I have a stick burner. I am constantly on the lookout for free wood, like on Craigslist. I got a whole pear tree for free(I had to cut it down), last fall. I also got some white oak for free. I had a couple apple trees that I cut down after maintenance proved too much for my schedule.
Am I tough? Am I strong? Am I hard-core? Absolutely.
Did I whimper with pathetic delight when I sank my teeth into my first brisket? You betcha.
