    My pellet stove is finally up and running. Thanks to all of you that helped me out in all sorts of ways. Special thanks to Mike Holton, imacman, Andy Mays from AM FM Energy, and all the others who answered specific questions for me. You guys are awesome. I'm kind of sad winter is almost over now, I only have a couple more days of cold left for the season. I'm posting some pics of the install. I made a hearth pad out of slate.

    My personal hero, LI birm helped with the install. He's the best. He did a great job installing the OAK and making a custom cover to protect the opening from any rain or snow getting in. I foresee many warm nights by the fire with Scotch in hand.

    Now all you guys have to do is tell me where to get cheap awesome pellets for the rest of my life. No pressure.

    Good job and congrats! Winter isn't over yet here.
    Only a couple more days of cold? Not here... You should put your location
    in your profile, and your stove in your signature.

    After an install like that, I hope you are talking about a single malt in front of that flame!

    Makes me wonder why there aren't coaxial intake/exhausts for pellet stoves, like they have for gas fireplaces..
