Gas starter pipe with ceramic logs

Posted by shilok (My Page) on

My house has masonry fireplace (was burning wood long time ago) that has gas starter pipe.
Shut off valve is on a side of fireplace and its all black pipe inside of fireplace.
Now, since I dont have any wood but I do have a set of ceramic logs from vented gas logs
I was wondering if I can put those on top of the wood burning grate (they fit very nicely)
And run fireplace like that. I understand that esthetic would not be the same as in whole set of gas logs
but I care more about safety then look.
And then in case when I want to burn wood, just to take ceramic logs off grate and load wood logs on.
Would that work and are there any safety concerns on this setup?
I run fireplace no more than few times a year.
Thanks for all comments and ideas.
