I moved into my new house late in the season, and had no time to bring in wood. I decided to try compressed wood bricks. They have really worked well. They burn slower then lumber and leave almost no ash. They light easy and fast. I figure a ton of bricks equates to about 1 3/4 cord the way we are burning. Right now I have a bout 3.5 tones out in the garage. I think that will bring me through the winter. I got it delivered at $210 a ton. I will still bring in wood if I can get it free, but I think I am going to buy at least 2 tons of bricks each winter.
Cooool. Never heard of these wood bricks before. You think they recycle scrap wood to make this? Can I ask where you got these?
Yes, Leftovers from sawmills in Ohio (EZ-bricks). Also no additives or binders, 100% pressed hardwood. If they gets wet at all they fall completely apart, but that has not been a problem. I plan to buy or make a press. I can get wood chips and sawdust free locally.
