    Strong bags
    Wish a Menards was close by to score these cheaper!


    Love me them 'Sets, these rantes burn HOT and CLEAN! They are definitely my favorite big box pellet. I contacted Somerset the other week to see if they would be shipping any to my area this year. Low and behold, she told me a shipment was going out a few day later to the Lowe's that carried them last year. Bingo! I went and grabbed a ton of them.
    This seasons pellets seemed to be a tad longer than last year's batches that I have/had. The pellets are very dense as a 40 lb. bag easily fits in my hopper. Really the only knock on these (if there is one) is they do burn quickly but that's not a big deal to me. I don't know what else to say, IMHO, these really are a great pellet! If you see these, grab some and try them out.

    Highly recommend!
