    Compressed sawdust bricks are convenient,and I'm thinking of getting some to use in addition to cordwood. I have an outdoor space to store them; I got a recycled industrial caged plastic tank with the top removed,on its side will hold a pallet of bricks. Any comments or experiences to share? My stove is a Waterford Fiona.

    This probably belongs in another forum, but I have used them mainly to get a year ahead with my wood supply or mix with wood that is less than seasoned. It will be hard to keep coals through the night for a restart in the morning with just bricks.

    I did the same as hockeypuck last winter. Great in a pinch but I feel even softwood is better.
