I have a couple questions, and before I Google it, I thought I'd ask all you experts. A recurring theme on many of these threads is the issue of wood moisture content. 1) What are the percentages measuring, is it moisture content by weight or by volume? 2) We know how many BTU's there are per pound of wood, and even per different species of wood. However, if the average moisture content of the sticks are averaging, say, 25%, how many BTU's are you truly getting out of the wood, vs. transporting the moisture up the chimney? Obviously, you need to know the answer to #1 before you do the calculation. If someone answer's #1 for me, I can do some example calculations for #2, but anyone else, feel free.
