Pellets

PROS: Convenience, price (compared to oil), automation, low emissions. Convection heat doesn’t dry the air as much as a woodstove.

CONS: The stoves require more maintenance and cleaning and are less versatile. They require electric power to operate.

Cordwood

PROS: Less maintenance, price (compared to oil), aesthetics. No electric power required.
