I searched for pellet stoves and there were many posts. But nothing new. Most were from 2005-2008.
Since we have used SO MUCH propane this year we are talking about purchasing a pellet stove with battery back-up. I do know the stove does not get as hot, so I'm not sure you could cook a pot of soup like a woodstove. But, the mess of wood, no place or time to cut wood, etc... makes us want to consider the pellet.
A friend has/had a corn burning stove and it really did heat the house!
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
