What burns hotter? Coal or Wood?
Coal innit. I’d go with kindling to get normal coal going then add some smokeless coal once the normal coal is going as it burns hotter for longer (but is harder to get going and contains all sorts of nasties).
A log or two would make it smell nice though 🙂
edit: can the chiminea cope with the heat if fully loaded with smokeless? Either way I think a combo of smokeless and logs.Posted 5 years agoigrfMember
Our local dobbies (tesco garden centre) sells these little round logs, billed as green and burn hotter, they light relatively easy and are a lot cleaner to carry about than coal. They burn a lot hotter than most logs you get, and wood from different tyoes of tree all burn to varying degrees, I forget which is best Ash as I recall works well as does oak which burns slower and some conifers burn well with a pleasant smell, but if I were travelling which it sounds like you are, I’d take a £4.99 bag of these dobbie wood fuel composite things for wood burring stoves..
Coal does still burn hottest but takes a bit to get going.
Anthracite burns hotter still.Posted 5 years ago
