    Oldspark says been doing it this way for ever and it works for me, no moisture problem what so ever except for snow that blows under tarp in blizzards.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. There's only one difference between me and you Jake, I place the log in the stove like a loaf of freshly risen bread :) !!

    OK, truth be told I too gingerly place the splits and rounds in the stove . . . don't want to bash the baffles or accidentally strike the glass . . . I just took some poetic license since I thought it sounded better describing how I carefully handle the wood until that final moment when I am rough with it . . . when the truth is I'm just a big ol' teddy bear who still handles the wood gently even at the very end . . . thought truthfully it has more to do with not wanting to damage the stove than being gentle with the wood. ;)

    Putting wood in the stove like a loaf of bread in the oven describes it very well.

    Putting the wood in the stove is just the perfect end to a long journey!

    I assume that you, as almost all central Oregonions do, are talking about lodgepole pine. It's sure handy how this stuff cure up in one summer.

    I probably won't throw the cover on until the snow flies. Even then, it's just to make life easier when I have to get wood from the stacks to refill the wood cribs next to the house.
