On a serious note I'll make sure I pay attention during prunning time and keep the apple wood and use that.... All the rest seem to be on this list....

I was curious when I noted that Cedar was listed as toxic. The native residents of my region used cedar for salmon cooking for thousands of years. There are also many other woods on the list that I know are quite commonly used for smoking (alder, apricot)

So I clicked back to the top level domain of "Mickaboo" and found out that is a "companion bird rescue" site. That list is meant to be wood that is toxic for birds in their cages. I don't think it's applicable to WFO's.

By the way, tell us how do you split such logs as, in my experience, there is no way exception of some sort of hidraulic press or cut it with a motorsaw
Dmendo,

As you suggest, the wood is quite dry and burns nicely, if a bit quickly. I have grilled with it two straight nights and it imparts a wonderful, sweet aroma while burning.
I used a hatchet to cut some of the smaller 'disks' into fist-sized chunks for grilling, but will need to use either my sledgehammer and wedge or chainsaw to cut the larger pieces. Either way, I am indeed fortunate to have acquired this wonderful fuel and can't wait to heat the oven with it.
