    DSCN0210.JPG I got the last pallet of pellets from local HD and the first bag I put in the Elena had true to the manufactures name Wood fiber, there is numerous toothpick-fibers. The Harman may never notice but the effect when burning in the Elena is the toothpick hits the firepot and lights then lifts and rises on fire creating a 1 inch fireball. Interesting at night.

    The last batch of Heartlands had more noticeable fibers contained within the pellets and create break points on them. My stove will be humming along just fine then flare for a short period before settling down again.

    No its wood fiber-fibers. Its really sticking to the refractory. Was hoping to keep from humping bags up from the basement and only have twenty bags in the hole anyway. Todays temp was only 7 degrees below normal and no sun.
