Additional Info

  • Admin Review: Oct 2014: Although the ash shown above looks to be alot, it's actually super light and fluffy. No burn pot scraping was needed and these pellets burned long and hot. Great burn! Also, it appears that the recipe was changed up a bit from last year. I remember last year there were the odd larger pellets (diameter) mixed in with all the regular sized pellets. This years batch were less dark as well and did not have the strong aspen smell as they have in the past. Very nice burn in my Lopi.

    I have a pelpro 130 and have only burned indeck pellets due to availability of pellets in my area. They take slight more draft to burn and generally leave a white soot. The odd smell that some have mentioned is creosote most likely. I have found that when I clean my chimney pipe there is a fair amount in there, more than I have seen from other brands in the past. Also from time to time i have found creosote residue in the burn pot. Other than that, I have found no issues with burning these. Like others have said I do have to empty or clean the fire pot pretty much daily and vacuum out the ash completely about every two days. I have no issues with any high amounts of unburned pellets or fines/dust, they seem to be pretty clean and uniform coming out of the bag. I would definitely try other brands if I could locate any locally as these may be inexpensive, they do seem to be higher maintenance in regards to cleaning.

    I bought 3 ton of these pellets. I have a Harmon stove and went from emptying my stove and cleaning every 2 weeks to every 5 days. The ash was so high inside my stove it was laying on the glass. The heat is average compared to other brands. TSC will take them back but who wants to load them back up. And do that much work to exchange. I will never buy that many pellets that I know nothing about.

    Burning in a Enviro M-55 cast these are the worst pellets ever. Granted, they burn hot but these are a blended pellet and seem to burn significantly faster than hardwood pellets. They also leave way more ash and the clinkers are beyond comparison. I have never spent so much time cleaning the stove. This is my first time with a blend and if they are all like this then never again. They also have a strong pine smell have to wonder what the blend percentage is.

    We just recently bought two pallets of these pellets, and they leave black sooty ash on the glass and there is a lot of build up in the fire box of caked on stuff that is very hard to get out. The ash is very dark grey to black. We were getting pellets that were made in Arkansas that produced a very clean fire and the ash was very light grey to white like powder and it doesn't build up on and stick to the glass, it falls on the ash pot where it should be.

    I bought 10 bags of these pellets at Tractor Supply and had to return 8 bags for a refund. Worst pellets I have ever bought. I have an Ashley pellet stove and the heat on the control panel using pellets made in Holland, Michigan would hang around 80-84 degrees and house temp 70 degrees. With these pellets the control panel would read 90+ degrees and the house temp. 75 degrees. Way too hot. I was not impressed with the amount of ash either. Back to buying Michigan Wood Fuels

    Burning in a Quad Sante Fe. I'm kind of torn on these pellets. I'd say they are average to slightly above.
    Positives.
    The first bag I burned, I went straight from burning Lignetics and the room temp went up 2 degrees with these with the stove on low. I get good heat from them.
    There are virtually no fines in my bags.
    No issues with Clinkers.

    Negatives.
    They make a lot of ash.
    They have a "different" smell. I don't find it offensive, but it is a stronger smell than I'm used to.

    I have a new England stove and normally burn a high quality pine pellet. I ran out of them this winter and had to buy a ton of these indeck hardwood pellets. They are the worst ive ever seen. You have to empty the ashes every two days. Never going to buy again, and neither should you.

    I burn a Thelin 3000 and these are by far the worst pellet I have ever purchased. The amount of ash they produce is incredible and i have to empty the ash every 2 days. These also burn dirty and glaze the glass in a few hours. These are readily available but i definitely will never purchase these again!

    Harmon PC 45 corn / pellet stove have been using this brand for years. First as a mix with corn but now with the corn prices burning straight pellets. This year we have to keep a closer eye on the stove due to occasional back up in burn pot and glass gets black quicker. I clean my stove once to twice a month and lately have been empting ash pan once a day.

    Have also just noticed a crayon smell when the blower is running and I have read this could be due to the pellets. Not sure if you change the pellets or if I got a bad batch. Will burn Penny Wise instead when I can find it otherwise based on past experience will still use Index
