    Here is another pellet that reminds me of NEWP and InstantHeat. Pellets are overall on the longer side and I needed to crank up the feed rate to get heat out of these. These look like some type of blend pellet but based on the websites they should be hardwood. The pellets look lighter in person than in the pictures. Initially, I had a hard time to get these to light. Ash was a fine medium, dark grey and ash volume was high. Glass had gotten dirty due to the low burn and inconsistent feed rate. I did not get a true high burn temp on these due to it being warm in the house.



    All in all these are just ok and DEFINITELY not the Timber Heats of old. Maybe a shoulder pellet if your stove can deal with longer pellets and higher ash. I'd rate these 2.5 stars.
