Someone suggest differently, but we are having tremendous success with this mix.
- Get the fire rocking with well aged birch.
- Toss in a “yule log” of red oak.
- Fire hungry for more wood? Pull the coals forward and alternate between birch and red oak.
Like the perfect cocktail, blending a wood fired sauna stove with mostly birch and a smattering of red oak promotes a super hot fire in the stove, and gives us a super hot long burn time.
75% birch, 25% oak. We have died and gone to sauna heaven.
