    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.

    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.
