There's a pellet manufact. company down the road and they popped in today to tell me they're kicking around doing some "cooking" wood pellets - fruit woods, hickory etc. Has anyone used wood pellets in a rocket stove &/or would pellets work in a rocket stove?
I've looked at videos and reads many blogs, but didn't know if you could pack the hopper with pellets and if so, would that work? Didn't know if you could then set the rocket stove up with an auto-feed pellet hopper. thanks!

He is a member here and may pop in, but the video explains it pretty well.
