    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.
