I like sassafras too. Cuts easy, dries fast, smells great. It's good stuff!Day time temps have been in the 30s-40s with the nights in the 20’s so I’ve been mixing my loads with oak and sassafras. I have to say I like the sassafras. It puts on a great flame show with awesome secondaries and I’m still getting 12-14 hour burns with the big splits of oak in there as well.
