Yes, for three years. Also in EFM's, AA's, Keystoker's and a Yellow Flame. It works just fine with the exception of needing an air adjustment in EFM's and some Keystoker's. No issues, and it is much easier to come by then rice.
You probably won't find it bagged, but some places will special order it if you want. :idea:

You can use buckwheat size and shouldn't have any trouble.

Thanks for the replys
Which one gives the most heat?
Or would a mix of pea and buck work best
Thanks

At the end of the day, BTU per pound is the same no matter what size it is. Perhaps some end-users that had tried various mixtures could shed light on what worked best for them. But a pound is a pound.
