I live in Oregon and really like these packsaddle pellets. They seem very hot, almost no ash, firm and do not tend to absorb moister, which is important in the Northwest! I am very satisfied with their performance. I have been using pellets since the 90’s. I wish I could find them cheaper! They claim 100% douglas fir and they certainly look to be.

Super happy with Packsaddle pellets. We changed from a Wood stove (which had since 1983) to a pellet stove 1 year ago. I was very nervous having a pellet stove. I wanted the feel of having wood. These pellets burn last with little ash. They smell good and I am super happy I did this and got the Packsaddle pellets. I have bough others to see and this year, I am only buying Packsaddle. I drive from Tumwater WA to Portland OR for the best buy.
I burned two tons of packsaddle pellets in my boiler this winter. I ended up cleaning out less than 1/2 of a 5 gallon bucket of ash and had minimal cleaning in the burner. Totally amazing. Now i will burn nothing else.
Harman P68, runs 24×7 (minus 30 minutes cleaning once per week) in MA just east of Prov, RI. Packsaddle pellets, although a bit pricier, are by far the cleanest and longest lasting pellets I’ve used too date. Very low ash, glass stays clean, cleanup is easy as the ash doesn’t stick. I use less to keep an entire 3-story 3900SqFt home warm than with any other pellet, so the price evens out. This year I burned some Easy Blaze (on nights above 35 degrees, and packsaddle for all the nights below that). Burned Blazer last year. Both are no comparison to Packsaddle, and I will purchase 6 tons on an early-bird special again this summer (if I can find a distributor in my area again).
I have a quadra fire castile insert. What setting on the control box do you recommend for pack saddle pellets?
I Have been burning packsaddle pellets for two years, This year I have noticed that I have a lot more ash and a coagulated buildup in my burn pot, I have a Harman XXV . On the most part I guess fpr the money they are worth it but Okannagans were much cleaner.
Packsaddle pellets are the BEST!!!! They put out the best heat and VERY little ash!! Trying to fine another place to purchase them around where I live because the place we purchase them always runs out
I switched to packsaddle this year after burning lacrete, New England, north country, and various other brands in past 5 years. What a difference! These burn so clean that I have not yet cleaned my stove once, after running it for a month of heavy use. I can tell it is clean by listening to the stove — when it ignites, the pellets hit the burning pot with a cristal clear sound, meaning no ash left in the pot. The ash tray proves that too. I used to be forced to clean my stove every week, but now….
Yes it is a little more expensive, but you get what you pay for. Definitely the best. My years long experiment is over.
I’ve been burning pellets for 7 years, I’ve tried a lot of different pellets both hard wood and soft wood. I purchased a ton of Packsaddle pellets and by far they are the best pellets I have ever used. They burn clean and hot so there is very little ash left behind. I empty the ash tray every two to three weeks and my stove runs 24/7. If your looking for a new pellet, you need to buy Packsaddle. The price is higher than the other pellets but it’s worth it in maintenance and cleaning.
