Tell me about it. I had another thread out there, I should have been more specific. :D I have a very large wood burner and a very small wood burner. I'm finding I'm spending more time tending and keeping wood together for the small one since it burns much smaller chunks (not LOGS) than my large stove. Thinking I may switch to pellets for that stove in the next couple of years, but I'm rather put off by buying industrialized product to burn. But since then I've gotten another wood burner so my purist self is set I think. Dunno. Tending to two fires and keeping up with two wood stacks is getting a bit tiresome.
