    Buckeye is supposed to be lightweight. I know they make artificial limbs with it but I don't know about smoking with it. It doesn't grow up here.

    It's a nut tree, related to the horse chestnut. Might work.
    Have you burned any? How does it smell?
    It's around here but I've never burned any.
    Do a test burn (not a smoke, hate to waste any good eats [​IMG] ) and see what you think. Let us know.

    Hey Richtee,

    Why would you want to use that godforsaken nut wood [​IMG] I hear it stinks to high heaven!! You can smell it once you cross the border going south on I-75 or US-23 and it doesnt stop until you hit Kentucky!!
    Use something good like a Sugar Maple or Michigan Apple wood!! [​IMG]

    Hail to the Victors!!!!

    p.s. I caught on to your trash talking immediately!!

    I'm not too worried, coach Tressle got some tips from Appalachian State.

    Good One Twister!! I hope the Sweater Vest has been talking to App State. I heard that Lloyd Carr was spotted in Illinois this week near the University of Illinois campus...

    You're no good Rich.
    Guess you have to care about junior professional sports.

    Heh...or at least be within a couple hundred miles of perhaps the biggest rivalry in college - err junior professional- sports. Yes, it's pretty much tied with two or three others.

    It's a BIG deal in the sports world. College athletics has it's problems <mostly stemming from OSU ;{) > but it's still better than the pro offering, in many regards, IMHO.

    Hey spydermike, I heard the same thing, heard Carr was looking for a job for next year.[​IMG] Wanted to coach a team that could beat Ohio State.

    Something an OSU fan and a MU fan can agree on. Pro sports is mostly over paid cry babies who only think of themselves.

    Well, here in the KC area the big "Border War" (goes back to the slavery thing and civil war, how's that for carrying a grudge?) happens in a week - Kansas University and Missouri University at Arrowhead Stadium in KC.
    Folks, THAT'S a rivalry. And both are doing really well this year.
    But I wouldn't give 5 cents to get in Arrowhead to watch.
    Overpaid coaches and under the table professional players. It's all in who can buy the best. And that's the truth.

    Yeah, I think this is Lloyds last year, I think he calls it quits after Saturday. Then we can begin the Les Miles era in Ann Arbor!!
