I like campfires, I don't like being cold.

Have had some awesome conversations and musical interactions around the campfire.

BUT..Some wood smells great when it burns....some...not so much. Apple wood is nice. Some woods are very aromatic and even smell like incense.

Problem is...the people that heat their houses with wood, want the good hardwoods, but won't buy the junk woods. Wood suppliers sell the junk wood for campfires to city folk that don't know cherry from pine. They even advertise it as campfire wood.

The worst ever is Juniper in the Southwest. The trees can live a thousand years, and when the tree dies, the wood doesn't rot.( Because it is toxic to bugs and micro organisms ) It's a fire hazard in some places, and a problem for Rangers. We found some juniper left by a Ranger at a BLM campsite. We didn't know better and burned it. It was NASTY. No bugs bothered us though.

Stands to reason. I think gin tastes nasty, too, and gin is distilled from juniper berries.

Juniper is bad for chain saw chains too—the tree brings dirt up with the sap and the dirt dulls the chain. We have lots of juniper, but I never cut it for firewood. I could go get the berries—we do like gin.

With the beetles killing a lot of the piņon in the southwest, we may have mostly juniper left. They are very hardy trees.

I hate the waste the gin by starting a fire with it. In Colorado we have special brownies and with gin (drinking it), who needs a fire?

Sorry to hear about the juniper wood problem. We've burned lots of it over the years and never had a problem. Any chance it was green?

Sagebrush is something else, though. Greasewood burns really well but you wouldn't want your grilled steak to taste like it.

Pinyon pine is really nice.

Gin is nice too, but much improved with a little ice, dry vermouth and an olive. "Shaken, not stirred." Straight up.

Yes, perhaps I could live with a well attended, clean burning campfire...

as long as the martinis are shaken... not stirred!
