    Hi All Would be OK to use unseasoned wood, to start a coal bed?

    Then use apple/cherry splits for flavor and heat.

    Thanks Dan

  2. I used a separate burn barrel then shoveled hots in firebox. Didn't like nasties from semi green wood coating cook chamber. Just me I guess.

    No, it will not burn cleanly and it will be next to impossible to establish a bed of coals.

    Starting with lump charcoal is your best option, but you can use briquettes as well.
