Quality firewood is essential for the operation of your wood fired oven. Here is some basic information about firewood.
Be sure to get your moneys worth when purchasing firewood. Cord sizes are regulated and must comply with industry standards. The best way to be sure you are getting what you are paying for is to measure your delivered firewood, which should be stacked neatly.
Full cord equals 4’ x 4’ x 8’ = 128 cu ft
½ cord equals 4’ x 4’ x 4’ = 64 cu ft
¼ cord equals 4’ x 4’ x 2’ = 32 cu ft
Firewood should be seasoned, split & ready to burn. Wood cut should be approximately 12 to 16 inches in length and 2 to 4 inches in diameter
