Default Re: Buying wood

Robert,
Thanks again for the tip. Never heard back from you on Sat. Offer still stands. Maybe a long ways, but it is good wood, it is free, and we could shoot-the-shit while you are here. We have a big stack of walnut chunks (won't stack) that we are trying to get rid of. That is what I will be fueling my oven with for some time.

RC,

Sorry, missed that post from you. Hard to say with cleaning up the entryway; depends on what you're burning and how cured your oven actually is. However, with a larger fire, you will get some flame out the doorway, which will clean things up a bit. Here, crews clearing trees do exactly the same thing: chip the limbs and keep the trunks. I've been pretty lucky with Hydro (read electric company) crews clearing roadside trees of limbs near wires and poles. Ask nicely and see if they'll leave a pile of limbs for you to grab. Might work.

Jim

And the little chunks? Greatly useful for putting the fire once it's pushed to the side to get that flame up the dome.

Reminds me of the old Hermit up on Brockway Mountain in the middle of Lake Superior. He would cut down poplar trees and have the tree going out his front door!

I keep two piles of wood, one for heat (almost anything that will burn) and one for cooking (those that provide heat and/or flavor).
