I've had a revelation recently as I started burning (more expensive) kiln dried wood in my log burner.
The heat, lack of smoke and clear screen led me to trial in 🌲Forest School. Would using kiln dried logs make fires a more enjoyable experience for everyone? I don't mean the 🔥 fire lighting element - we still use sticks thinner that a match, thick as a pencil etc - but the main fuel to, for example, keep the fire fuelled for a cooking session.
On a recent trip to Home Bargains (other low cost retailers are available 😂) I stumbled across a bag off kiln dried silver birch for a great price. This, I thought, would be perfect to try out.
To cut a long story short, as well as establishing a log store to dry available wood, I plan to order a larger load of kiln dried wood to enable cooking over a fire with minimal smoke and maximum success.
