16-Inch Kiln-Dried Sugar Maple Firewood for Fire Pits, Wood Grills and More
How sweet it is to burn our full-sized sugar maple wood in a fire pit, wood-fired grill or fireplace! Wherever you burn it, a joyful feeling is bound to come over you as it tickles your nostrils with a hint of maple-syrupy goodness. And if you’re cooking with it, you’re in for a double-treat since it will make your cooking taste extra sweet!
What makes this wood so delightful? A couple of things. First, the reason it’s called sugar maple is it contains 2% more sugar than regular maple wood. This is what gives the smoke its maple syrup flavor we love so much. The wood also has the high heat content you’d expect from a hardwood like maple, making it great for high heat burns.
We help those exceptional qualities shine all the brighter by kiln-drying the wood. Every piece of sugar maple spends 48 hours in a massive kiln to get its moisture content down to below 20%. This is the ideal level for the wood to perform at the top of its game without all that extra moisture to slow it down.
To further sweeten the deal, we box up our sugar maple logs in a resealable carrying case and deliver them anywhere in the U.S. with free two-day shipping. Plus, we care for our forests by planting one sugar maple tree for every box we sell. We’re just a bunch of sweethearts, we know!
