Kiln Dried Firewood

Knowledgebase > OPERATION > Fuel Choice > Kiln Dried Firewood

Hardware stores and grocery stores often sell packs of kiln dried firewood for around 6 per 0.75 cubic foot. It is more expensive than cordwood, but can be a great option for fueling your small wood stove.

Kiln dried wood has been heat-dried, so it’s already fully cured and ready to use in your stove. And since the heat curing process kills any insects that may have been living in the wood, it’s safe to transport kiln dried hardwood across long distances. If you’re purchasing kiln dried firewood for travel, look for the USDA certification on the label.
