How to Pick the Right Firewood for a Clean Long Lasting Burning

April 26, 2017

If you are in search of firewood that is perfect for indoor fireplaces, or for outdoor camping and grilling, firewood that has a long lasting and clean burn, then you are not alone. Most people don’t give much consideration to the type of firewood they buy, only judging it after they’ve used it whether it was ‘good’ wood or not. Thankfully, there is a way you can pick the right firewood for clean long lasting burning, before you buy it.

It’s true, not all wood has the same characteristics when it burns, and some firewood produces more smoke than others, and doesn’t burn as long. There are various qualities and types of firewood available, and understanding the difference between these will help you pick the right firewood.

How to Pick the Right Firewood that has Long Lasting Clean Burn

Basically, there is softwood and hardwood, and light colour and dark colour firewood with various qualities. Typically, light colour firewood burns easily compared to dark wood, but do put off more smoke. Most light colour firewood sold is softwood, and darker wood is typically hardwood, and burns longer and cleaner, making it ideal for both indoor fireplaces, or outdoor grilling. Although, there is high quality light colour kindling that burns cleaner than some lower grade dark wood.

The truly best way to determine what is the right firewood to use is a personal choice from experience trying firewood from suppliers that carry consistent quality of firewood, such as John Tiras – a premier charcoal and firewood wholesaler and retailer.
