I am in search of wood storage info. I have a rack in my garage that I have been keeping splits and logs on for at least a year. Hasn't seemed to be a problem except for making a mess. I currently have Pecan, Cherry and Oak in my garage. I am switching to new cookers and I have cut all my splits and logs into small chunks and placed them in a plastic tub. Is this a sufficient method of storing the wood chunks in my garage? using the plastic tubs? Can I put the lids on them or no? Also, I noticed my Pecan wood got somewhat terrorized by possibly some bugs that board holes in the wood. Nothing on the cherry or oak though. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

Your Pecan is ruined, and a danger to everything around it, wrap it up and send it to me for proper disposal! Very Happy




Seriously Rubbermaid type tubs should be just fine, as long as the wood is dry don't worry about holes. if it is a little damp as long as its in the garage just leave the lid cracked.

Where are you located?

Milk crates would be good as well, they allow air to flow through.

I store my chunks in 5 gallon buckets, with 1" holes drilled in the top and lid, in the basement (and some in the tool shed - I've got a lot of chunks at the moment Laughing ). I wouldn't store them in an airtight container. Even 'dry' wood has some moisture and you're at risk of nastiness growth.

definitly don't want to seal it tight but plastic containers with a few holes for ventalation should be fine
