    There are two varieties of these Orford pellets. One is rumored to be Eagle Valley and the other one I’ll be testing is Pinnacle Doug Fir.

    Despite what the pictures look like, the pellets are blonde in color and have a nice sheen. They fed fairly well but I did have a little funneling. Fines were low considering these were well traveled. Ash was a darker grey color, coarse and fluffy. I did develop a dark ash cake at the bottom of my fire pot. In the ash picture you can see in lying on top of the ash.

    All in all these gave off good heat burned well but I have to ding it for the ash cake that lined the entire bottom of my fire pot. This batch seems to be on-par with an LG pellet. I rate these 3.5 stars (borderline 4)


    Disclaimer: as with everything....YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY....the review is just my opinion of them ***Pictures may not reflect actual color of pellets and ash***
