    Had a very nice overnite burn '9hrs' and will be splitting some more fillers today..

    I have a large amount of Locust that is nice and dry but wondering if it is kind of a waste to use as fillers?

    What does everyone else use?

    I love the pics. The one of the woods looks like my backyard, although I've got a mix of pine too.

    Nothing like free energy!

    That looks like a load of prime wood Loon! I bet you get a good 10 hrs. from that load.. The trick is to get the wood charred and get the air all the way down while maintaining a top down secondary burn.. :ZZZ

    Yes, unsplit rounds can hold moisture inside for quite a while. Next year they should burn better.

    That's really cool, thanks for posting. I like how he can use the splitter as a grabber in addition to splitting. It makes splitting look like child's play.

    Yep, locust has stinky smoke, but a beautiful blue flame once it gets going. It puts out a lot of heat too. That wood is dense!
