I've used them almost exclusively for a while and I'm very happy. They burn very well with minimal ash, and the bags have almost no sawdust at the bottom. They recently raised their regular price to 75c/lbs, but it's well under the $1/lbs benchmark and they have a promo right now, $210 for 320lbs (66c/lbs). I know that seems like a lot, but you can split it between a couple of people, or just use your pellet grill really often (which I do).
I am thinking of ordering the mixed load https://pitmasterschoicepellets.ca/shop ... or-ontario. If anyone interested in splitting an order, PM me (I am in the beaches area of Toronto).

Bringing up an old thread. Stocktrack shows that Westbank sold out at $4 / 40lb bag (Maple). Any RFD'er who got some at that price needs to stand up and take a frickin' bow.

Just got my first pellet smoker. Can you store pellets over winter?

Yep. I store my indoors. However, I suspect that they're good anywhere as long as there's not excessive moisture.
I've never had any issues with them falling apart, etc. I think that they're compressed significantly enough that that's generally not a concern.
Enjoy your smoker! I love mine. Makes delicious food, and I like the process.

I plan to store mine in the basement. I assume garage is not good as it can attract moisture?

Also how long do they last? Like a year max? I also read don’t leave them in the bags...or all this overkill?

Sorry, I don't know the specifics of breakdown.
You might be overthinking it a bit, but others can jump in.
I've had pellets in my basement for over a year, and when opened, they seemed "fresh".
So, that's at controlled temp and humidity (within reason).
I would suspect that a garage (depending on where you live) can have significant fluctuations in temp and moisture.
If you store them in a basement with "normal" conditions, I wouldn't be concerned.
If on concrete, I would put down some cardboard. It does slowly draw moisture out, albeit probably extremely slowly (especially through poly).
I'm not a scientist, so take this all as a grain of salt. :)

A Canadian garage in winter is one of the driest places on the planet. As long as you aren't getting moisture dripping onto the pellets, or soaking up into them through the floor, they are generally OK.

Just check that they are not 'swollen' or too crumbly before using and you'll be fine.

Depends on where you live. Central Canada...yes.
The coasts and Ontario, not so much. There are many specific scenarios as well.
But, I agree with your guidance on swollen or crumbly. It generally should be obvious when pellets aren't usable.

Finally a location near me had the 40lb Competition Blend and 20lb Charcoal Blend for $5/bag. Ideally I'd like to pay 12.5 cents/lb for the charcoal one also, but 25 cents/lb is still a good deal. I'll be storing these in my basement.

Just waiting for the 40lb Maple Blend now. Lowest is currently $10/bag.

Thanks! That was a heck of a deal.
Down to 33 on stocktrack. 95 when I went there around noon.
For anyone in Calgary, it's Deerfoot City location.
