    It's a great wood to use. Nice and subtle smoke flavor. Its a lot like apple. I just scored 2 truck loads about a month ago myself. It splits good too.

    They put 2-3 BPs in every front yard in my neighborhood when they built the subdivision. Now, after every little windstorm, you can get free BP wood just by driving down the road and picking it up from the street. I've got too much wood, unfortunately most of it is still green, so I'll start picking it up next fall at the earliest.
