Has anyone had an experience with this product? It looks like something that could aliquoted into small amounts for kits.

Here's the mfg site: http://www.firebrandindustries.com/pages/392343/

They say they are regular pellet stove pellets with some methyl alcohol incorporated into them.

You could probably get some regular stove pellets ($4-5 for 40 lbs) & add a bit of Heet gasoline additive at time of use and get the same result.

Since alcohol is the "active ingredient" and it tends to evaporate, I wonder if they have a limit to their useful life?
