Kiln-Dried Firewood for Cooking
For backyard cookouts, a fire pit, barbeque, high-end restaurants, or campouts, we have quality kiln-dried firewood for cooking. Cooking wood can recreate the feeling of camping and cooking marshmallows over an open fire, but most of our customers want that special heat and taste that cooking with wood creates.
Cooking Wood for Restaurants
For restaurants trying to get the highest BTUs, we recommend our standard-size wood, 16" long, as it burns hotter and longer than most other cooking smaller wood splits. Has a higher heating value than green wood. Because of its moisture content, a cord of green wood can weigh as much as 70 to 100 percent more than seasoned wood, so it supplies less heat and can be twice the amount of work to handle. Wood that is not well dried will create markedly more smoke and creosote build-up.
Hardwoods provide for long burning and good "coaling" qualities. A bed of ashes underneath the grate produces steady heat and aids in igniting new fuel as it is added. The fire will continue burning if small amounts of wood are added regularly.
Boston Firewood will bring premium firewood products to your place of business that are always kiln-dried, bug- and disease-free wood. With Health Department inspections, no one wants to bring in more sources of contamination and bugs.
Home Owner Cooking Wood
For situations that require special splits and lengths of wood, we can also provide this. We have tooled to custom cut our standard pieces of 16" long firewood down to other sizes. We will cut the wood and give you both pieces based on your needs. This includes small smokeless portable metal fire pits, small pizza ovens, or compact European wood stoves. Call and let us know what you need, and we will cut it for you to fit the situation. Check out our custom lengths page.
In addition to the length of the wood, customers who are cooking pizza at home with a wood-burning pizza oven are looking for the hottest fire they can get but also often have less space for the wood and can not fit 16" long pieces of firewood. We cut down the standard pieces of wood we sell to pizza restaurants in the area to be shorter and no as thick since the ovens are smaller. For more details, please take a look at our pizza firewood page.
Properly-seasoned wood produces the most heat and produces the least creosote! It's not the kind of wood you burn that makes the difference, but whether or not the wood is seasoned. With year-round operations. Cooking with wood fires makes consideration of creosote a major safety consideration. Questions? Please call us at 781-254-2773.
