    Anyone have experience cooking with this stuff? It's pretty hard to find good info on! I hear it burns long and hot, that it can be cooked with but can't really find BTUs or even someone describing the flavor/what it's similar to.

    It looks and seems like apple in alot of ways to me but I really won't know until it's dry and I burn it. Probably gonna take a while going by how heavy it was, even with thin splits IMG_20210815_142901.jpg

    Not sure as I've never noticed a difference cooking over wood, but have always been told if you are going to use wood for smoking to remove the bark. I haven't done a lot of smoking with wood I've collected myself so cant say for sure, but my uncultured mouth never minded a steak cooked over a wood fire with bark on.
