    I picked these chunks up for a shop I deal with at work. Most of them are 4"x6"x46" chunks, I've picked up 20 of them so far and will likely get more as they get more. They're mostly red and white oak by the looks of them.

    I've only cut one and it was wet, probably in the upper 30's or 40's(no reason to bother with a meter kinda wet) so it's years out. ;) Some of the more weathered ones may be better but I'm not counting on it. ;lol

    Don't matter if you have to wait a while to burn them. They will still make excellent firewood. Nice find indeed!

    Next to nuke plant Berwick, PA.
    They will pack nice and tight. So tight they might be too tight.
    You might need to experiment if you need o add some regular splits in with them.
    They should make good all nighters though.

    I agree if I packed it full of those it would just be a big cube. ;lol

    I laugh about getting these, I have darn near 20 cords of wood and I still couldn't pass these up. I thought to myself "Ohhhh in 2-3 years those will pack the stove really nice!" :)

    Are you cutting them to length now? They might season a little faster.

    Yeah, I plan to cut them the next time I have the saw out for something and have a few minutes to burn.

    Those would sure make for great stove fuel, but I'd be tempted to keep 'em for building something or other. Maybe a super-strong doghouse or a lifetime yard bench or landscaping things. Very nice find.
