How to Use a Log Moisture Meter? Here’s how to use a wood moisture meter for firewood: Take off the protective cover from your moisture meter to bare the two electrical pins. Push the meter’s electrical pins firmly into the log. Press the measure button and wait for the measurement readings to appear. If the reading is below 20%, then your firewood is safe to use. If it’s over 20%, then it cannot be burned and needs to be seasoned longer.
