Countryside Grain Burning Stove

FTLComm - Tisdale - Tuesday, April 4, 2006

Pour up to eighty pounds of grain into the hopper at the back of what looks like a typical wood burning stove and it will pump out between 15,000 and 50,000 BTUs for a weekend. When you consider the cost of transportation and low market prices it would seem that burning grain makes a lot of sense.

Dan Salisbury and his DASal company (306 873-3268) is the local distributor for a very interesting product. Developed by American Energy Systems Inc of Hutchinson Minnesota the company had been making wood stoves and realised the potential for making a stove designed specifically to burn grain. Of course in the American midwest that means one thing, corn. With its hefty $75 per acre Federal subsidy the stuff is almost free and because of its high oil content makes an exceptional fuel. Though the Countryside stove is certified to burn wheat the best local heat producing crop are field peas.
