When looking into purchasing outdoor chimineas and firepits, researching and buying the right wooden logs is essential to get the most out of your fireplaces. Two key factors which impact on the heat output and how long they burn for are the moisture content and the density of the wood.
Spend less time trying to light your fire and more time enjoying your outdoor burners with easy to light fires. Kiln dried logs that are dried to a low standard may contain around 25%-50% of water. This makes them difficult to light and if lit, produces less heat than kiln dried logs that have been put through a drying schedule. Burning logs with a high moisture in your firepits, chimineas and stoves can cause irreparable damage to them.
