    Biomass Cubes Got Wet

    Hey y’all, so our predicted rain happened sooner rather than later and my bag of cubes got a little bath. As you can see, they are air drying on a sheet pan with a rack. Will they still be good to go?

    I am not sure. I like to use a torch for my stuff. However, If you put them in the oven at like 200 F or warm, it will help to dry them out. Just keep an eye on it. 200 F is way below combustion point, so it should be fine to help you dry them out. Or keep them on the rack and lay them out in that wonderful California sun!

      I saw on my weather app that y’all get your very own atmospheric river next week. You might want to dust off your rain boots.

      It's when you multiply the width, height, and depth of someone's ass.

      Panhead John I’m not sure but it’s going to smell bad when you burn it.

    I believe they are just vegetable wax and wood product. The water shouldn't hurt the vegetable wax (which may protect the wood from absorbing water) and, as long as the heat in the oven is not too high to melt the wax, they should stay intact. As to the definition and measurements above, I will stay out of that one.

      If they are moisture resistant, it would probably say so on the packaging. I've seen that on some of the fire starters I use.

        I use those all the time. Spread em on some paper towels n let them air dry. The oven might screw up the wax/sawdust composition. They should be fine.

          Setting them on fire should dry them out.


          I'll show myself out now...

            I know - what's the deal with water falling from the sky, right?
            I have some similar firestarters that got wet and were fine. 1 of 2 things will happen - either they have some sort of soluble matter in them that will cause them to fall apart when they dry, or they will be fine. You won't know until they dry.

              My wax-based starters have gotten wet and burned just fine. I hope yours will too. Light 'em with a torch and see how it goes. Let us know.
