    Holy LaCrete! These pellets burn very hot and clean. Glass stayed very clean. Ash is light grey and very light. Ash volume might have been a tick more than I was expecting but like I said it was very light. Dense pellet, the 40 lb. bag easily fit in my hopper with room to spare. Fines weren’t bad at all considering these came via FedEx from way up north.


    All in all a very good softie that burned very hot and clean. If you can get your hands on these go grab some and give them a try! These should be 4.5 stars but again, that’s not one of the options.


    Highly Recommend!

    I agree on the ash, a little more than expected, certainly more than Blazers but very light and fluffy. My second favorite pellet.
