    The first year I cut mine at 20 inches. Now I cut them at about 18 inches. This results in less bridging.

    I find 16" to be the best length for me. I will have a longer piece every now and again but I have had less than stellar results when I load the firebox with 18"+. More bridging, harder to start, etc and so on....
