    The other day a friend stopped by and asked about the potential of using Rice Coal in a pellet stove. I have a Quadrafire Castille which can use wood pellets or corn. Is it possible to mix in Rice Coal with pellets to obtain a hotter fire.

    Wouldn't recommend it. Think about what coal does to coal stove grates. They degrade you replace them. It'll do the same thing to your heat transfer tubes and burn pot but at an accelerated rate because the materials aren't as thick.

    Honestly Mike it won't melt down immediately. I have seen it done, this person just runs it on low. Been doing it for a while now and his pot and exchanger system shows it. But it's not like it melted on the first go around. The stove will not hold up for a long enough period of time to make it worthwhile though, it's definately on it's way out.
