  • n. an unprocessed mix of coarse chips of bark and wood fiber. Pieces run between a coarse grade of less than 5" to a fine grade of less than 2".


Possibly from a nickname of the grinding machine used to create it, a "hammer hog." The word for chopped (hacked) in Norwegian is hogge (hogde past tense); chopped wood has been hogde. Hogde fuel likely morphed into hogged fuel. (Wiktionary)
