Hello Many Baby's sold in the last few years by dealers and big box stores came with the fire pot made for corn. There is a new Stainless Steel Fire Pot for wood pellets now. This new fire pot sits better in the cradle because the edges lay flat. This keeps air from getting around the pot and not going thru the pot. Also the higher air holes have been removed so more air flows thru the wood pellets for better combustion especially with the flat bottom. There is also a new bracket that replaces the stop bolt, that bolts on easily and will not break or snap. The new upgraded cleaning rake is fatter and does not bend as easily. This rod screws right in.
