If someone has a new stove and doesn’t have experience they should not leave a review. Softwood pellets are more desirable then hardwood. Blackstone are supposed to be a blend but sure do smell softwood. Why do you idiots want rock hard pellets? Thems the 1’s clogging your augger.Havent seen all the black pellets you’ll talking about. But can be a few in any brand. Got a 26 y.o. envirio ef2. It was making some auger noise but I got it to quiet down with wd40 on the bushing and by gently placing pellets in. Not saying 4 you to do but working 4 me. Take a prod once in a while and fluff the pellets loose down near the auger to make it easier on it. If you have a 80 to 120 lb mega hopper that’s putting the strain on your auger when you chuck it full. So these may smoke a little more then other brands. That’s why you do the cleaning and maintaining. Besdes it’s easy to just clean the glass off with a clean old sock or rag. Just add a little water to therag when cleaning when the stove is cold. Hit it with a rag when hot that’s dry all the time while running works fine. Would rate these 4 stars. But when it’s all rock-hard hardwood pellets and only these I will buy them again. But maybe there have been problems in the past? All I know is these January 2023 ones aren’t that bad and I did have to deal with a brand in the past that was rock hard and supposedly softwood with long ones that were tough to burn. Took a chance on 25 of these and after 7 bags so far so good. No more sawdust then others. Don’t see a pile at the end of bag but have seen some with others. Solution for that is swish that part around some and disperse evenly so not all goes in at once. But what do I know just a bum burning pellets for 7th year after burning wood 4 40. Now there’s some smoke and cleaning for ya! Buy local and these are locally made 4 me. Any spelling or mi ss inundation here blame on autocorrect. Relax pellets stoves will be replaced by heat pumps and new technology to come anyways! Dang u autocorrect! Peace and love don’t burn it down. Fire extinguishers, co2, and smoke alarms forever. And don’t leave no paper near the snow globe in the sun. Or you’ll be using that satey equipment. Happy 2023! Try a few bags so you loose less then$ 15

BLACKSTONE PELLETS have to be one of the worst pellets hiukd the whole world. Creosote everyday ,even the glass cannot be cleaned. this must have added years of ware on my new stove.
blackstone wood pellets almost ruined my pellet stove. these pellets must be made with green pine and not hard wood.

These pellets will clog a stove fast . I had to shift the sawdust out of every bag that amounted to 2 large handfuls a bag. On top of the long pellets you have to break up. They have some pellets that are black with whatever is in it, the ash is a nasty hard clumps. Even after sorting the sawdust out of each bag I still have to shut down every 2 weeks and clean with sawdust I didn’t get or the bottom gets clogged. I called the company and they offered me no help. Do not buy these pellets!
First time buying Blackstone pellets and it will be the last time. First of all is the problem with the pellets being too long and clogging my Harman Advance. Had to sift through hundreds of bags and break all the long pellets or risk waking up in the middle of the night and find the house cold and the stove out. the other problem I have with these pellets is the fact thAt they are only 8000 B.T.U.s wgere as the better pellets are 8500 & 8899 and some are 9000 B.

There’s more dust in every bag than pellets. clogged up my QuadraFire stove every 3 to 4 days, constantly vacuuming out my hopper. Terrible product. STAY AWAY.
I am on my 2nd ton and these pellets burn well and leave minimal ash. Yes the ash is darker color than I’m used to but I can go 2 weeks in my Harman 52i before I have to think about emptying the ash pan. I don’t know why everyone knocks these .. there is a reason why many dealers are sold out.

I have been using Blackstone Pellets for awhile as they are sold affordably at a local retailer here. I live in a remote location so the choices are not wide. I just picked up a new ton of pellets (2/11/19) and the quality of these pellets has gone sharply downward. The pellets are very hard and long and jam the gate on my Harmon XXV. I’ve had to sort all the bags I have used it the last week to break up the long pellets, and these are very hard almost as it the wood had varnish on it. Some pellets look just like dark brown plastic with no wood involved, so I had to removed those. So far sorted 8 bags of pellets – a real pain. Cleaned stove after a week of burning these and the creosote is off the charts, and very hard to remove. The ash is weird and crunchy, unlike any ash I have ever experienced in 11 years with this stove. Stove is in great shape and I do most of the repair and maintenance on it myself, so I know this is not an appliance issue, it is the pellets. However, I will give them one flame for the simple fact that yes, they do burn. These pellets used to be fine, but this ton is terrible.
