Well last year I didn't even burn one full bag until the first week of Dec. Last night I got to crank up the stove and will get to run it today and tomorrow before it warms back up. My pellet stash wont be delivered until next week. Luckliy tractor supply had some Ozark hardwoods in stock so I got 3 bags. This is a new pellet for me so maybe it will be a good backup to the softwoods I love so much. So far everything is looking good besides a pin hole of smoke in the pipe joint that I am working on.
