Green Wood

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by smokin stang, Jan 2, 2011.

  1. Anyone see a problem using green wood as long as you burn it down to red coals in a seperate box than your pit and then add it to your pit adding a piece of seasoned wood every now and then? Any problems with creosote or taste doing it this way?

    I don't see any problem as long as the wood is burned down to red coals. Having never used green wood, I think what you'll have to do is either use charcoal, or dry wood to at least start the fire and get it going.
