I bought a ton of the McFeeters softwood pellets on Saturday. They seem to burn really, really, really well. I am now, 4 days later, starting to get a discoloration on the windows. The burnpot is completely empty and I am sooo happy that I dont have to go tend to the stove every single day. With that being said, these pellets feel different than the other ones that I have bought. They are kind of "rough" almost. I dont know how to describe it, but you can feel it in the pellet. Especially when trying to push them around in the hopper. There is a lot of resistance. Because of this the pellets along the side wall dont slide down to the auger. They stay along the wall. I went to work yesterday and 8 hours later came home to a dead stove. I opened up the hopper and I found that I had 3/4 of a bag still left in there. Any ideas on what I can do to help make them slide down? Has anyone ever waxed the hopper to make that surface less gritty?
