Well I have been using the Crabbe pellet for a long time however the last two seasons I have noticed a bigdifference in how they burn they clump really bad in my fire box so I thought maybe they were damp so I tried a different supplier same thing I used to love they way they burned but something has changed. I now have went back to eastern embers sorry Crabbe wish you could do something

Curt–I’m with you on the smell. My first impression was that they smelled like a weight-room gym. Or–if you want to really appreciate the smell–like vomit that had been on the floor for a day or two . . . They work fine. A little dusty compared to Energex, for example. But the smell is so bad, I may just give what’s left of my ton to someone in need who doesn’t mind the smell.
I purchased a ton of these to try out this winter (running in two Quadrafires).
The heat output is good, but my biggest complaint is the smell of the bags of pellets. They seriously smell like an unwashed butt. The odor takes over the room and doesn’t dissipate quickly. Really smelly… Very unpleasant. I’ve burned a lot of pellets, never had an experience like this before
Started burning these in my whitfield t300p Traditions. Very clean burning Hot. And no fines in the bags. Very little ash as well. For 199 a ton its a no brainer.
Have a Vogelzang 5190 and these pellets make a mess. More to clean out and do not produce a lot of heat compared to Eastern Embers. Glad I only purchased two bags from Home Hardware just to try them.
