I'm looking for the true densified compressed sawdust logs here in Alaska, the ones that are so dense they sink in water, NOT the cruddy wax duraflame type logs. Basically a giant pellet.
I've got two reasons for wanting those;
1 - My firebox is too small to load up with enough wood to give me a 8 hour overnight burn (Rainier Avalon fireplace insert) and the sawdust logs can give me a longer burn time than straight birch cordwood will.
2 - I messed up this year and didnt cut and split my wood until late Aug and I've filled up my outside storage areas with wood that isnt seasoned enough, I've got 1 rick of last years birch that burns great but thats not going to last long.
All the rest is stuff that boils water out of the end grain when I try to burn it.
I've got a limited inside area where I can store wood, but I want to put the most BTUs worth of wood as I can inside.
The dang tree I cut had died over last winter and I thought it'd be well seasoned when I cut it - lessons learned; trees dont season worth snot when still standing.
I vaguely remember something about somebody starting a plant up near Fairbanks and one near Homer, but I cant find anything on the net.
Thanks in advance
