Wood Fuel Pellets - 40-Lb. Bag
I made a basket to burn these is the firepace. It works good and is a lot cheaper that log or buying firewood.

I bought these wood pellets, they seam to perform like other wood pellets I had purchased in the past. In my experience all wood pellets create a great deal of ash, these are no different !

Being a newer pellet stove owner I did not realize there was such a great difference in the quality of pellets out there. I soon figured out why these were so cheap. They breakdown while in the hopper jamming up the auger. You can only load one bag at a time due to having to constantly clean the sawdust from the auger. Spend the extra money and buy a better quality pellet.

Cold in Tennessee
I used these pellets last years and found them acceptable, although they created a great deal of ash. For this winter I bought 3 tons of pellets. I've been able to burn only about 1/2 ton. Pellets from other sources will burn fine, but for some reason, these pellets jam up my auger. Northen Tool may find themselves with a return of 120 bags if Spring ever comes.

Big Heat Fuel Pellets
Just came accross this doing some other shopping. My brother in law up in delaware recommended these pellets to me as the best , hottest and cleanest he had ever used. when shortages in 2008, i tried Penningtons and the Natures earth and both were awful. Then I tried Bg Heat and had problems like you describe to. I called all 3 companies and Big Heat was the only ones to call me back. They really took care of me. App. during the 2008 season, some of these guys used contract packaging and had trouble with a plant in Georgia. Turns out my brother in law used the Big Heat pellets out of Virginia. The people at the office said they had dropped the Georgia manfacturer and ever since I have been really happy with them. Seem like people who care and really helpful. I recommend the now like my BIL best ones I've ever used ( now).

Horrible pellets. My neighbor & I split 5 tons of these. By far the worst pellets either of us have ever used. Everything that has been posted in other reviews is true! Save your money, & stay away from these!!!

Big Heat or Big Disappointment?
I have been burning pellets as my primary source of heat for years. These pellets are by far the worst I have ever seen. They are very inefficient and extremely dirty. The bag has all sorts of random trash in it....peices of grass, wood splinters, and who knows what else. I wouldn't burn these in my stove again if they were free. They produce so much soot and ash the stove is a mess after just a couple bags and we're going through them at probably twice the rate of good pellets.

I bought one ton of these wood pellets. I found them to be of poor quality. Approximately 1/8 of the 40 lb. bag was wood dust. I had to sain the dust from pellets to get to the good pellets. I contacted NTE and explained my concern.
I have been using a pellet stove for three years with no problems until now. Quality is important and so is the heat . A word of advice" Look around and try them before you buy pellets. NTE struck out with these wood pellets. I have no complaints on other product that I have purchased from NTE.

Price Great! Pellets Lasting Power Could Be Better
Purchased one bag of these pellets to see how long one bag would last before I purchases more. Good thing I did, they only lasted about 6-8 hours total. I burned the stove about three times at 1.5-2 hours each time. Good for a romantic night...not really great for burning to heat a house and/or room for more than a couple of hours... you would go broke long before you ever heated the house/room for one winter. I would purchase them again just knowing that they wont last long, and knowing that I would never use them as a primary source of heat...not even for one room.
