Barefoot

BTU per pound: TBA

Ash content: TBA

Wood Type: Cherry, Maple, White/Red Oak
, Walnut

Fines: TBA
These are simply one of the best. They are consistent from batch to batch, very few fines. Pellet lenght is consistant. When burned they produce very little ash, and clinkers. Barefoot is a step above the rest, they really deserve there own class. One thing to note about these pellets is the are a smaller diameter pellet. This means at the same feed rate you will be burning more pellets than a larger pellet would burn at the same rate. I have watched folks that sell these pellets tell customers that they will have to turn there stove back because these "burn so much hotter than other brands hot", which is simply not true. They simply feed faster because they are smaller.

That does not take away from the fact that they are a great pellet. The biggest con with these is they cost a little more than the average pellet, and as far as I am aware they do not have a pre-buy seasonal price change. You do get what you pay for, and with Barefoot that is an outstanding pellet. I actually use them for my Traeger pellet grill, because they are pure sawdust with no binders.

I can whole heatedly recommend Barefoot pellets.

Please add you experience with this pellet in the comments section.

  4. First year using the stove, Breckwell Big E with 120 lb. hopper. I have used these for about 2 months now and they seem to burn pretty clean. the burnpot is always empty when the stove shuts down with no slabs of clinker in the pot. I have only burned these and Lignetics so far and they seem to be good for my stove. That's my 2 cents.- Huggmeister

  5. This is my first year and they are producing lots of ash and clunkers. Not sure if I just got a bad batch

  6. These pellets do not live up to the hype. They are a very long pellet, this makes my augers very unhappy. The ash is also very chalky. It sticks to everything, and it is very hard to clean up. Its more stress on me, the stove, and the vacuum. I will never buy these again. I let myself get convinced that these were very good, but I should have stuck to what I know works. I finally got rid of them, and couldn't be any happier, in the heart of January I need a reliable product, this is not it.

  7. A simple life is good with me. I don't need a whole lot. For me, a T-shirt, a pair of shorts, barefoots on a beach and I'm happy. See the link below for more info.
