Right then, the 30kgs of American White Oak "FINE" sawdust I ordered arrived today.
I sliced open the <<<Made For The Space Shuttle>>> strength plastic sacks it came in and scooped some up in my hand.....they weren't wrong with the description, this stuff really is like dust.
Anyway, it's been snowing, sleeting and raining today, yesterday, day before, repeat....so the air is pretty humid....I wasn't holding out much hope for a good smoulder when I loaded up the sieve, granted it took a little longer to light but, bl**dy h*ll!!!! This stuff (once alight) goes and goes and goes!!!
I got about 4.5hrs (17:30-22:ish) out of this lot (in the drizzle, humidity etc)...and the smoke produced....WOW!!!!
