The main reason why to buy and use kiln dried wood is that you always know what you’re getting. Firewood that have being placed in a large heat and humidity controlled kiln and left for days until the moisture content reaches the desired levels – normally less than 20%. The incredibly high temperatures of the kiln combined with the low humidity draws the moisture out of the wood quickly and effortlessly.When buying seasoned logs, you have to take the processors word that they’re “seasoned”, which is an ambiguous term which unfortunately means very little. They could have air-dried for 6 months or 3 years, and you’ll never know unless you test them yourself with a moisture meter before purchasing. This includes splitting the logs and checking the internal moisture content, which can differ far greatly in seasoned logs due to the nature of traditional air-dried logs; they don’t release their internal moisture as easily as when kiln dried, and logs that measure 20% on the outside could be 40% and wet on the inside.
