I have my US stove corn/pellet burner and I am using denatured alcohol to lite it and it takes a few times to get it going. What do you guys with corn stoves use to get the fire going, should I buy some firestarter gel or something else?. Does the firestarter gel work well?

The best way to light any corn or wood pellet stove is to go buy those cheap fireplace logs you use for those romantic fires in your fireplace and take a screw driver and break off a bunch of chunks and put it in your fire pot. I fill mine about 3/4 full and I light it with my propane torch and then I let it get going real hot then turn on my auger to the slow setting for about 10 minutes then turn it up to your disired setting. Guaranteed to light and stay lit every time. Give it a try and the logs are a heck of alot cheaper than the fire gel. One log lasts me all heating season. Good luck and stay warm.

Not corn, but pellet stove. Throw a handful of pellets in burn pot, lite with Bernz Torch. Hold torch on pellets until start to glow, then close door. Blower makes instant flame. Takes about 15-20 seconds. Set heat level on "4" until room-air blower kicks on, then adjust up or down to suit.
Works for me.

I have an American Harvest and start it with a handfull of wood pellets and charcoal lighter fluid.
Start out at setting #1 and go up gradually.Takes me about 6 minutes to get to setting #5 which is the setting I leave it at.

We bought a heatmor corn/wood boiler. I used the Kingsford fastlight charcoal and put in a rag. Took a hammer and smashed it into small pieces and blended into thre corn. Then lite it with a torch. It worked very well. Good luck,Larry

I would invest in a 50 pound bag of wood pellets and some fire starter gel. I caution you against using denatured alcohol as my neighbor cracked the glass in his by using it because it got too hot too quick. I start mine on a handful of woodpellets and gel. I have to let it burn for a few minutes before I can put the corn to it or it will put it out.

I had one of the older technology Dovetecs years ago and I used a piece of one of those fireplace starter bricks. Seems they were made up of wood chips n parrafin or somethign but they sure worked.

I put a hand full of pellets in the burn pot and use a little propane torch with the flame on the pellets, oh, about a minute--little more maybe, till they get burning good, then shut the door. I've had 2 stoves. The first, if you turned the corn on too soon it would go out like the other poster said. But you soon learned just how it looks when to turn corn on. My present stove the auger won't start till it gets so hot.
