Longtime reader, new member -- have valued the comments and information. We installed a BK Princess Insert this fall and have been enjoying the wood heat plus the reduced need for oil (good news with oil at $3.79 a gallon here in South Central CT). I have this forum to thank for motivating us to move to the woodstove. Question about burning bark on its own. Seems basically OK, because most of our splits have bark on them, so we are burning bark to some extent daily. However, I remember reading some posts raising a concern about bark and increased creosote. Had lots of bark fall right off some sugar maple (I think) scrounge and oak during the splitting process. I have a decent pile of just bark, and was wondering if I should put to the spoils pile, or get off the ground to season and burn in a year or two. Would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.
