    Biobricks and related pressed sawdust products are widely available in my area. I'm thinking of putting a Jotul 602 in my small house, and wonder if I could burn a combination of biobricks and cord wood that I cut myself. I wonder how the bricks would fit in such a tiny stove, and if you can get several in at a time to extend reload time.

    Your thoughts or experiences would be appreciated, as I have never used such a small stove and would like the option of burning bricks in whatever stove I buy.

    Just started burning Enviblocks in my smoke dragon. I only get about 6 hours out of 3 blocks but my stove is pretty drafty. I like them for a evening fire on these warmer days, but I would go broke trying to use them full time at $320 a ton. I think if you filled the stove with them you would definitely overfire.

    Over been burning a mix of liberty bricks and cordwood in both of my stoves for most of the season. Square shape makes them easy to pack into a small stove. Not great by themselves unless put on a hot coal bed--they tend to smoulder and be touch to catch. They burn hot in the 602, but certainly manageable. I'll probably get another ton next year, even though I should have plenty of cordwood .
