I have been using the golderod pellets ( a nice DJ product ) and mixing them 50/50 with a wood pellet (penningtons) for the last week. They have been going very well. I believe I will be able to reach my goal of cleaning the stove once a week, even though I did a quick clean yesterday since I lost power due to the storm. By the time I got home to get generator started stove was cool and I had a little time on my hands I checked it out and cleaned up. Wasn't as ashy as I thought it may have been. Heat has been good, 145-160* on low/ medium ranges. This is fine for shoulder season duty. House is very warm. Glass has been dirty no matter how much comb. air I give it. Small price to pay for using these pellets. The price is about $190-200 a ton here in the land of $300 a ton wood pellets. I dried the coffee pellets at work for the last few days and they have become quite popular. As the guys go by the hot tank I have them on they flip the bag for me. Today a few of the guys had a pellet in hot water trying to revive it back into coffee. They have been calling me alexahenty (sic) on the radio. All in fun. I will burn my bag of coffee pellets tomorrow night or Saturday and get some readings. I am beginning to save some grounds now for batch #2. I will definitely be drying them out on this round. Schoondog Thanks to coffee man and jtakeman for the coffee!!
