Is it possible to have wood too dry for burning? I've seen random comments on this site saying pallet wood is too dry to burn. I understand that concept from an over firing the stove standpoint, but from a creosote standpoint I don't. In addition to the few comments I seen here there's a comment on the energy.gov site that states: "It should have a moisture content of 20% to 25% by weight. Some well-seasoned wood can in fact be too dry for today's airtight modern stoves. If you place wood that is too dry on a bed of coals, it will instantly give up its gases as smoke, wasting unburned smoke and producing creosote buildup." If an EPA stove is at proper operating temp that smoke will be burned and less energy wasted boiling off the water, less smoldering etc etc. My owners manual makes no reference to wood being too dry... The site in reference:http://energy.gov/energysaver/articles/wood-and-pellet-heating 99% of the comments here say drier is better so I'm a bit perplexed how wood could be over dry.
