    Yes, the heat is great, and it is a little pungent when burned. I love the smell of it when splitting it though.

    Good looking load there. Never very fond of the smell either, but I have enjoyed its heat.

    I got 2 cords of BL about 2 years ago for $80 already split. Love it and use it only on long cold night. Took me awhile to figure out what it was - it's not native out here.

    Natural range is not very large but it was widely used as an ornamental (cool-looking leaves) and for erosion control on strip-mine land. There's a lot around here but none on our property...

    Nice score, blu!!

    you know how I feel about locust.....;)
    And I agree, when splitting it smells like olives with pimentos....I love olives with pimentos....
    I was thinking about changing my handle from Hearth.com Members to Hocus Locust....but I'm an overkiller from WAAAY back....so I'll have to keep my handle.....

    We are loaded with Black Locust in Central NJ. Don't see that on the map, but it is all over. Burning BL keeps the house nice and warm. Good thing because if you were enticed to go outside while burning it, you would be looking for the dumpster that is on fire.

    When bucking and splitting, the smell seems to be coming from under the bark. A lot of my BL stash has no bark so maybe won't stink as bad when burning?

    Smells like a garbage fire the entire time it is the stove. Great wood-stove firewood, but wouldn't make a good firepit or fireplace additive.
