    Default Where can I find compressed sawdust logs

    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

    There is a plant scheduled for construction in Fairbanks in the next 4 years, but no one is making them locally that I'm aware of.

    There are a few places to buy them off the net, I have the links at home; & I will update this when I find the links again.

    Thanks Blybrook, appreciate that, I found one place in WA that sells 2000lb pallets of those logs at .64 each, which works out to 243ish a pallet, shipping though was gonna kill me.

    There is a plant here in Bonners also. But like you said the shipping, $$$$$.
    I'll get a phone number if you'd like.

    I've looked through my files and the only one that I've been able to come up with is the GrenHeat blocks. They are in Indiana @ (260) 768-7519, but I did not find a website link. I did a search on google, but couldn't find anything directly to that company (GrenHeat, LLC; run by the Miller Brothers).

    I saw that one, but it did not have the same name on the bottom (GrenHeat LLC). The link has Mandeo, LLC; and no information on how to purchase. So it could be a dealer for the Millers.

    Good luck.

    Based out of Finley, ND. They carry them in the big box stores
    down here, but they may be worth contacting if you are buying in
    bulk.
