I try for fruits and nuts when considering woods, bugs don't really get me excited. :grillin:

Bugs... Protein!


I suffer from me phobia... Fear of becoming so awesome that the human race can't handle it and everyone dies.

I dont use it in my cookers, some people do and they are still around. Burns hot, but anything that you can bury in the ground and it doesn't rot. well ??? ;)

I'm with Blazer on this one.
Did I just say that? Sheeesh! :D

I don't think it's flavor would be all that appealing but the heat output is prolly okay to use - if it isn't the only wood you're burning…. sometimes a guy just happens into a wood that needs to be tried. Trying and adding to our wood chart on here is the whole idea - we all get smarter …. even about bugs… :)



…. I don't mind bugs … IF I see them FIRST … :bigfoot:


And on the eighth day God created barbecue …. because he DOES love us and he wants us to be happy. :D
