Lignetics


Updated Review 11/13

To put Lignetics in a word they are "OK". I have met people who swear by this brand, but they are often people who only have burned a few brands of pellets and those pellets were less than ok.

The picture of the pellets on the left show a pellet that is much lighter in color than the ones I got this year. My experience has been the lighter the color the better the pellet. The lignetics are rather dark (see picture below). A few possible reasons for dark pellet are 1. more bark content and 2. the saw dust has sat outside for a while.

Color aside, the lignetics burn fairly well. I am currently burning them in a Harman PC45 which is not very picky about the pellets it burns. The create a heavier dark ash. The amount of ash is just a little above average.

The heat output is also in the average range. Like I said these are a very OK pellet.  I would add that they seemed to be priced fairly. Some of the pellets that I consider really good are also $20-60 more per ton.

The previous review was not written by me, and the author went on and on about the oder, I have not noticed that with these. PFI rates these as premium pellets, my take is they are on the lower end of pellets with that same rating.

In conclusion these will work well for most people. You will not be wowed and amazed at their quality, but the will burn pretty reliably. They also represent a good value in that they are typically a less expensive. An OK pellet with a better than OK price.

  1. I've used Lignetics a lot - never noticed the odor. I find them better than other brands I've tried.

    1. Not as good as Golden Fire. I'm going back to Golden fire because they don't burn as fast.
