    Well it's cold outside and everyone here has been running their stoves. I just wanted to know what pellets you are liking and what pellets you tried are duds.

    Burning Okanagan Douglas Fir. They're a bit pricey but VERY hot with an impressively small amount of ash.

    PA pellets are putting off great heat. I think they have quite a bit of ash, but no clinkers.

    Went through 1ton of LaCretes not very impressed with them,lots of ash always caking up in the burn pot and never getting pushed off.Now burning Lignetics from Idaho,made from western conifer sawdust,red lettered bag.Much better than the LaCretes, hotter and barely any ash.Will see how good they really are in the next day or two with temps dropping to zero.

    My Harman is set on Room Temp at 70f with max feed at 4, fan (Room Temp)pot on the highest setting and igniter on "Auto." I let the stove's algorithms handle the feed to attain the temp I want. I just feed it pellets, empty the ash pan and clean it every month or so.

    Burns Clean

    Leaves a Black Carbon in the bottom of the firepot that is rock hard ! Hit it with a putty knife every few days life is good.
