Rated 5 out of 5Â by Spring Great- even for first timers!
We installed these gas logs on our own, after never having owned a gas log set. The set is beautiful and we couldn't be happier. Make sure to check other resources to determine how large your logs should be, in relation to your fire box. We would have ordered a smaller size, but research led us to this size and it fits perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Wasserball Logs Too Small
I bought the Burnt River Oak because of the good reviews, and I thought i was going to enjoy them. Unfortunately, I returned it to my local Home Depot store because the 9 piece log assembly looked too small. I was expected at least one log to measure 22-24" long, but that is not the case. At HD, I saw on display and bought the Emberglow 24" Lanier Oak Vented instead. I felt that it was more realistic looking because there were 2 logs that were 22-24". This set was worth the extra $20 I had to pay.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Skipper Great looks for the price
The logs were shipped the same week. The logs were very secure in lots of paper. I've read here about the difficulties of bending the aluminum tube that supplies the gas- it works best (as the instructions say) to pack it with sand and bend gently. Don't use a flex line as they are not as safe and will whistle. The instructions weren't clear on the placement of the logs- as long as you have enough space between the logs for the flames, you should be good. Ours puts out a good amount of heat that warms the large room with a nice flame and realistic look (it's fooled a number of visitors). Overall, a great value set with quality parts.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Fatherof6 Really poor quality.
I installed this as a replacement for a gas log that was 12 years old. Here is what you need to know about the Burnt River Oak 24 In vended dual burner gas log.
The Burner is as stated and it works good.
The logs are very small and very poor quality. I put them in as directed in the instructions and they looked good but they didn't fill up the fire grate like they should. After a couple of days, I decided to re-arrange them and see if I could get a look that I liked better. The fire had been on only twice for an hour each time. The logs fell apart as I tried to pick them up and move them. The fire had made them so fragile that they just fell apart. My other logs lasted for years before falling apart like this.
I would strongly suggest that nobody buy a gas log from this manufacturer.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jimh70458 Nice Log Set - Poor Instructions
This is a really nice looking log set, however, the instructions are very poor. You can't tell from the instructions or the pictures which log is which or how to stack them corrrectly. No itemized list of parts. No customized instructions, but a very general and poorly written set. Also, I would highly recommend that you go out and buy a flexible gas line. The aluminum tube provided is very difficult to work with. A flexible gas line can be purchased for around $10 that comes with a pressure valve to stop/restrict the flow of gas should the pressure be beyond what is safe. In some places the code requires the use one of these devices when installing a gas log set.
