The firewood discussion

Why would anyone buy sick firewood that had to be cured for an entire year before it is healthy to be healed from the violent and unnecessary act of splitting it?

This is why you don't split wood.  It won't get sick and infected from splitting it.

 

Dafuq?

How do we know the wood was cured? I mean it's not stamped "Cured" by like a sanctioned government body like "Grade A" beef is.

Could the smoke from cured wood that wasn't really cured make you sick? I was coughing a lot when the "allegedly" cured and split wood smoke hit me.  I don't recall that ever happening with just natural wood logs.....

Un-split wood = healthy wood = healthier smoke.  STOP spliting wood!

I think I have improperly cured smoke inhalation illness (ICSII).  Happens when split wood wasn't thoroughly cured, is still sick and is burned.  Releases nasty pathogens in it's smoke.

I think It's responsible for Tex's back pain.  How is everyone else feeling? You prob have a natural immunity from being exposed to it over all the years you've been incorrectly splitting wood.

Go natural.  Leave 'em logs.  Ban splitting wood.  Werd.

Someone need firewood? I'm about to pay 50gs at work for about 7 acres to be cleared.  And it's full of dead stuff waiting to be cut, split and burned.  Free!

Can we hunt it? Lol. Can clear some shooting lanes.  Lol

Almost 50 wooded acres and sadly no.  Township ordinance of no discharging fire arms. Believe me, my office would be in the middle of those woods if I could shoot there.

Logs DO dry out....but as I said previously, the wood dries out quicker if split. 
 

Dry logs burn as well as dry split wood..

Hmmm....Split - not split / Taylor Ham - Pork Roll.  A new test question for newbies?

Yep.  But it doesn't have to be cut though.  Logs dry out too.

You missed the conversation about how "logs won't burn.  Wood HAS to be spit to burn." :)

But logs dont fit in wood stoves split wood does

Split wood lights a lot faster too.  Logs have the least surface area per volume of wood, and it's protected by bark.  Split wood has more surface area, and the exposed wood is a lot easier to get burning.
