Like most first year burners I am having trouble getting seasoned wood. I know, I know, "you should have c/s/s this years wood year(s) ago" but of course I didn't know I would be burning wood a year ago... so all the guys who are 5 years ahead need not preach that. The wood I have seems to be a mixed lot; some reads under 20 and some over 30 on a moisture meter, when split and checked on the fresh exposed wood. It's extremely annoying to have to check every single split but it's better than burning green wood. I've ended up with some of the less then seasoned wood in the stove and while is does burn I have to keep the air at 75-100% or it dies out. I've searched here and read that there are different ways of determining MC; wet and dry. If I have it correct the EPA number of 20% is wet and my moisture meter number is dry? So what reading on my moisture meter equals the 20% that my stove is designed for? What would your cutoff number be if you were in my position?
