Benefits of Cutting Edge Firewood

When we say we offer the best firewood available, we mean it. Saying all firewood is the same is kind of like saying a gorgeous lake in the mountains is the same thing as a polluted neighborhood pond. Sure, they’re both bodies of water, but the experience is totally different. When you choose Cutting Edge Kiln Dried Firewood, you’ll experience the difference before you even strike the first match.

Testimonials

We are passionate about great fires, but we aren’t the only ones! Here is what other people have to say about our Cutting Edge Kiln Dried Firewood:
We love this wood for our fire pit and for my husband smoking meat. We are sad to be moving to Raleigh where the artisan delivery service isn’t and it won’t be economical for us anymore.

Works great in my Ooni - some tips to manage high cost . . .  Love the miniature splits - highest quality, consistent size pieces and very hot, clean burn in my Ooni Karu oven. As others have mentioned here, the cost per pizza can increase significantly using all wood for your cook. Still less than a high quality wood-fired pizza place but not enough of a savings IMO since you need to do all the work. By my estimates, a cheese pizza Cooked in my Ooni Karu is averaging around $6-$7 using all wood (including costs of high quality pizza ingredients). I found that I can bring that cost down by about half if I use a high quality lump hardwood (oak or hickory) charcoal as a base and then add 1 or 2 splits of wood about a minute before putting the pizza in the oven. The trick is to make sure you have a very hot bed of glowing charcoal and then add the wood to get the flame spread over the pizza. I did not notice any discernible difference in taste or quality using this method opposed to using all wood.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question about the best way to use or store your firewood? Our firewood experts are here to help. Below you’ll find the answers to some of the questions we hear most frequently about firewood. To learn more — or ask a question you don’t see listed here — feel free to reach out to us for more information.

Yes. Several factors can cause firewood to go bad or lose its effectiveness, including:

  • Using firewood that comes from a diseased tree.
  • Choosing firewood that has not been treated, seasoned, or kiln dried.
  • Using firewood that is not pest-free, which can lead to decay and further infestation of your other wood.
  • Employing improper storage methods, which includes leaving firewood exposed to the elements and fluctuating temperatures.
  • Neglecting to remove any rotting or diseased firewood from your storage area, which can cause otherwise healthy firewood to deteriorate more quickly.

The best way to avoid bad firewood is to purchase a high-quality product from Cutting Edge Firewood and follow all recommended storage practices.

All Cutting Edge Firewood is free of disease, mold, fungus, and bugs, and has been thoroughly kiln dried for maximum effectiveness. However, using improper storage methods or storing our firewood with wood from other distributors may lead to wood damage. A good piece of firewood is sturdy and clean without visible damage or missing bark. The wood should be firm to the touch and free of discoloration.

A few indicators that your firewood has gone bad include:

  • Visible signs of fungus or mildew growth.
  • Wood that is soft to the touch, indicating excess moisture or rotting.
  • Insects in or on your wood supply, or leftover pest residue or markings that could indicate an infestation.
  • Peeling or falling bark.

The answer to this question varies, depending on your specific woodburning goals. For example, our cherry firewood produces the least amount of heat and burn time, but the unique aroma makes it the perfect choice for a special event or gathering.

Hickory firewood burns longer than oak and is a popular choice for indoor fireplaces, while many prefer oak when burning outdoors. You can also choose extended burn firewood for an even longer burn, which is perfect for large fire pits and fireplaces or events requiring a strong flame throughout the night.

Many kinds of wood are suitable for general burning and home heating, as well as cooking and smoking foods, including oak, hickory, and cherry. Other woods — like maple and apple — are great for culinary purposes, but less effective for general use. The wood’s cut and size are also important to note.

Wood burning applications call for logs, split wood, and uncut rounds, while wood for cooking is most beneficial when cut down to small splits or wood chunks. Always choose the correct size firewood, splits, or wood chunks to fit your fireplace, wood stove, fire pit, or grill. For the best results, do not burn firewood outside of its recommended use.

Building a fire is easy if you have the right supplies. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Prepare the area: If you’re building an indoor fire, prepare your wood stove or fireplace by removing any ash or soot leftover from the previous burn and ensuring the area is clear of debris. Open up the fireplace damper and set up the protective grate. If you have a chimney, make sure a professional has cleaned and serviced it, especially if this is your first fire of the season. Doing so will ensure a clean and safe woodburning experience that everyone can enjoy.
  2. Clean your outdoor pit: If you’re burning outdoors, prepare your fire pit by clearing away any grass or debris inside the pit and creating a comfortable seating area around it. You’ll also want to allow the area ample time to dry after rain, so you don’t waste matches or fire starters by trying to light them in wet conditions.
  3. Gather supplies: The most essential part of your fire is the fuel. Kiln dried firewood from Cutting Edge Firewood is the best way to ensure a bright, long-lasting fire. You also need a match and some fire starters. For best results, avoid using leaves or household paper products, which could create excess smoke. Never burn garbage or anything that could explode or release toxic chemicals, like batteries and plastics. Excellent-quality wood will help you achieve a warm glow without the need for lighter fluids or accelerants.
  4. Assemble the fire: Build your fire by placing your wood in a criss-cross pattern known as the “log cabin” method. In this technique, you lay two pieces of wood parallel and place kindling between them. Stack two parallel logs on top of them, facing the opposite direction. Add another layer if you want, then use the fire starter to ignite. For outdoor fires, ignite a small pile of starter and, as the flame grows, add kindling and firewood piece by piece in a tent shape until you have a roaring fire.

All Cutting Edge Firewood is easy to light, thanks to our special kiln drying process. You can usually light your fire with a single match! To begin, choose a long match — like our official cigar matches — and strike it to light your excelsior fire starter. Add pieces of kindling to feed the flame. To make things even easier, add a fire starter package to your next Cutting Edge Firewood shipment. Each kit includes everything you need to start a fire in minutes, including the fire starter, kindling, and matches.

To manage your fire, you’ll need to stoke it regularly as needed. Add more firewood as it burns. One your fire is lit — especially if outdoors — do not leave it unattended. Remember to extinguish it thoroughly before leaving.
