Sugarmaker Tip: Checking moisture level of firewood with Vincent Bilodeau

July 11, 2019

Today we are visiting with our friend Vincent Bilodeau of L.S. Bilodeau, the big equipment maker in Quebec which has opened a dealership in Brunswick, Maine and plans to open many more in the U.S. Bilodeau is demonstrating a "moisture meter" that is available on for just $20 that tells the sugarmaker if his/her firewood is at the desired 20 percent or less moisture level. This helps ensure better, more efficient boiling and less creosoting underneath the pans, Bilodeau says.
