Well... I am a first year burner and fell into the advertised "seasoned" wood lie. I have a cord of oak that was seasoned in log length for 1 yr and split and stacked in a 12ft tall pyrmid generated from the wood processor. I do not think that this is the ideal seasoning situation; and i found a few pieces of the concrete slab in my cord, which to me indicates that it came from the bottom of the heap! Lucky for me I got my hands on about 1/3 cord of real seasoned wood which was awesome, but know its gone... I started looking at Eco bricks or bio bricks. They are safe to burn in a wood stove? How many do you put in at a time? What is the BTU output of them vs cord wood? Do you think I can mix a eco bricks with my damp wood?
