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.

Bought 2 tons because that is all that was available at the time. Burned one and it about ruined my Harmon P61A stove. Tons of creosote, sooooo hard to clean. Been on it 3 days already. Chiseling , wire brushing. I have already made arrangements to return the last ton and trade for New England pellets. Should have known from the cheaper price. You will be extremely sorry you didn’t spend the extra dollar amount and buy good pellets.
