    What is the range you want? I thought it was 15-25% if I remember right? I am going to test mine tonight, of course it jsut rained!

    15-25% is right. I have found anything higher usually sizzles.

    Don't use this (I know, I know). Make sure it has been split for the year, and I'm thinking it is good to go. It is almost to the point that we can sell the cords and pay for the oil and still make a few bucks. Does anyone else not equate your time to the price of your OWN wood? I don't as I enjoy the time from the woods on the stump to the stack. I'd almost like to keep doing it, if I can get paid for just that.
