    As soon as I opened the box this bag came in I knew these were going to be a pretty good pellet. Pellets are very uniform in size, have a very nice sheen (fed well) and are a reddish oak color. Ash was medium to dark grey in color and fine. Fines were super minimal which you can tell right away in the clear bags.


    All in all these burned very well and left the glass clean. One unusual thing was the short burn time with these. I did over-feed a bit but nothing I haven’t done before. The ash-cake was probably due to me over-feeding the stove a bit to get these finished up in a day. I would liken these to a Barefoot or Turman product. I rate these a solid 3.5 stars.

    Highly Recommend!!!


    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***
