Yesterday I was splitting some wood and had to make room in my stacks for it. I am out of pallets to start a new row and need to clear a few small trees. I decided to take some pine that was split in the fall and move it up to the house to burn and make room for a higher btu wood. This pine was cut down 3 years ago and stacked in rounds. I am about 4 years ahead in my wood supply, so I normally have dry wood. I put in a load of the pine this morning and it would not burn! I ended up having to throw some more kindling under it and have the stove air all the way open to get it to burn. WOW. It's been a long time since I have burned wet wood, probably the first time i have tried in the PE. I started at my house with a smoke dragon and we burned wet wood for the first year as that's all I had. My wife was sitting about one foot away from the smoldering stove freezing. The temp in the house was dropping as well. As soon as I could get that load burned down, I filled it up with dry stuff and we are nice and warm again. Guess I need to haul that pine back down to the stacks to wait for next year. I brought up around 1/4 cord. Time to get some more pallets to stack it on.
