Hello, I'm trying to plan on next years stock and am trying to figure out which Pellets I should get and which ones put out the most heat. I have no special equipment so I tried putting a box in front of the pellet stove with a thermostat on top of it and set the stove to 2/3 setting. I tried testing with 3 separate pellets. All the variables the same. The ONLY difference was the temperature outside. There are people here who are much smarter than me so I wanted your opinion as to weather this is a good test as to how much heat the pellets put out. It's not perfect but I'm looking to gauge what pellets put out the most heat so I can purchase a bunch for this year and next. I have attached a pic but basically what I did was put the box you see in front of the stove, same distance from the stove, same setting on stove, door closed everything was identical and I started the clock. I put the box in front of the stove with the thermostat on it after the stove had been running all day and waited 20 minutes and then looked to see what the temperature was reading after 20 minutes. Here are the results. Are these results valid at all using this method? Maine's Choice - 90 degrees after 20 minutes LaCretes's - 97 degrees after 20 minutes Lignetics - 106 degrees after 20 minutes ( as a note the lack of ash on these pellets is amazing!) Do these number mean anything or did I just waste my time.
