First year with a stove caught me off guard this year and I ended up buying wood off of craigslist that the seller said was seasoned. Well, the wood is awful! I am not sure if it is wet or green but either way it doesn't burn at all, it hisses and I can see moisture come out of the ends when I try. I am so pissed! A friend at work said I could try and put a tarp over it with a dehumidifier but after 24hrs of trying that I have very little moisture accumulating so I am not sure that is going to work at all. Does any one have any rec'ds or am I just plain out of luck? The guy I bought the wood from is not taking any calls and I will probably post something on craigslist telling people to stay away from him, but other than that I am not sure what to do. Did I mention how pissed I am at myself! Edit: believe it or not, the guy just called me back and said he would come drop off more wood that he is sure is dry. still doesn't solve my problem but at least he is making an effort.
