I was chunking some hickory and sorting it by appearance, smell. weight and signs of mold. All the split logs I chopped up were somewhat equal in weight. I did not even consider ones that were feather lite compared to others.
Here is a pic of the pile.
If you were looking at this pile of wood and were trying to decide which chunks would best suit you for todays cook, which would it be based on site alone ?
What are all the variables in choosing wood from your stash ?
I have picked out four chunks that I feel cover one extreme to the other as far as picking out chunks goes.
If you could only pick one chunk which would it be ?
What are some thoughts as to what you answer is ?
