Interesting experience. Picked up four bags of corn yesterday, 5.00 per 50 lb bags. They will sell it unbagged at $140.00 per ton. The hopper (with extension) was about 1/3 full, and I dumped a full bag of corn bag in. Dumped a bag of pellets on top and went to bed. In the morning, the burn pot was pushing out burned corn cinders, and the stove was cranking out heat. I could not see any pellets feeding into the firepot at that time, only straight corn. Later on there were pellets and corn feeding in, but the stove seemed just as happy. Has me thinking. Pellets are way more expensive this year, and will probably be so next year as well. A 50/50 mix might save some dough. Corn is messy to handle, as there were pieces of cobb, dust etc, but nothing a good screening system couldn't handle.
