Lighting wood pellets with the Pelleteer is easy, 100% reliable and almost effortless.
Unlike a cord wood fire, a pellet fire lights from the top. Place starter block, Fatwood or starter gel inside front portion of basket, allowing flames to rise and spread over the incline of the pellet surface. Open draft so flames quickly spread and heat your stove.
After flames have spread and are well established on the pellet surface, cut back the draft to prolong burn and avoid over-firing.
If pellets should smoke increase draft to allow more air into the stove to stoke flames.
