Best Winter Firewood

If you are looking for the best winter firewood there are various options. This can be a opinionated question because certain firewoods are used for specific applications. In certain regions of the United States, they have found the best firewood for their area. One of the biggest reason is they have species of trees grow very close and are able to be cut in a sustainable firewood fashion.

Here in the Midwest United States, we have a plethora of Oak trees which is a hot  long burning nut firewood. Does this mean it is the best winter firewood nationwide? No, not exactly. But, it does mean that it is the go-to firewood here in the heartland. Oak firweood can also be used as a good base wood in your BBQ smoker because it will keep coals hot if you are looking for a long smoke while you are cooking.
If you are living in the Colorado area then the best winter fireplace firewood is going to be Ponderosa Pine because it is such a prolific grower in the Rocky Mountains. Does it burn long? Not necessarily. Oak firewood beats it when it comes to heat and length of burn but the problem is all the freight costs to get enough Oak firewood to support all the home fireplaces in Colorado.  The truth is that the best winter fireplace firewood is the trees that grow very close to the customer. This drastically cuts down frieght and it really makes it simpler for everyone involved.
One of the nation's favorite winter fireplace firewood is our Santa Fe Pinion firewood. There is a reason for this. With other types of firewood that you have left over after winter it sits all summer long of no use til the following winter. This is not the case with Pinion wood. Pinion firewood for sale is used 365 days a year. It is used for your winter heating and also is used in your spring time chiminea and outdoor fireplace or fire pit.  When pinion wood is used in the summer it repels bugs, mosquitoes and insects. We all love the smell of this New Mexico mountain firewood but the insect kingdom hates the smell. Isn't this wonderful?!

Don't discount some other types of firewood that work wonderfully in the winter fireplace. These are your fruit and nut firewoods.  Pecan wood is nice because some smoke does end up getting into your home and it might as well be a nice smell. Apricot wood, Apple wood, walnut wood and hickory wood are other good choices. If you have firewood left over from your winter supply, these are the prime smoking woods that can go straight into your smoker or be used on your grill. One of my personal favorites is using Hickory wood in the fireplace because it has a pretty high BTU heating content. The only thing to make sure of is you have seasoned Hickory wood because green hickory may not be able to light easily. Green hickory is a go-to firewood for smokers but it doesn't have the aging for you as a fireplace firewood.
Another option we have for environmentally friendly firewood is our Eco Bricks.  Click here to see our bricks.
