    Things are getting slow around here so I guess this is as good a time as any to mention that I cooked a potato in my pellet stove last week.Yeah,I wrapped it up in tinfoil and set it in there way off to the side where it wouldn't bother anything. One lonely sad potato. Anyways,I had the stove on the lowest setting (gotta start somewhere) and after 1 1/2 hours,I used some tongs to snatch it out of there,removed the foil and there was one hot potato.It could've used a little more baking but not bad for the lowest heat level. Now I wonder if I can fit a pie in there?...........hmmmmm!!!

    I will stick to pellets myself ;-)

    What stove do you have? Not that I would even try, but the only
    place for a potato in my stove is in the ash pan..lol

    They used to throw potatoe peelings in wood stoves to help clean the flu out years ago (or maybe some still do this)!

    is that a canadian reference? Funny thing is,all I ever see in the supermarket is regular bacon and I only have ever had back bacon once,it was way overpriced and lacked any fat to give it flavor.But a pellet stove baked ham would be neat!
