Default How do you store your wood?

Cough cough.......Is it better to keep your wood chunks in a air tight container or something that has some air circulation?

I store my chunks in a 30gal drum with a lid. Not airtight but mostly waterproof.

I got an old chlorine bucket with a screw on lid from the pool guy and drilled a few holes around the rim...it's rain proof but still breathes. BTW, I cleaned the chlorine out very good...

I store seasoned dried wood in a 55 gallon drum with a clamp banded lid. I was going to use the drum for a second UDS, but changed my mind. The trouble and time spent removing the phenolic lining wasn't worth it to me. I have also been known to use one of these for the smaller chunks:


Good luck,

Breath-ability is key. For the Lang it is a wood pile on skids and under a loose fitting tarp. For the charcoal cookers, the chunks live in milk crates on a shelf. Out of the weather of course.

OK, I'm spoiled but I buy kiln dried hickory from a local suplier and store it on a pallet in my pole barn along with my round roles of cow hay. Great wood, plenty of circulation, no rain.

I store mine on my back porch underneath the lean-to roof. Humidity has never been a problem with the wood and I live in Alabama.

Keep a couple cords under the overhang on the back of the shop. Nice and dry and out of the weather.
