    I read on the web that they have no wax and are made of sawdust - still Im leery and figured Id ask the forum to be on the safe side. (..just like I listened to your advice (not) on the magic heat thing )

    Are they safe for my stove ? Any side effects / caveats to using them ?

    Quote from the manufacturer's website:

    Sounds like they endorse it, but you could call them and ask.

    If you don't want them, put em on Craigslist and see if you can find a truly needy family you want to help.

    I am the needy family - if they will not hurt my stove I will use them.

    Cant say one way or the other personally, but it sounds like the mfr says they're ok in wood stoves and they don't seem to use wax or other stuff that typically gets jammed up in the cats or secondary tubes. I'd get the pallet and then call the mfr to clarify if they mean a modern EPA stove or they're talking about an old smoke dragon.

    I've heard good reviews of those here, BeGreen might have something to add? Should work fine, just don't load up the firebox all the way b/c those compressed sawdust products are denser than your typical splits.

    (nm, I think the one I heard about from BeGreen was the North Idaho Energy Logs...)
