Hello all. We have been operating a Magnum baby countryside for the past three seasons, burning mostly corn. We have it installed on our main floor. We are now looking to put something in the basement to provide our main heat and are looking at the Countryside 3500p. My question relates to the fuel / fire pot. Do we need a different fire pot when burning corn as opposed to pellets? I have seen applications of the fire pot with a stirrer for pellets and corn and some without.
No you do not need a different fire pot
for pellets or corn. But there are options
that will give you better result at lower
Two of the four Countrysides we need
to produce higher heat levels for up to 36+
hours without attention.
From what I have read here on the
forum the clinker fire pots work great on lower
heat settings (less fire ash, cleaner stove, no
stirrer) but I have not heard of anyone who runs
them on setting 3 or 4 for long periods of time.
We burn 100% corn in all of our stoves.
I sure someone else will add their experiences.
Hope this help!
