Anyone burn locust? I am a big fan of cutting "standing dead locust trees" and using them for firewood. In fact, about 70% of the wood I burned last year was locust. Well, I was talking to my neighbor the other day and he told me that locust was bad to burn because it was too "oily". He said it would cause my chimney to build up excessive amounts of creosote. Instead of defending the wood that has kept me warm on many a cold night, I let it blow by and didn't comment back. So, is he off his rocker or do I need to go across the street with my tail between my legs and tell him he's right?
