Heatmor 400 BTU extraction
« on: October 06, 2017, 03:11:07 AM »

Has anyone tried just burning slab wood in the outdoor boiler .  I can get 4ft x 3ft x 8ft bundles oak $50
its ruffly 3/4 of a cord per bundle . and I can get them by semi load . my boilers 54 inch deep . so its like
cutting them in half. and stack them in . any thoughts ?? has anyone tried it . is it a trade off of time spent
sawing and splitting . to staking slabs in boiler ? was told there bigger piece also and de barked . going to
look at them next week .  :thumbup:

I burned tons of slabwood in my 400 heat....worked great....especially in the fall and early spring. Dead winter I would mix it with splits....but it worked great regardless. I was getting 8ft slabs and all I would do is cut them in half!!

Have you used them before ? I'm concerned how long they will last.
Because there going to burn hot. Hope stove can transfer it in to the water fast enough. I only burned logs before.. :thumbup:
