Has anyone tried to load a Jotul 550, or similar size insert, north south. The Jotul will take a 14" split north south. I'm wondering if there a qualitative difference in the burn time or quality with a fully loaded N/S insert. I have a bunch of wood that was delivered >24" and won't fit E/W so I have to cut it at least in half so I can make sure I'll have a fair amount of wood in the future that will fit N/S. So the the question is; is it worth taking the extra effort to cut some stuff to 14", or should I just cut to fit E/W and not waste my time?
