9 inches would mostly fill my fire box. A TBN member who is knowledgable about wood and buring it cited a study he was involved in which demonstrated that smaller wood burns more efficiently. Perhaps John McC (sp?) will tune in and correct all of the errors in my comment, but I believe I covered the gist of it.Agree. My ideal size is 9" diameter. Still easy to toss in but does not burn right up. I settled on 9" because it is the distance between the tip of my big finger and the tip of my thumb when stretched out. I don't have to guess or eyeball the size when splitting, built in measuring tool. And guess what, I cut 18" lengths. Two spans of my hand, again, no measuring tool. Makes for a very even woodpile.
True, though my operating costs are relatively low and of course,we don't get paid for our labor; it does cover our expenses.You probably aren't getting rich from it, but isn't it nice to see that junk gone. Now something else can begin taking up the space you made.
