How do you think your meat gets freezer burned? its the dry freezer air sucking the moisture out of it. want to stop freezer burn? freeze meat in a bag of water so it is surrounded by ice. or vacuum pack...no air circulation no burn. I would think wood put in there would do the same. I have always thought that winter is when most seasoning occurs in the wood pile. Heck summer is so humid around here I just dont think it wicks moisture out of wood much when the rh is in the 70's.
