In limited supply, Herefordshire apple wood is the ultimate for cooking on wood enthusiasts, promising to give that extra mellow flavour to your food, whether you cook it or smoke it. These logs are 100% British kiln dried firewood sourced from Hereford's own apple orchards and approved under the Woodsure 'Ready to Burn' scheme.
What are kiln dried logs?
This is firewood that has been force dried in kilns rather than dried naturally or more commonly known as ‘seasoning’ over a period of time. The aim is to get the logs to below 20% moisture content which is what they need to be for the optimum burn.
The time taken to kiln dry logs can vary depending on the drying system used, but typically it will take about 7-10 days in a chamber which runs at around 60 – 70 °C. At Certainly Wood we have a very unique drying system which runs at much higher temperatures with fans to circulate the hot air. Our kilns can dry wood in approx. 50-hour cycles and each time, we put 18 tonnes into a kiln and take 12 tonnes out – therefore removing 6 tonnes (6,000 litres) of water!
