How to approach your purchase:
1) If possible, buy your firewood as unseasoned (>30% moisture) a full year in advance (if available, choose Oak, Black Locust, or other species of very dense wood) but no later than late May (unless you can stack it in direct sunlight).
2) Do not wait until it’s cold because finding seasoned wood that has less than 20% moisture (ideally around 15% moisture) will be difficult to acquire. What’s more is that there are suppliers who will sell you unseasoned or semi-seasoned (21-29% moisture content) wood and label them as seasoned ones.
3) If your supplier stores firewood in a huge pile, then inquire if they shuffle the pile around with the loaders. If not, then there’s a high chance that the wood you’re buying is highly moist and can potentially even have fungus growth in the middle of it.
1) Always stack your firewood, preferably in a firewood shack. If not, then we recommend no more than three rows, preferably two, this allows more air to circulate through the stack
2) Do not cover the stacked pile until the temperature begins dropping to around 35 degrees. When and if you cover it, only cover the top, not the ends or sides.
There are a few causes for dangerous creosote build-up, here are the top offenders:
1) Moisture content in your wood.
2) Low temperature fires as well as consistent smoldering coals or wood.
3) Failing to have your chimney cleaned.
This is popular for outdoor fires as it’s much less expensive; however, you do go through it faster which is why Smokeys Firewood splits it thick. Also, contrary to popular belief, it is safe to burn pine indoors as it’s not the pitch that causes creosote but rather, the moisture content within it. Therefore, be sure to buy seasoned or season them well before winter!
