Firewood is often seen as a winter time thing but that is not the case. There are firewood types that can be used year round and especially all the smoking wood and cooking wood types are used all year round. To look strictly at winter firewood types that burn hot there a couple different options:
1.) One of the hottest burning firewoods happen to grow in Kansas and it is Osage Orange. It is a extremely hot burning and long burning wood. The native american indians used it in bow making. It is a very popular smoking wood in the kansas area. It also called horse apple and a few other description.
2.) Another hot burning firewood is persimmon wood. It grows in a few parts of the United States and is also a great smoking wood. Persimmon mostly grows wild but is a very hot burning fireplace firewood and also makes a excellent smoking wood.
One of the year round firewood options is Santa Fe Pinion firewood. It is great in the spring and summer because it repels bugs and mosquitoes. Important: Pinion wood is not a cooking or smoking wood. Since pinion wood is a pine (gymnosperm) it does not do well for cooking. You can roast marshmallows with pinion wood but nothing further than that in the cooking spectrum. In the fall and winter, pinion wood is a hot and long burning wood that works great in indoor fireplaces, outdoor fire pits and chiminea fireplaces. Pinion firewood has a spectacular aroma and is also referred to as the "smell of Christmas."
If you are looking for a hotter burning firewood then Hickory firewood is a really good option. Hickory has a very hard inner core and can burn longer that other burning firewood. We have sold a lot of hickory wood in the winter months because it has a long and hot burn time in the indoor fireplace and outdoor fire pit.
