If your oven is new it will still be purging itself of water for quite a few firings. A wet oven has a tendency to smoke. I try to place some wood in the entry to heat and dry it before putting it on the fire. This seems to work pretty well.

I have some wood that has 'gone off' - it's thouroughly dry and rather light and does not burn - it only smokes - all that work to cut it up for nothing....

It burnt ok after 6 mos of seasoning - but I think after 18 mos it has given up all of it's combustibles... I think some folks call it punked?

You may have some similar wood.

Good luck,

Chris
