You can get log home type screws up to 10” long, called “Timber Tech” IIRC from McFeely’s. A 5/16” nut driver in an impact driver and away ya go, some woods don’t require a pilot hole even. To be safe, I’d probably run a long 3/16” bell hanger type bit at least part way thru for a guide pilot.

The screws are either blk. epoxy coated or SS….SS is REALLY pricey tho’.
