Clean and breezy smokeless logs guide

An instant light smokeless log has been lit and is starting to burn in a fireplace

They say that there’s no smoke without fire. But is this really true? Moving from the proverbial to the literal, it’s perfectly possible to have a roaring fire with no smoke at all. How on earth is this even a thing? Smokeless logs ladies and gents. As Christmas is well on the way, we’re sure many of you will be lighting some glorious fires. If you’re looking for a quicker, cleaner and easier way to get your blaze on, smokeless logs will get you there.

What are smokeless logs?

Smokeless logs are a nifty and sustainable alternative to firewood.  Essentially they are manufactured logs derived from high density wood by-products and they’re usually cylindrical in shape. These nifty and sustainable logs deliver all the gorgeousness and heat of a wood-burning fire without the hassle and of course the smoke. The majority of smokeless logs are easy to light, leaving little to no mess to clean up afterwards. Let’s break things down.

How are smokeless logs made?

Generally speaking, smokeless logs are produced from made wood waste, such as hardwood sawdust or softwood, paper, wax or straw. We use compression or extrusion to create the logs. These processes lower the internal moisture levels to sub 10%. Basically smokeless logs maintain their structural integrity due to the applied pressure and binding of the lignin in the wood. Bonus time: smokeless logs do not contain any additives, chemicals or artificial binders. Size-wise, we’re talking anywhere between 6-8 inches long and 2-3 inches in diameter.
