I might have the opportunity to pick up a bunch of railroad tie ends for a pretty good price. Its from a small lumber mill so theoretically this would be a continual supply for next year and beyond. They are 8-16" long and the same dimensions as a railroad tie. How do secondary burn stoves handle wood like this, meaning squared off wood that will pack very tightly into the stove? I am mulling my options here. I burn about 6 cords a year and only have room for that much in storage, so I can never get ahead. If I buy the ends I can stack them tighter and taller and possibly even inside my garage (no bark, so I assume much fewer bugs) so that I can get a 2 year supply. Thoughts?
