Post Subject: Heat logs

If you can keep them absolutely dry and are happy with smouldering sawdust then they certainly will burn in most stoves but if they will stay in overnight I think is open to question. My brother in law gave me some a number of years ago and I was not impressed. If they got damp they tended to revert to sawdust and I felt they did not produce the heat that ordinary logs do. They also produced little or no flame. From what I have read elsewhere most boaters that use them also augment them with solid fuel. I would suggest not usually ordinary coal but a "manufactured" ovoid type fuel of which there are many brands.
