    I was wondering if the pellet stoves you use have any kind of "smell" I mean can smell a difference between any difference between pellets or corn?? If so has anyone tried throwing in a handful of coffee beans...they should burn..??

    When I was researching alternatives to oil, I was concerned about the possiblity of introducing a system that would add smoke or other oders to my living space. My son and I both have allergies that can border on asthma. The one thing that I liked about the idea of a pellet stove is that they leak very little if any smoke assuming proper installation. When I got my Harman XXV, I was happy that it did not cause a problem. Long answer to your question is that I don't believe you will smell it. Unless of course you open the door.

    The coffe beans should burn but may deposit oils in your burn pot.

    Coffee beans burning often does not have a nice rich coffee roating smell that you imagine when you open a fresh bag. It can be acrid and overwhelming.
