I found some old cedar tongue and groove waste pieces in the attic that have been fabulous smelling kindling for the cooker.I have a lot of cedar as well so when I'm loading the stoves I always have a sixty gallon tote in the garage full of cedar kindling to help if I don't have a good coal bed. But I agree Woody Stover having a lot of locust on hand is not a bad problem to have.
Why would you bother splitting any wood and burn it in the fire pit? Work unnecessary in my books.This was some pine mother nature brought down with some high winds, after I burned that pine, I pulled back the cover and found more rounds so I split that and it's burning in the fireplace.
If this pine log was out on the backhill, it would've stayed there. Some people would make a big pile of rounds with brush and pour something on it and torch it, I choose to burn it in the fireplace after I split it.Why would you bother splitting any wood and burn it in the fire pit?
