Why is Lekto Kiln-Dried Firewood so brilliant? Well, it’s premium firewood, and it’s kiln-dried. But what’s the big deal with kiln dried logs and why one should not use seasoned firewood? Well, the difference between kind dried and seasoned logs truly is huge.
As its name may imply, Kiln-Dried Firewood is produced when ‘green wood’ (recently chopped wood with a moisture content of around100%) is placed in a large kiln that has been specifically designed to season firewood and dried at a certain temperature for a certain period of time. Kiln-Dried Firewood is the output of a process that reduces the moisture content of newly chopped wood to 20% or less.
Kiln drying wood is only one method of reducing the moisture content of recently chopped ‘green wood’, however, with ‘seasoned firewood’ being another kind that you’ve probably also seen. For those not familiar with the term, seasoned firewood is wood that has sufficiently dried to or below a 30% moisture content level either by ageing the wood outdoors in the open or with overhead protection. Not optimal, but still good.
While Seasoned Wood is still a popular choice, Kiln-Dried is, in our opinion, considerably better. Still unsure why? Worry not! Whether you use open fire, pizza ovens, fire pits and chimineas or a good old wood burner here are 5 benefits of Lekto WoodFuels’ Kiln-Dried Firewood:
