    Lignetics might be the brand unless Hamer started bagging for TSC again? Cheat River might also be a hardwood? Not 100% sure though!!

    Where ttdberg at? He might have a good idea?

    Last couple season around here, the 100% hardwood at TSC has been Genevas (MC), Lignetics (from Virginia), and a random smattering of Currans. I expect going forward it will most likely be a product from the Geneva mill, whether you want to call it Geneva, MC, or Lignetics - all the same product, I think. These days when shopping at TSC, we only buy MWP. We have a good experience with them, and fortunately they are stocked heavily around here.

    speaking of Hamers, mildly dissapointed in them as they left crapload of very coarse ash last season..:tears:[ maybe they always did as it was 1st time burning them]..

    Maybe they're trying to pull a green team stunt. One is supreme and the other ''tis supremely supreme"

    Going by the sku's, One is the Lowes other pellet(all under one sku) and the expensive one is Greene Teams(with its own special sku). My local did the same thing last year on 2 similiar skids. They just grab any 2 skids as they are Too lazy to actually fetch a GT skid to plaster them stickers on IMHO........... Who's gonna bother to tell the difference anyway........... :loco: :crazy:

    :headbang: :picard:

    Knew I shouldn't a looked!! :doh:

    Sku #87059

    Sku #153269

    Was at the local Lowes today, and they already had pellets on display out front. Green Supreme :( Price was $260/ton. :picard: Their all hardwood (brand???) was $289.
