by Dragon I mean your BBQ or Fire Pit
or camping this summer

The best hardwoods in terms of heat generation and “burnability” without heavy smoke include: hard maple, pecan, ash, white oak, birch, beech, red oak, dogwood, apple, and hickory.

The best softwoods in terms of fast warming fires that produce medium heat and burn out before you go to bed: spruce, southern yellow pine, and fir.

Ideal for outdoor fire pits are apple and pinon pine. One of the best cooking woods, apple is favored for its sweet aroma and the way it burns hot without generating much flame. Not so good for cooking, pinon (pronounced pinion) also produces a wonderful fragrance and naturally repels mosquitoes and other insects.

So what’s the best wood to use in an outdoor fire pit or fireplace?

Experiment around a bit and find out what is best for you and your budget and tastes and smells .
