Ah, love the heat, hate the smell of locust burning.
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.
Always love splitting and burning Black Locust, cant say I ever smelled it burned though.
Name change? Black Jack-it?
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.
. I like it.
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.....
Thanks Hocus, I mean Scotty...lol... Going back for more tonight if the rain holds off
What about the smell....smells like money...
Money in the bank! lol
Truck always rides smother after loaded with some primo wood .
Bark might come off easy if it was just cut.
Ah Locust....Smells like warm spirit.
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?
Oh Ya bring It home,split it,stack it, burn it
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.
