lol ... hey tjones, you are correct on one thing and that is... I am a Sooner Fan ... For whatever reason, I was a Sooner fan before I ever moved from KS to TX and then to OK in 1969 I don't want to go to the mailbox thing unless forced to. I am going to try the Tube next time per Todd Johnson's suggestion to me today when I talked to him by Email.....( I will be 79 this month and am hearing impaired, so have to talk by emails and not by phone.) He said to put it on bottom shelf ... back side ... I wrote him back asking if back side or if he meant left side and am awaiting on his reply. My pellets are stored inside of my house, I do nuke my pellets ... 2 minutes two times and have on occasion tried three times @ 2 minutes per time. Some people never nuke them and claim they have no problems, but based on all of my problems, I am skeptical about those claims.
