Woodchip cookers?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any Rayburn/Aga style cookers that can be fuelled by woodchip (from a store, preferably not every couple of hours)? I've seen a few that use pellets but nothing with chip which we have a supply of already.

Any advice is welcome, we are looking for one that will heat water and cook like a traditional Rayburn.

If you wanted to own your own Patisserie I know of some excellent thermal oil cookers which run on woodchip and provide all your hot water and central heating but the scale is a bit big.

 

Heuft - Biomass-Boiler

 

To get to domestic scale I have only seen wood pellet or logs. I use an Esse which I will be changing shortly for an Austrian Lohberger.

I have tried my rayburn on all the bark and debris that collects at the bottom of the logstore, it goes really well if a little faster than logs. I think that if you could bag your chip into small bags and then put the whole bag on, it could be a convenient way to run on chip. You need to dry your chip though.

Thanks for the replies, we've just started to sell woodchip for biomass boilers so we have dry chip. We have a boiler which we're tempted to get our hot water from but it's quite far from the house and that boiler doesn't constantly run so we were looking at a the woodchip equivalent of our oil fuelled Rayburn. If it exists which seems unlikely.

You could turn you woodchip into torrefied wood then grind down to a talcum powder mix with water to form a charcoal slurry which you could use directly in your oil fuelled Rayburn.

 

Unfortunately the kit to do it is very expensive and you would then become a direct competitor
