I have been using pellet heating stoves since they was invented. I used them and repaired them for many years. A these cheat River pellets are the worst I have seen. I really doubt they are hard wood. I would guess a mix of junk wood and cardboard. Who knows what you’re getting . Very dirty and high ash. Everyone seems to be selling this brand. Probably because it’s cheep . And their mark up is bigger. It will run in most stoves but if you can go on down the road on this one.

Poor pellets, high ash low heat. Create alot of soot. I’m glad I only got 4 bags to try them. Unfortunately right now our local menards only seem to be carrying these at the moment. I have never seen so many bags of pellets in that store so I’m assuming people are realizing how bad these are.
I’ll definately not buy again.
The hardwood pellets that I have been using sucks. To much dust in the bag and to much ash. I have to clean my pellet stove twice as many times as I did when I was using Michigan hardwood pellets

2 years owning a pellet stove, used 4 brands and cheat river brand gave me the best heat, more consistant flame and probly 40% less ash than other brands. burning in a king 5501 from ts co
I’ve been using wood pellet stove for four years. This year the winter is colder than usual and I started running low. I’ve used maybe four different brands and the latest was eco-blazers which is on the dusty side but burns good with little ash. After running low I bought eight bags of pellets from the local farm & tractor which is supplied by Cheat River. Dust is lower, but wow, the ash buildup is very heavy. It’s like watching moon rocks grow. Worst ever! It even smells funny in the bag. Don’t buy this crap. (Harman P62A)
So disappointed. ..purchased these pellets because they were made in West Virginia. Usually cleaned the ash out once a month. Now with these pellets, it’s once a week. Hardly any heat..and lots of ash…
After ready these comments I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I usually grab any bag off the shelf at Lowe’s or Home Depot and never had any issues with any brand of pellets. I heat 1500 ft. These pellets worked as well as any.
I bought two tons of Cheat River pellets at Lowe’s after trying a bag of each brand they carry. I burn Cheat River is a Castle Serenity stove. The stove is designed to comfortably heat a room, but mine heats my 1,800 s.f. ranch home using one bag per day. I have found the Cheat River pellets’ best feature is they are very clean burning. I clean and vacuum my stove once a day, and the burn pot has no ash build-up at all. The pellets seem to burn evenly, and produce a nice flame, which my wife and I enjoy watching. These pellets seem to produce less heat than other brands I have tried. But I will stick with them until I find another brand that burns just as clean and produces more heat. I wish pellet manufacturers were required to show the BTU output of their products, as well as the various species of wood used. My favorite pellet brand so far has been American Wood Fibers softwood pellets. They burn hot and fairly clean. I used to be able to get them at our local Farm and Family store, but they now offer pellets under their own brand name.
