Is seasoned firewood related to seasoned BBQ/Smoking wood?
Is seasoned firewood related to seasoned BBQ/Smoking wood? If so, when does the wood loose its BBQ/Smoking values? I usually burn the pecan, mesquite and hickory in the fireplace before it loose all its weight in 3-5 years (after seasoning 1yr). Over the years I feel I have lost the best values in some firewood and BBQ wood (due to keeping it too long in the open TX sun and rain vs a shelter). I have refused to burn less than 1/4th cord of wood I personally cut since mid 1970s. I have refused cords of wood from friends due to no weight/value.
Basically no wood is burned now in this area vs the 1970-80s as firewood or BBQ Etc. This area's development started about 1960 and the land to expand ended in the mid 1990. Most of us over-planted oak and pecan trees that provides lots of wood now. I have 3 Oaks, 1 Pecan and a Bald Cyprus on this small plot. I hope this was the right channel and my 1st time to ask this question. LOL. loger
