We don't use pine for anything. We have about 30 truck loads of oak, cherry, and hickory for heating the house, the shop, camping, and smoker fuel.
Ill add some background info, I have been camping my whole life, and I have cooked almost every way possible over a campfire. I don't like to buy things that I don't really need so I thought I would try to make a smoker out of some things I already have that could easily be put into my chuck box.
