I've read several threads where folks have stated there wood usages, but (naturally) the predominate folks responding are northern burners. I'm hoping that the title will prompt more of the folks in the deep south to respond. I'll be burning my little F3CB and I'm not going to try to burn 24/7 (this year ), I'm guesstimating I'll burn 1 to 1-1/2 cord of a mix of oaks and maybe some pecan. So...how much, how often, what kind, etc.,... Thanks! Ed Responses in a nutshell: North Florida: 1.5 to 2 cords (pecan/oak), Morso 7110.
