    As mentioned in my first post, we used to burn wood, then got a coal burner.

    After some great info on what I should be looking for to enhance my fireplace, I know they sell coal and wood pellet inserts.

    So, how many folks here burn coal or wood pellets, versus good old fashioned cord wood?

    My main reasoning for asking is I dislike the labor involved with cutting and splitting wood. But the rewards are damn near impossible to beat. Especially with plenty of downed hardwood at my fingertips.

    Just trying to figure out what I want to do.

    thanks,
    Blair

    I burn cord wood because it appears that if you burn pellets you spend a hell of a lot of time on hearth.com asking what the funny noise your pellet stove is making could be caused by.

    And the other half of your time on hearth.com telling other pellet stove owners what you think is causing THEIR noises.

    When I pull the rope on that chainsaw I know what causes the noise that comes next.

    if you can get free wood,i would go wood. And don't think of it as labor but as excersize.

    Eric Johnsons signature line says it best.

    If you don't mind the work (this is of course relative) than cord wood is the way to go.
