were they exposed to water? I am surprised they can actually become wet.
I used Rutland 84 to clean up my glass. It is wonderful.
weird...never seen that before (a dirty glass with biobricks). I thought that your glass gets dirty when your wood is wet.
How many bricks did you...
if you question the quality of the wood, you should try biobricks (or equivalent) and check if you see any improvement.
where do you measure the temperature?
here is the thread:
Sorry I wasn't clear: for the wood you intend to burn, have you taken a piece, cut a piece and measured the moisture or just measure the moisture...

I hear you. First year with the Rockland for me too. I am burning exclusively biobricks. You can read why here:...
