Lab Report on Moisture and storage of wood

 

Dr. Smoke and the crew decided to do a little lab experiment on the storage of our wood!  We all know that storage of wood in a cool (degrees) location will preserve the moisture level in the wood.   But, at what temperature?

So we have experimented with one log put in a freezer and another in a refrigerator!   The freezer’s temperature is at 30 degrees F and the refrigerator’s temperature is at 40-42 degrees F.  Therefore we found the following results:

Freezer                       Refrigerator

Start                                27.1%                         30.8%   Moisture

Week one                         18.8%                         30.3%

Week Two                         18.6%                         30.0%

Week Three                       16.9%                         29.8%

We find these results very interesting!   The Freezer log in three weeks lost almost 50 percent of its moisture!  Refrigeration loss was negligible!   We will continue to experiment with varying temperatures around the 40-degree range and we’ll keep refining our test to make sure Smokinlicious® products are the best!
