Find the largest pieces that have been most protected, split again, ignite using charcoal, and use the heat to dry the next pieces to be used on top of the firebox.
Or get pizza and relax.

My guess would be only the outer few MM's of wood is wet. I saw a video awhile back where someone submerged a log for quite a long time then cut it in half and it was mostly still dry. Once you get the firebox hot you can use it to dry the next few logs.

I wouldn't think twice about using it. Not going to be enough moisture to affect anything. Just start with some charcoal and some of your wet wood. Put some splits on the firebox. By the time you need them, they will be dry. Then just keep replacing the splits on top of your firebox as you use them.

It takes months to dry wood, a little rain can't reverse that. It's always still dry in the middle. Plus, there's always charcoal starter fluid.

I'm guessing you've never been a scout.

If you're not married, throw five or six splits in your home oven overnight at 150 to 200 degrees!

If you are married, depends on your wife!

If wood absorbed water the Nino, Pinto and Santa Margarita would of never floated long enough for Chris to discover Arizona

Just start with a good bed of coals and you will be fine

the wood will not soak up water and is just on the outside and just knock off maybe the bark . start off with some charcoal to ignite the splits and then just warm them up on top of your firebox .

I tried to use this argument before and was told "They used sap to seal the wood".

I was not around then, but sounds possible.

Just another argument to; 1. Don’t soak chunks or chips. It does no good.
2. Always pre heat wood splits. It increases ignition.

Everyone above have voted for these two statements. Go ahead and cook. You will be fine.

Thanks all . I just might give the wet wood a shot. I have to fire up the Shirley it has been resting way too long, with my over nights going into the WSM.
I will post back with the outcome

Thanks Again

Default water pan

Hi All I'm thinking of putting a water pan in my Shirley. Where would be the best place for it? My ribs are going on the top rack.
Thanks DanB
