Obviously dangerous but just curious has anyone else tried it? I place metal pans on the lowest rack to prevent any contact with the element. I don't have access to true seasoned wood (maybe next year) so I have been putting several splits into a 300* oven for several hours. We run space heaters in the kids rooms, so I turned them off to offset the electric bill for running the oven and left their doors open instead. Been warmer here the last few days as well. The first time I did it I felt the wood was noticeably lighter. I re-split it and got a puff of steam out as it was not completely dried. So the next load I left in for several hours. Every 30 mins or so I open the door just to get a chuckle out of how much steam come bellowing out. By the way I would never attempt this if I wasn't in constant attention of the oven. Seems to me to be a better option than trying to burn wet wood.
