Does anyone know of a pellet stove that will burn larger than wood pellet size fuel? Specifically, hickory nuts. Is there a pellet model most suitable for conversion somehow to burn the larger size nuts. I burn hickory nuts and they can make a nice fire. Trouble is it's only practical to put in a limited amount as the fire will get too vigorous if too much is added to the conventional stove. A hot fire is required too start and the nuts burn nicely. Because only a small amount can be added to the regular stove at one time, the fire requires too much maintenance. Filling a large external hopper with nuts and regular feed as in the pellet stove could provide overnight heat. Any links to pellet stove diagrams would be appreciated.
