    ...if at a wine tasting you say that the Cabernet is oakey with just a hint of creosote".

    You are a real wood burner if at the wine tasting you ask "Are the barrels really oak and what do they do with them after they are emptied? "

    You know you are a real wood burner if you tell your party guests to save the martini toothpicks because you glue them together to make firestarters.

    Or, if you have 3 woodstoves in the house. Better yet, if you can see all the stoves from any spot in the house. Maybe I have a problem ;lol

    When you are outside and smell smoke, you begin to sniff the air like a bloodhound to find out who's else burning.

    You know you're a woodburner if you find yourself asking strangers how they heat their houses, just in hopes that they'll return the question so you can talk about your stove.
