For comparison purposes
Back to the paper logs - these two paper logs were the first two I ever made. I used a Saturday issue of the Irish Independent in tabloid form, including the Weekender magazine, the Aldi supplement and another section in broadsheet form. As you can see, size-wise, they are roughly the size of a briquette and have shrunk by approximately a third. They are no more a fire hazard as the briquette is as they are both hard. They are easy to store as they stack on top of each other.
I burned ones that I made after these but they were not fully dry. The ones I burned lasted for near 1.5 hours so I would expect these to only last for one hour. I also don't make them as big as these now as these took approximately 15 weeks to dry completely.
