If you are looking for firewood for an outside firepit, I have have what you need. I am in Mansfield township. Text if interested 908 310 5320


And the difference between outside fire pit and inside fire place is??


Perhaps the wood for outside is pine or another soft wood, Josh? Those should not be used indoors.

The wood I have is too big for my wood stove but is ideal for a campfire type setting. Hope that clears your confusion.

The kind of wood used.
If you had a fireplace you would know that.

I wouldn't have known that either - up until this past winter when my husband decided our primary source of heat would be our wood-burning stove and it was baptism by fire (no pun intended) for me. I was up every morning at 5 am feeding the fire and he stoked it the rest of the day and night. LOL.

The softer woods burn much faster and create a lot more dirty smoke which ultimately results in a higher creosote concentration in the chimney. I wouldn't have known that a mere year ago, however. :-D


I suppose I could lead with a "getting wood" joke....but....

As for outside fires, the soft wood likes to snap, crackle and pop spreading sparks n cinders wherever it goes! Not good for drier days or lower tree canopies as the embers sail off into the evening sky. Kindling maybe.

Cathy: round here, look for Locust, better btu's per cord.

Here's the tale of the tape for wood. http://worldforestindustries.com/forest-biofuel/firewood/firewood-btu-ratings/.

Thanks Jerkiest Girl! No- not really, you added nothing to the discussion.

I have a fireplace.

It doesn't have an instruction book, and they didn't teach fireplace 101 when I was a kid.

I just put in whatever dry wood that fits and looks like a log. Usually on the side of the road for $5-$10 somewhere.

But now I know! :)


Cathy- thanks for explaining instead of chastising that I 'should know'.

I do know not to burn stuff like pallets because of chemicals and possible soaked in paint, oil, etc.


Cathy R. --- Yes! The soft wood produces a lot of smoke -- and makes the dangerous buildup in the chimney. People with fireplaces know that --- or find out fast enough!
