I have been looking through threads and you all seem like a good bunch and could maybe help me out. Back story. I have been looking for a pellet stove for over a year. I would like to have a multi-fuel stove due to the fact I could be more self sufficient. The one thing I can not burn is corn due to allergies. I was thinking a soy pellet mixture. I don't need anything pretty or large as this will be a back-up in our basement room which is about 600 sq feet. You ask back-up for what when the power goes out (yes I will get a battery back-up) I don't want to run the generator all day just to keep us warm. I was thinking this one ]United States Stove Company Multi-Fuel Corn/Pellet Stove with Legs .
