So, first year of real burning - 6+ cords of wood, some dry, some not. During collecting this wood from 20+ places, some got mixed in and now I have a cluster^%^ of 2-3 cords of wood (mostly maple) that I need to sort as I'll be short this year. I can't split every piece and test it with my moisture meter. So, I'm doing the knocking thing - if it rings, it's dry, thuds, wet - once in a while I'll test - maybe I'm right 65% of the time. So here's the question. presumably I should knock the piece I'm testing with a wet piece because: Dry/test: who knows which one is ringing? Wet/test: if it rings, then then the test must be dry Yes, no? Shut up and burn it all?
