Firewood Not To Use For Cooking
For cooking, especially indoors, stay away from softwoods and greenwoods. You should also stay away from woods that are laminated, pressure-treated, or painted. These kinds of woods give off toxic gases and should not be burned indoors for any reason. Softwood firewood such as pine, cedar, or redwood contains sap, which produces undesirable amounts of soot and smoke during the burning process. The category of firewood to use for cooking should instead be seasoned and dried hardwoods. Hardwoods contain the appropriate amount of BTUs or cooking power needed to achieve an effective flame. They also burn cleaner and last longer compared to softwoods.
