I am thinking the wood will need to be properly tested before you attempt to burn it...you do not want to damage your stove. Send it all to me and I will thoroughly test it and ensure it is safe to burn.

I've got at least 5 cords of it,i'm burning all the old stuff,reason being the only stuff that will be stored outside from now on is stuff in the drying process,i've got all covered under roof and on concrete storage now except for just about 10 cords.But i know what you're saying.

Eight years old! You sir have the patience of jobe. I would have had to burn that osage already but i never was good at keeping my hands out of the candy bowl lol. I salute you.
Just fortunate to have unlimited access to good firewood,that stack was put up when i purchased my first BK.Four X four treated posts on top of cinder blocks,then covered with that black tar paper.Primitive set up did well.

Can you split a piece and take a picture of the moisture reading?

That's some premium stove chow, right there. >>

My guess is 16%, about the lowest we get in our neck of the woods..so to speak. ;) And about the lowest you are likely to see in PA, as well..

It might not be dry yet, but are you ever in for a treat when you split it. The fragrance of White that has been sitting a while is out of this world! You immediately understand why they make bourbon barrels from it..that vanilla really comes through. :)

I've been keeping them because they are perfect size for exactly 1 in my NC-30.

And I already had to split them a little before to square them up ;)
