The Kiln Drying Process

Producing high-quality Kiln Dried Wood is a nuanced process. It starts with selecting suitable wood from sustainable sources. Hardwoods like oak, ash, and birch are preferred for their dense structure and high calorific value.

The logs are then placed inside large professional drying kilns that carefully control temperature, humidity, and airflow. This accelerates the natural dehydration, gently extracting moisture from the wood over 4-6 weeks.

Throughout the process, moisture content is regularly tested to ensure it reaches the target level below 20%. The uniformly dry logs are easier to ignite, burn hotter, and produce less smoke and residue.

Before bagging, each batch goes through final quality control checks. This guarantees every log meets our strict standards for moisture content, sizing, and consistency.

Using Kiln Logs Safely

While Kiln Dried Wood make excellent burner fuel, its important to use them safely:

  • Store in a dry, well-ventilated shelter away from direct sun
  • Always use a fireguard when burning logs
  • Provide adequate ventilation in the room
  • Never leave a live fire unattended
  • Extinguish properly before going to bed

With basic precautions, you can enjoy cosy fires and stoves without worry. The natural drying makes the logs ideal for clean, efficient heating.

How Kiln Logs Compare to Other Wood Fuels

Not all firewood is the same when it comes to home heating. Kiln Dried Wood have distinct advantages over standard 'wet' wood:

  • Lower moisture - Dry logs ignite easier and burn more efficiently
  • Reduced residue - Leaves less ash and creosote buildup
  • Longer burn times - Extended high-heat output per log
  • Consistent sizing - Allows effective fire stacking
  • Higher calorific value - More BTUs released per pound
  • Prevents rotting - Stays fresh if stored properly
  • Sustainable sourcing - From managed timber forests
  • Cleaner emissions - Less smoke from optimal moisture content

Heating With Kiln Dried Logs

Kiln dried logs are an excellent choice for heating purposes. The kiln drying process removes moisture from the wood, allowing it to burn more efficiently and produce more heat output per log. Kiln dried firewood has a moisture content of 20% or less, compared to fresh cut wood which can have a moisture content of over 50%. The lower moisture content means kiln dried logs will light quickly and burn hotter. Using kiln dried firewood for heating saves money over freshly cut logs since fewer logs are needed to produce the same amount of heat. Kiln drying also kills any insects or fungal spores in the wood prior to burning.

Cooking With Kiln Dried Wood

Kiln dried wood makes an outstanding cooking fuel for grilling, smoking, or baking. The consistent moisture content and sizing of kiln dried firewood allows for precision temperature control when using it for cooking. The lack of moisture prevents food from absorbing excess water vapor when exposed to the smoke and heat of the fire. Hardwoods like oak, maple and hickory that have been kiln dried are ideal for smoking meat, fish, or vegetables. The drying process caramelizes natural sugars and resins inside the wood which adds flavor to food. Kiln dried wood burns efficiently and evenly, making it easier to maintain proper cooking temperatures.

Kiln Dried Wood for Ambiance

Burning kiln dried firewood in a fireplace or outdoor firepit provides mood lighting and ambiance. The low moisture content prevents hissing and popping sounds as the wood burns. Kiln drying also removes saps and resins that can cause creosote buildup in chimneys. This makes kiln dried firewood safer and cleaner burning in decorative fireplaces. The natural aroma of burning hardwoods adds pleasant fragrance to the air. Kiln dried logs provide a steady, bright flame for several hours, giving off cozy radiant heat. Their consistent burn makes kiln dried logs ideal for romantic fireside gatherings.

Crafting With Kiln Dried Wood

Kiln dried wood is prized for crafting furniture, cabinets, turned bowls, and other wood projects. The drying process stabilizes the wood so it won't shrink, split, or crack as it acclimates to the moisture levels of the surrounding environment. This allows artisans to machine, saw, router, and sand kiln dried lumber with less waste. The stability of kiln dried wood also takes finishes and stains more evenly. Smooth sanded kiln dried stock requires less preparation for applying varnishes or protective surface coatings. For woodworkers, the dimensional stability of kiln dried lumber is a major advantage over fresh cut wood.

Kiln Dried Shavings For Animal Bedding

A specialized use for kiln dried wood is to produce clean, absorbent animal bedding. Logs are spun in a large lathe, peeling off long shavings ideally suited for bedding horses, chickens, and other livestock. The shavings allow urine and feces to filter down to the floor of the stall or coop, keeping the animals dry. Kiln drying sterilizes the wood, removing any mold or bacteria that could cause health issues. The low moisture content prevents the growth of harmful organisms in the bedding. Kiln dried shavings are very absorbent and control odors better than lower-quality fresh wood shavings.

Why The Cheapest Logs Are Not Always the Best

When purchasing firewood, the cheapest logs may seem appealing. However, there are a few reasons why the cheapest wood is not always the best option:

  • Quality - Budget wood is often not kiln dried or seasoned properly. This can lead to excessive moisture, sparking, smoking, and poor heat output. Well-dried, high-quality firewood burns cleaner and more efficiently.

  • Consistency - Cheap firewood is often a mix of various wood types and irregular sizes. Kiln dried firewood is uniform in moisture content, sizing, and species. This allows for a predictable, consistent fire.

  • Efficiency - The money saved upfront on cheap logs is usually lost later in poor burning performance. More low-grade logs are needed to produce the same amount of heat.

  • Safety - Improperly dried wood is more likely to contain mold, fungi, and bugs. This can cause chimney fires or spread to your home. Kiln drying eliminates these hazards.

  • Convenience - Quality kiln dried firewood is cleaner and easier to handle. Bundles are neatly stacked for loading and storage.

  • Enjoyment - High-grade firewood provides better aroma, less cracking and popping, and cozy radiant heat perfect for ambiance.

For maximum value and performance, it pays to buy quality kiln dried firewood over the cheapest logs available. The added upfront cost is a worthwhile investment for years of heating and cooking enjoyment.
