have a Heatilator Pointe pellet fireplace, which is close to a Mt. Vernon insert, I'm told. They are low ash in the pan, but large flames, dirty glass, and lots of ash in the firebox builds up rather quickly (within 1 bag). I bought them for $245 a ton in Fallston, MD about a month ago. There was no talk of a shortage/issue then. I don't know of any other dealers in the Baltimore area except for the well-known dealer in Harford County.
    I will probably stick with Turman, but I wonder if there is a better choice that minimizes the problems described above?

    I have a Harman P-61 and have always used turman pellets, I bought 4 ton early to get the discount at the coal yard in Mechanicsburg Pa. but this year the bags are full of saw dust and you can crumble them in your hand ( they are supposed to be hard wood ) and they also blocked the auger hole two different times from being too long and I came home to a cold house, they are burning much quicker than before. I usually use 4 ton a year but I am going to use at least 6 ton this year because of the condition of the pellets and I clean my stove constantly and strip it down completey before starting the season. Guess I will look for another brand in the future.
