    Don't know where you posted your earlier question, but if you thought it was here, it wasn't... You are showing a total of two posts, both in this thread... If you meant to post it here, something burped, don't know where, and it didn't make it. Perhaps if you reposted?

    Goose,
    He posted it in this thread, see post # 96 a little further up.

    I think the Noobie question got lost in the activity of this hot topic. Perhaps someone should suggest he post a separate and specific question so it can be properly addressed. It would only get buried in this thread anyway.

    ETA - I just took the liberty of PM'ing him with the suggestion that he post his Noobie questions separately.

    You're right, my error... :red: I think the conversion factor I've heard is roughly 1.5 tons of BB's to 1 cord of wood, so that would be 3 tons for 2 cords, or 9 tons of BioBricks for 6 cords of wood - seems like an awful lot...

    However you are also correct, in that the rest of his question would best be asked in a new thread...

    Goose, I think you have it backwords. They advertise 1 ton of Bio's equal 1.5 cords of wood. ;)

    1.5 tons of Bios (at about 17MBtus/ton) to equal 1 cord of wood was a direct quote from earlier in this thread, The Biopellet website says one pallet (which IIRC is = 1 ton) is a replacement for one cord of 21% moisture cordwood... I'm not sure just who to believe, though I tend to be doubtful about manufacturer claims - (look at the claims for stoves about areas heated and burn times...) - but 1 - 1 does seem a bit more reasonable...

    BioBricks, use and storage...

    I purchased 15 packs as a trial from Terleckey brothers in Amsterdam, NY.

    The stuff is VERY easy to handle, and priced right to augment my local cordwood supply.

    It has, however, given me fits in storage.
    I'm down to the last 6 packs, and ALL of them show signs of moisture infiltrating the bricks through the package seams.

    Have the larger volume users a suggestion for outdoor storage?
    (Mine are stacked next to my cordwood, under a tarp and shed.)

    I have stored mine indoors however when they arrived on the skid they were wrapped with a very heavy plastic I would think they could stay outside for a short time. I am not so sure they could stay out long term.

    I went with this wood year becasue when I want a consistent 500 degrees I find it better with wood, but still like the bio's for ease. So thus concludes my year trial run.
