Where to Find Firewood in the Summer

While most people think of time by the fire as a winter activity, the summer bonfire is also a great way to make memories!

Think about it – remember the bonfires at summer camp? Or how does drying off by the fire on a cool summer night sound after a day in the pool? And what about making s’mores? Those are a year-round treat!

The only problem is, it becomes much harder to source good firewood during the summer. Grocery stores stop carrying it, local suppliers run out of dry wood, and sometimes you don’t want an entire truck load of wood anyway.

Fortunately, we have the solution! Here at Cutting Edge Firewood, we carry stock of firewood year-round and can ship or deliver wood directly to your home. It’s never been easier to source quality firewood, so there is no excuse for not enjoying an outdoor fire with friends or family this summer!

You can order firewood now, or read on to learn more about what makes Cutting Edge Firewood the best firewood available. Period.

Why you should enjoy a fire during the summer

Enjoying a good fire should not be restricted to nights when the temperature drops below freezing. In fact, you might be surprised by how much you enjoy a bonfire at night when the temperature is in the 70s or 80s.

What is the Best-Smelling firewood?

Here are a few benefits to spending time around the fire during the summer:

  • Watching a fire is like watching a sunset. It’s a beautiful thing!
  • Research has proven that watching a fire can lower your blood pressure and reduce anxiety.
  • The fire provides a great opportunity to disconnect from technology and, instead, connect with those around you.
  • S’mores taste just as good in the summer, and in fact, National S’mores day is on August 10!
  • If you spend time in the pool at night, having a fire nearby is a great way to get warm and dry off when the swimming is done.
  • It brings back memories of summer camps from when you were young.
  • It creates the perfect space for singing (or listening to) campfire songs
  • You can go beyond s’mores and cook your entire meal over the fire.

Those are just a few benefits to building a fire during the summer, you’ll discover more once you actually experience it for yourself!

Where to get the best firewood in the summer

Our mission at Cutting Edge Firewood is to provide the best firewood available. Period.

Which species of wood is best for a bonfire?

Lots of people ask us which type of wood is best for an outdoor bonfire.

First, you want to make sure you’re using some quality kiln dried firewood. This will help ensure everyone has a great experience because it will be easier to light, smoke less, and have a better aroma. Seasoned firewood brings a host of problems and we recommend avoiding it.

Second, you want to burn hardwoods instead of softwoods like pine. Softwoods burn very quickly and create more dark smoke that can make you feel like you’re choking.

We offer three primary hardwoods: oak, hickory, and cherry. Each is great for bonfires and has it’s own unique properties.

Variety of Wood Species

Cherry, for instance, has a sweet aroma and creates the least heat. If it’s a warm summer night, that cooler fire might be perfect!

Hickory, on the other hand, creates a classic wood fire aroma, lasts the longest, and creates the most heat. If you want to experience the best burning wood available, the hickory is your best choice.

Oak is a great all-arounder. It burns hotter than cherry but cooler than hickory. It has a subtle aroma and can burn for a long time. It’s a popular choice for outdoor fire pits everywhere!

What’s in the Box of Firewood?

While you may want to enjoy a fire this weekend, you may not need to fill an entire rack. If you’re after a smaller amount of firewood, but still want a great experience, then our boxes are a great choice.

The Cutting Edge box of firewood includes everything you need for 2-4 amazing fireside experiences. In every box, you will find:

  • Our 16″ standard cut firewood

  • Ultimate 16″ Bulk Firewood Package

    $1,699.00

    Looking for the best firewood available? Our Ultimate 16″ Bulk Firewood Package includes everything you need for a great season of memorable fires. This package includes 5 racks of firewood, and you get to choose which ones!

    Why is our firewood the best? It undergoes a rigorous drying process, spending 48 hours in a kiln at 250 degrees. This is 12 times longer than FDA requirements, and guarantees that our wood is extremely dry, has no bugs, mold, or fungus, is easier to light, and burns brightly with less smoke. You’ll see the difference from the first match.

    The Ultimate package includes more than just 5 racks of wood, however. Each package also includes…

Go big with our 24″ and 30″ Firewood Cuts

If you have a large fire pit and want to enjoy a truly spectacular fire, then checkout our extended length firewood. We have a variety of wood species that are 24″ long and 30″ long and they are great for summer time bonfires.

We offer the 24″ in cherry, hickory, oak, and in our unique Uncut Rounds. Uncut rounds are exactly what they sound like – large pieces of wood that have not been split. You need a very hot fire to get them lit, but they can burn for hours at a time. It’s a fun way to enjoy a long summer night and not need to keep adding firewood the whole time.

Uncut Rounds stacked on a 4x8 rack with 24" hickory

We also offer 30″ hickory firewood and 30″ oak firewood for the mega fire enthusiast. These might just be the largest commercial pieces of firewood you can find in the world, and they burn incredibly well.

All of our extended length firewood is offered as part of our complimentary delivery artisan service, or we can also ship the longer length firewood as well.

What about Cooking Wood?

If you spend enough time around the fire, then you’re going to get hungry! Humans have cooked over wood fires for thousands of years, and it’s making a comeback.

Microwaves and gas ovens may be convenient, but they cannot replace the incredible flavor that comes from cooking over wood. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for firewood for your pizza ovens, chunks for your Big Green Egg, splits for your offset smoker, or cooking logs for your open pit fire or oversized grill. We’ve got you covered.

Just like our firewood, we can ship or deliver inside boxes or racks. All of our cooking wood is extremely clean – this will ensure you only add quality wood flavor to your food. You wouldn’t want to use wood that is musty or wet – that will make your food taste musty!
