- Light Quickly & Easily
- Low Smoke Output
- Good Heat
When it comes to fuel for the fire pit, birch logs are the most popular product. These logs have been kiln dried, leaving them with a moisture content of less than 15%.
The lower the moisture content, the lower the smoke output. And since a fire pit doesn't have a flue to direct the flow of smoke, a low moisture content is important!
Alongside having a low moisture content, birch logs light quickly and easily, and they give off good heat quickly.
Why does this product make a good fire pit fuel?
Birch logs are apart of the hard wood family, however, they are softer than the likes of ash and oak logs. This means that they light very easily, give off a nice flame, and get hotter quicker.
With a moisture content of 15% or lower, these kiln dried logs do not produce much smoke, which is ideal when you're relaxing in the garden!
How do I start a fire on my fire pit?
To start the fire, you will need firelighters and kindling. Place a handful of kindling into the base of the fire pit, add a firelighter, and then stack more pieces of kindling around the firelighter. When ready, use a long match of lighter to ignite the firelighter.
Once the kindling is burning away, you can start to add a couple of logs of birch. It is important to remember that any type of fuel will produce smoke when it is first lit. However, when burning properly, the smoke will reduce.
Add a more logs as necessary or when the fire starts to slow down. Do not leave the fire pit unattended, and if you need to put the fire out quickly, simply pour water over the fire pit.
Can I use anything else with this product?
As mentioned above, you will need firelighters and kindling to start the fire. If you want to make the birch logs last longer in the fire pit, you could add one of our charcoal products. This will give you a nice combination of nice flames to look at, and less refueling as charcoal products burn for longer than logs.
