What method/technique do you use for loading pellets in your stove? Keep in mind that I have an Accentra insert so the hopper opening may be smaller than some other models(especially FS stoves). This is my first year running a pellet stove and I have only burned 2 bags so far. I was planning on just putting the bag in the hopper, cutting it open, and just pulling the bag out. The smaller size of the hopper opening makes that method a little difficult. So should I just cut the bags part way open and pour them in? I think that way would make more fines and get more dust in the house. Or I was thinking of getting a coal hod to dump the pellets in the garage and then carry it in the house to pour them in, but I would probably only be able to fit a 1/2 bag at a time in the hod. Any other ideas to keep thing easy and clean?
