    Someone in my parent's neighborhood just felled this tree, & they said I can have it if I want it. I'm thinking it's some oak variety. If you know what it is, is it any good to cook with once seasoned?

    Looks like Pin Oak near as I can tell. Not that high on the heat index and takes a long while to season as it holds a lot of water. It'll be good for heat, but won't add much flavor, if any.It burns nice and clean, and as I said, will make decent heat, just plan on adding something else to it for flavor.
