As of 2015, the top-rated brand that manufactures wood pellets is Barefoot, according to the website Wood Pellet Review, which gives the pellet a gold rating. AllAboutWoodPellets.com and WoodPelletPrice.com also give the brand favorable reviews.
Manufactured from clean sawdust and clean wood waste generated from Barefoot?s hardwood flooring facility, the pellets are considered outstanding in quality, cleanliness and consistency. Periodically tested independently, Barefoot pellets are super premium rated and have superior low ash content due to the quality of hardwood used as raw material, which includes sawdust from sustainable species such as maple, red and white oak, cherry and walnut. Small in diameter, the pellets are energy efficient with no carbon build-up, burn cleanly and are protected from moisture by bag hoods.
