1mainewoods200300smallMaine Woods Pellets: I am VERY impressed with these pellets and going to go as far as rating them the #1 best wood pellet for this years heating season. Taking into consideration the price, heat, and ash levels, I think these pellets are by far the best bang for the BTU buck!.

energex2Energex CA (Green Bag): Energex Pellets (GREEN BAG FROM CANADA) exceed the PFI's premium grade standard. Their softwood pellets are designed to burn hotter and have been tested to yield a BTU value averaging between 8300 to 8500 BTUs per pound (on a dry basis).

Best Softwood Pellets

1vermont wood pelletsVermont Wood Pellets: The "Best Softwood Pellet" I have ever burned are these Vermont Wood Pellets. Actually, if you have been a reader of this website you know I have always been a fan of the west coast softwoods like Okanagan or Blazer and have made comments about mills mills over here or Eastern Canada are just simply not capable of producing a decent (clean, hot and long burning) softwood pellet.

okanagan_pellets2Okanagan Wood Pellets: What can I say, they are the most popular pellet on this website with just over 5 thousand drop ins. Okanagan and Westwood Super Premium pellets are made from 100% softwood sawdust. There are no additives, bark or other possible contaminants. Okanagan's meet the Super Premium standard of the Pellet Fuel Institute. Great Pellet!

    First season wtih a Timberwolf (Napolean)TPS35 stove. Turman Pellets are the BEST but way to much moola! They are available at one shop here in Eastern MA, West Bridgewater Fireplace Co. If you have money to burn get em but not worth the price in my opinion. I blended them in to a mix with Warm Front and Maine Choice in the Vac sifter to get a better burn.

    We have only used Cubex and Okanagan, but had an opportunity to purchase locally "inferno wood pellets", the claims on the bag look good, they say they are a premium pellet. Their website doesn't say anything. What do you say? Thanks.
