I've had a few small fires in the boiler over the past two weeks. Just enough to keep the boiler water warm enough to take the chill off.

I burn whatever hardwood that comes to the top of the pile. It is all stuff that gets dropped off by urban tree services Pretty much in order of quantity are:
  • Cottonwood
  • Maple
  • Ash
  • Boxelder
  • Birch, both white & river
  • Oak
  • Misc

Anybody using Blaze king with the catalytic burners? That's what I burn but my ceramic catalytic is really busted up. Burning mainly drift wood this time of year. Once I shift to standing dry in the winter im thinking of getting a stainless steel catalytic. Anyone have any experience with those?

My stove at the trapping camp is an old hot water tank.

Muskrat, my cousin uses a blaze king and swapped to a stainless cat...not sure of the reason but he says he likes it better.
I burn mostly spruce and birch but also just about anything I can get my hands on. I have an englander with a forced air duct ducted to about half the cabin. Burns a 24Ē log. I go through 5-8 cord depending on temps.


Just gonna send it...

I started a rocket stove build summer before last. I need to get it finished. I used to heat with coal until the furnace gave out. I heat with propane now and am not real impressed with it. When I get the rocket stove done, it will go in the basement and the floor will be warm again.

I always thought hackberry was kind of a crap wood, turns out if you get it at just the right time and donít let it sit too long, it actually makes a heck of a nice fire

Had a couple evening fires but fairly warm here still. I'm burning mostly locust with a good amount of ash, black birch, sugar maple, and hickory.

Black birch has really risen to the top of my list the past few years as well as sugar maple. Both are clean, split nice, and kick BTUs as high as locust, oak or hickory. I love the locust heat but it is dirty and can be tough to split. Like the hickory too but really don't like splitting it at all. Oak seasons a little slow for my liking, but love the heat. Wish I had more access to black birch instead of all the oak, maple, locust and ash. Ash everywhere, but dangerous dropping with overhead limbs coming down and I've had a couple split up the middle on me.

Burn around 5 cords and hand split all. I definitely get warmed up a few times by it.
