Default Re: Wood chips for smoking and BBQ

Sorry Jim, it's too fine for smoking in the BBQ, maybe try some your pipe!

They do make some sawdust woodstoves I believe. It's fed into the woodstove....maybe that's a pellet stove though.

My Mom used to tell the story about trying to feed sawdust to the horse
...just when they got it to eat the sawdust the damn thing died!

and watch that chainsaw, I've got 26 stitches, but that's another story.

XJ,

I was afraid you'd say that. Guess I'll just keep composting the stuff. I believe that in the interior of British Columbia (logging country) there are sawdust home heating systems, but I'm not sure how they work. Maybe a member from out that way could comment.

Jim

Hi CJ..............sawdust burners have been used for a long time in the furniture industry in the UK to deal with waste. I assume that the same is true in Canada and the US. The offcuts are fed through a Hogger system to grind them and then stored in silos. There are also workshop sized stoves that may suit you. They are generally hopper fed. I'll see if I can scare up a link for you.

Just a word about composting dust. There are certain woods, like mahogony that are toxic in compost and could do more damage to plants than good......

Hi CJ.................here's a link to a UK supplier. I'm sure you would be able to find someone in Canada. You've got a lot of forests there.
