I will suggest at least 6 cords of season wood ready for a gasser and 12 cords if you go with a MP.I’ve got an endless supply of wood. 13 acres of woods here, and good friends with about 4 different tree company’s that love to dump wood.
No gasser is rated for anything outside of wood. I know someone that burned coal in a E series and had to replace all the refractory and warped all the steel. Burn chamber temps were double a wood fire.I also work at a coke and stone foundry from time to time. I brought a bucket of coke home and threw in the burner. Must not have been running hard enough to make use of it though.
maybe in a gasser?
I'd generally agree, but it does depend on your drying conditions. I have a high open sunny airy place. With this dry summer I think I could have burned Ok after a year. Usually 2 gets it pretty good. The 3rd leaves no doubt you've got some decent rocket fuel.I will suggest at least 6 cords of season wood ready for a gasser and 12 cords if you go with a MP.
bottom line is you will need to be three years ahead on wood to have properly seasoned wood every year. No matter what anyone tells you the hardwoods will not season in one or two summers.
I would agree, and how well the wind and sun can get to your wood stack. I've seen wood get to 15-20% in one summer, this year it isn't happening for me tho, it's super wet this year.Weather definitely plays a big role
