Made my Monday finding this forum! New owner of an outdoor woodburner, about a month in use and love the heat!
My father in law and I both bought one. His is a step up in size but same manufacturer. We have an ongoing debate about split wood. I opt to split mine because I feel it burns better, cleaner and easier to handle. He throws whole green logs in. I mix, using a bit of both.
Are there any scientific or experienced advantages to splitting or fagetaboutit and cut 3' monsters?
