The Story Behind our Oak Firewood:
When people think of oak, they think of large, sturdy trees that last for centuries. As you can imagine, this durable and dependable wood makes for a consistent and reliable fireside experience.
We work with suppliers in both North Georgia and North Florida to source quality oak firewood. Like all of our firewood products, Cutting Edge oak undergoes the most rigorous drying process in the industry. Each piece is cut to specific dimensions and then cooked at 250 degrees for 48 hours, far exceeding FDA regulations.
This drying process ensures that every piece of oak delivered to our warehouse, and then to your home, is free of bugs, mold, and fungus. It also enhances the fireside experience by making the firewood easier to light, smoke less, and provide more heat and light.
Because we send fresh wood through the drying process, you can rest assured that the wood won’t be dirty or decomposing. It will be sturdy and durable, perfect for burning inside a luxury fire.
Extended burn oak is a great wood to display. It provides a fresh feel to the air, but thanks to the more subtle aroma, it won’t bother people with sensitive noses. The thicker cuts of wood make a statement, giving your display character and pieces that can proudly sit front and center. Since it’s been purified by our drying process, you can feel good storing the firewood both inside and out.
Our oak product is also safe for both indoor fireplaces and outdoor fire pits. The low moisture content means you won’t experience creosote build-up in your chimney or experience smelly smoke sticking to your clothes.
Extended burn oak is harder to light than standard cut oak, so we typically recommend you first get the fire going nice and hot with our standard cut wood. When you use the Cutting Edge Fire Starter package, you’ll only need one match and have a roaring fire within a matter of minutes. Then you can throw on an extended burn piece, sit back, and relax for a few hours as your fire brightly burns.
Why Extended Burn?
If you love having fires that last all day or night, then the extended burn pieces are a great fit. We recommend pairing the extended burn pieces with standard cut firewood. The standard cut pieces are much easier to light, but once the fire is going you can add an extended burn piece or two and then sit back to relax for a long time.
