I understand that dry wood is not seasoned wood either though I do not know the specifics. That and if you overdry the wood it burns too fast, too hot.
Im sure I could dry all my firewood in a kiln but is the energy cost greater then the end product value? Smoking wood or egg fuel might be even a smaller scale.
And cost/benefit analysis is rarely involved in my BBQ projects, just ask my wife.
One sawyer where I took a log to be sawed had a solar kiln, so solar drying firewood may be a way to use one form of "green" energy to enhance another form of green energy ?
