Gotta go with Dennis on that . . .
Oct - oil (well, not this year)
Nov - Slabwood (pine/hemlock)
Dec - paper birch
Jan - Oak
Feb - Oak
March - Oak early/slab late (when my body is just worn out and can't be dragged back into the woods anymore)
April - slab
SEEMS as though there are different approaches...all sound good, keep smiling!
Pretty normal if you ask me . . . right now I'm mostly burning my punks (wood that is a bit punky, but dry), chunks (short pieces) and uglies (pieces that are twisted, crotches, messed up from the splitter so I cannot pack the firebox very tightly) . . . also burning a bunch of poplar and softwood. No sense burning the good stuff when you don't really need to go long and hot right now.
2/3rds of my wood is in my garage. It was brought in and stacked random. The remaining 1/3 is all Oak under cover and will be brought in around December when I have more room. So for now, I cherry pick when I bring it in to the stove. Meaning - I am grabbing uglies and junk wood, and setting the oak pieces and premium BTU wood further back in the stack for later in Jan and Feb.
