    I was looking through some old pictures and video I made last year and this video of a fire start-up from coals caught my eye so I uploaded it to youtube.
    I was burning some Pine that was cut and split 3 moths earlier than the video was shot. If you look carefully at the center split you can see the distinct tale tell signs of blue staining that pine beetle kill Pine has

    Worth a try Steve, but keep in mind the stuff I'm cutting has been standing dead for a few years, most of it has a reading of 20% or less moisture when I cut it.

    Pine is a fine fuel for startup and more.
    Many wood burners and long time residents
    in North America and Europe have to
    use it exclusively because hardwood is
    simply not available.

    Those of us that have hardwood sources
    are very lucky indeed to have a choice.

    I always keep a seperate stack or two of Eastern
    White pine for startup and short burns.
