    not in any pellet stove I have ever worked on , the pellet basket was about 5 inches by 5 inches , you could make a tiny kindling fire almost literally match sticks if the glow igniter was dead but a little gelled alcohol with a handful of pellets worked very well.

    You certainly can burn logs in a pellet stove, but you first have to spank it with a thick rubber paddle.
