I may run out of optimal wood before the season ends and was thinking of mixing in some energy logs if needed but then started wondering if pellets may work for that as well. I was pricing both and so far pellets seem cheaper and easier to find in larger quantities. But I have no experience with either. I've heard some mention here of burning pellets in a non-pellet stove. Anybody have success doing that? Does it require a special device to keep it all together? Or should I forget it? I also thought that you would have more control over how much you used on a particular load.
