be careful if your useing old pailings they may be treated pine and the old ones were cca treated

for fiewood im lucky i work at a trussplant as a sawyer so i get all the good bits

depending on the application i use hardwood mixed with pine

i have been trying a few things lately that have suprised me a little when i have already used the oven a day or so earlier i have been using straight pine to get the oven back up to temp and it's been working fine

as for how much i get it depends if want to load the ute right up or just take a handful

Hi Bris Pizza
good to hear your around. Yes I'm still burning fences there some pretty old ones around my area...about 50 yrs old and hardwood. An old bloke up the road supplied my last lot . Cut to 300mm lenghts in bundles too I got a coupla mtres worth and some lucky bugger got the rest bet he didn't send over a hot pizza . Recon I got dibs on the remainder when its pulled down But you got to be sure that there not treated that law in QLD got to be 20 yrs old now?
Found that if I run out of good dry wood that a quick drive around the park and bits a bush in the local area will turn up some tree falls. A barrow worth in the back of the ute will give me a good burn.
Also burn the old golden cane fronds there full of oil an even the the 1/2 dried ones burst into flame in a hot oven. The neighbours love me and chuck em across the fence when I flash up the oven. Only problem is they produce heaps of ash which you have to clear before finishing things of with a bit of good hardwood

Regards Cobblerdave

Hi all
Pinecone as a wood source......
Mentioned to my wife that pine cones were a good kindling to light fires and as a result last time we went for a drive she collected a few...a few to many.
She managed to fill the ute with about 3 barrows worth. Yes the little stinkers are good to lite fires but not that many and how to stow 3 barrows worth neatly!
Finally one sun when I only needed to get enough heat to cook a roast I burnt about 2 1/2 barrows worth. Lasted about an hour which is just right for a roast which doesn't need pizza heat and cooks great in that slowly cooling oven over about 3-4 hours.
They burn real hot and spluter and spark heaps but what the heck the flames long gone by the time you cooking a roast

Regards Dave

Gum tree mix of Ghost and iron bark as far as I can see. Its regrowth so its anything up to 75 mm (3 In). I have got some older stuff from the same block which I seasoned dry in a cooling oven and it burns great. The offers good for more its just stowage room till it drys

I have a good supply of Yellow Box and that burns with some serious heat. Have split the logs into small slices to use as the "flame" component in the oven. Too much box and all food will be incinerated..
