    Got a line on some pine slabs for free this weekend. I was told they are one year old. They should split up nice and make for ALOT of kindling if nothing else next year

    Good score suprz. Glad to hear you got some free BTUs. Make sure it is at least a year old though before you start burning. I use pine slabwood mixed in with my hardwood. I bought some from an Amish fellow last year around this time. You want to make sure it is good and dry. If you split it up too small it will burn away super fast. I leave it in pretty good size chunks when I put it in the boiler.

    They will make kindling and you can also burn it along with the other wood. Just don't fill the stove with the pine and all will be well.
