cutting moderately -sized logs on the band saw

>What's the best way to cut -- say an eight inch diameter -- log on a band saw. I'm talking about cutting it to length. Obviously, the blade wants to grab and rotate the log. I'm not happy with the sled idea because they never seem to fit on the table with enough room. I suppose I should just go outside and use the chain saw. Any other thoughts? I'm posting because I keep ruining blades!
