BrowningBAR steered me to woodheat.com which will do a chimney install for a reasonable price without getting bent out of shape. I want a wood stove, my wife is sold on the box-on-the-wall (thermostat) so naturally she wants a pellet burner. This got me looking at those pellet basket things. I almost went for the pellet burner but the whole heat-without-power is a major plus for me. Anyone using a pellet basket in a wood stove? Our local hardware store had 40lbs of generic pellets for $4, so I said "what the heck" and bought a bag. In my fireplace I took some fatwood (3 sticks) and threw about 1 pint of pellets into an aluminum turkey pan. I attempted to light the pellets. It didn't kick off, it just smoldered endlessly. Not sure how well these baskets would work. Any experience?
