In our area, pellet sales are down, from last year...
At least at this point in the season.
Pellets that you buy at box stores (here) are absolute crap.
Pellets that are made from a lot of recycled materials, are crap.
We've seen people buy those $175/ton pellets, come back and by real ones for 269......
And they are happy to do it.
There was an outfit that started making pellets about 15 minutes from where we are.
When asked about the various specs on their product, they had no answers!!
Ash content... HUH??? whasdat??
Hardwood /softwood percentages... HUH???
Moisture content.... HUH??
And people buy this crap.
