    I liked the made In main last year but they went up in price so wanted to try the green supreme and I'm loving them. I had a few of the MWP 65/35 blend from last year and find the green supreme to be hotter. We're off today being its so mild here in central ct. What have the temps been like for you so far?

    60 currently and 56 tomorrow. With a low of 31. We drop to the 40's as the highs and 27/34 for lows. With those we usually just run med with lower feed and let her cycle at night. We've been spoiled now with the warmer house!!!

    Run my cab50 98% on medium. On low the flame never exits the pot and even though I "just know" it is too low and will die out, it never does.

    I felt so comfortable with my setting on medium and open air that afterwards she didn't stay lit being the feed was too low. So back to my original settings. It's what works for us. What have your temps been like so far?

    Question for all CAB50 or PS50 owner. Has anyone had pellets stuck under the angled section in the hopper. The piece from the left back corner angled towards the auger? Also using Green Supreme this season. Love the her but a lot of fines/sawdust. Jams up the auger at least once sometimes twice a week. Other than screening, any suggestions? Feed a quarter open and damper wide open.

    Never had that problem. I let mine burn down to almost empty so that I can vacuum out the dust in the hopper and on top of the auger.

    How often do you vacuum out your hopper and auger? How many bags? I'm using as I said green supreme. Nice but lots of sawdust. My father and I made a screen to screen the majority out of it because we've had quite a few misfires because of blockage. Probably every 7 bags or so. That's how much we have. Do you think opening the feed a little and pulling more pellets up the auger would help with it or still have the same issue with the blockage regardless of feed?

    Probably every 8 bags or so.

    I would open the feed gate up and see if it makes a difference. I'd try to narrow down if it happens all the time or certain settings etc...

    Does it do it on low/med and high? Regardless of setting?

    Settings I haven't changed. I hate to open the feed and burn more when I already have a higher than norm active flame.

    never had that issue, I vacuume the hopper out every 2-3 weeks when I do my cleaning. I just let it burn till empty that day.

    I'm screening mine for now. Just our pellets just have a lot of sawdust/fines. You can actually see it accumulated on the bottom after they've been stacked and settled. The weird thing was the buildup of pellets that were under that corner section. Very odd. Lol
