    That is my favorite place to burn it. I split off all the bark for the firewood pile, the rest goes in the smoker wood pile.

    A guy who ran a bbq food truck that only uses oak tried to tell me that unseasoned cherry gave the bitter taste. He smokes with whole logs though so that makes sense now that you say that. I have used it unseasoned and think I prefer that flavor over seasoned. I always split off the bark no matter which variety of smoker wood it is. Never got a bitter taste that way.

    What is this stuff? Holy smokes I cant split it for nothing. I've tried every axe I have and even tried the sledge and wedge. All they do is sink in and get stuck. This tree has been standing dead for a while so no bark pics. 20200108_164513.jpg

    Im hoping someone can tell me what this is.
    My best guess I can come up with is Buckthorn or hawthorn.

    Top pic is of an older plant. Other pics are of a smaller, younger appearing one.
    Thorns on larger plant are almost 2".

    Hey everyone! This is my first open forum contribution. I’ve been drooling over the chainsaw classifieds for the last few weeks. Anyway above are a few pictures of some wood that I cannot identify for sure. I think it is a type of Hickory. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Good job! I'd say bitternut, could be a young shagbark but I doubt it. Cmon, I'm just a logger and know this stuff. I guess it helps having some horticulture background, and a teacher that me by bark buds and structure. Anyone know why that's the only fool proof way to ID a tree?

    Thanks for the replies fellas. Hickory it is! I've heard bitternut or pignut. In any case it will burn.

    I didn’t think this was ash ? Most of our ash waS destroyed couple years ago. It’s yellow chips when cutting it.
