    Hi -

    I was at a historical event last weekend. We camp in canvas tents which are typically treated for fire resistance. Stoves are small, tend to be sheet metal, 3-4" vents.

    Anyway my buddy brought a bag of pellets, reasoning that for $4 he might avoid some time in the cold hard rain. Well he was correct. He just used the little ash shovel and threw a couple scoops in once in a while and it burned hot and clean. We even teased that perhaps the 'pellets' where harvested from Three Mile Island since they burned a great deal better than the wet stuff the rest of us burned.

    ATB,
    Mike P

    Sounds like it was some good thinking ahead.

    Hope to have one this year. Check out the stove pipe coming out of the tent. Around here you just cut down a small dry spruce that a porcupine has girdled and use that for firewood. Their dead, dry, and everywhere.
