  • Creative Ideas for Storing Pellets
    Many people store pellets in bags in the garage or outbuilding, or in a bulk hopper. It’s also handy to have a small pellet supply near your stove. The container store them in can make a statement about your style and home design preferences. From a functional standpoint, the key is to choose a container that has either a large opening for scooping pellets, or handles for pouring them out. You can get creative and have fun with containers!
