    This thread is pretty damn funny, and you should probably get the hose used by the fire dept. That oughta be big enough to put out the sparks ;-)

    It depends on how much vent you have foot wise and the fuel you are using, shorter vent (direct) and fuel with alot of fines and/or 'fly ash' will do this. I have never heard of it being an issue, although I understand your concern. Typically it is nothing to be concerned with, the fly ash burns out quickly once exiting the vent, but be sure everything is working well vent wise too. My vent goes up 4 foot and out 3 foot, and I see this happen with different fuels sometimes. It bugged me enough to make sure I don't have combustibles under the exhaust, that said I've never had a problem in 5 years. I also haven't burned down my deck/house with the chiminea which is a lot bigger risk than the pellet stove!

    Nobody said the questions were abnormal, but if you want help, you have to provide more information...I asked you 2 questions way up toward the top of the thread to try to help you, but you didn't answer.

    As a matter of fact, I have tried to help you with your stove MANY MANY MANY times, from your smoke problem to your pellet jam problem, and you OFTEN don't answer questions people ask you who are trying to help, including me.

    Best thing to do is get a spark bucket, it will catch all the sparks coming out of your pipe and then you can use them at a later time. OR maybe place an obama sign next to the pipe and enjoy the celebration. OR I'd get a big bucket of steam and place it under the suspect pipe this will dose all sparks.. OR if there are not many sparks coming out go back into the house and just enjoy the stove... ORR

    Both are good pellets imho, how long is the vent pipe? Direct or up and out? I need to get a spark bucket for the chiminea I guess. I'm trying here, not sure of the history of your previous posts.

    I am not quite sure how far out the pipe goes out. I know it's just straight out. No history of previous posts. They have all been very helpful in the past maybe other posters were on before don't know.

    I once saw a picture of a cat on top of a burning pellet stove. Now that's courageous!

    We're just playing. I have helped you in the past, but this thread was making me laugh and I just had to play. Sorry if my attempt at humor wasn't found humorous by you.
