Considering buying Granules LG softwood pellets to burn in my Castle Serenity stove next year. I have been burning Hamers Hot ones and I find that the burn pot gets clogged up after a few hours of burning these pellets. I have to turn it off and clean out the pot. I have never burned softwood pellets in this stove. Looking for opinions on softwood vs hardwood for the Castle stove

I have the same stove and it does not like hardwood. Same issues you have. Been burning straight soft wood and running like a top.
