Now here's a new one

Co worker said his neighbor takes his fire wood and soaks it in his used
peanut oil for about 10 minutes.

Wow, great way to recycle that oil if it really works...I can't see any reason why not....thoughts?

Green wood is a bad idea using in or pit or to heat your home, creosote is a real problem on food or in your chimney. Chimney fires are a bitch.

Also, what would the smell of burning oil do to the taste of the food? What the hell kind of lunatic neighborhood are you living in Cap'n..........if that is your real name?

Sorry, Cappy, but like Jim said, it's not good for the fireplace either. I've seen a chimney fire and it's scarry.

Way to go Cap'n. Now what if some kid reads this and starts a chimney fire in his house on Christmas eve? Or, what if some would be terrorist runs down the aisle of a jetliner with flaming oil soaked logs and gets shot by FAM's. What then? [-X [-X [-X

Be thankful he's not your next door neighbor. A chimney fire fueled by burning oil-- #-o [-X

It's really hard for me to comprehend that anyone could be that dumb to risk his family's home and maybe their life by using oil soaked logs to start a fire in the fireplace. Who would want the smell in their house --besides starter logs, fat sticks or paper is not that expensive.

You can try to light it with burning tires. Once you get the rubber burning you can light anything.

As far as I know The only wood that you can burn green is ash.

What kind of Ash? I cut down two Arizona Ash trees some years back and kept the wood for the fireplace. It wouldn't burn until well seasoned and when it was seasoned it had a faint smell like burning plastic. I finally tossed it all out in the woods. There are different types though.

White Ash I think, At the old house we would burn it when the wood pile got low. Never cooked with it.

Zilla, you didn't by chance get those trees from a mall food court did you?
