I bought a 5 CF bag of ERC bedding. I am curious to know approximately how much charcoal I will get from this 5CF bag ie how many pounds or volume Thanks
How much loss when cooking wood for charcoal

Well willow sticks as cut from the tree usually yield about 10% of their weight as charcoal, Willow sticks as dried for fire kindling usually yield about 25% of their weight as charcoal.

10-12% yield is what I usually get from ERC shavings. I get around 18% from sumac.
is this weight or volume
I read some where to let shavings cook down then open and add more shavings. This doesn't sound correct to me. Any thoughts or help on cooking procedure.
Thanks to you guys for your answers/help
