    Does anyone know what this wonderful wood is? I put a single piece of this stuff on my kindling and the BTU output was incredible. Very long burning too. I'd do my entire wood pile with this stuff if I knew what it was.

    I love these discussions! It's like the "hillbilly" version of a wine club.
