Avocado is a softwood that burns fast, easy, and is a great starter wood. Avocado burns cleaner than other soft or medium woods, generates medium smoke and has a fair smell. Can be used for general cooking and complements nicely as a starter wood. Avocado has a heat value of around 20.8 BTU.
Walnut is excellent firewood with medium density and is easy to burn. It´s good quality firewood that burns clean, is easy to start, and has a pleasant aroma. The BTU value is not as high as other hardwoods, such as OAK or ALMOND, but is much better than softwood, such as PINE. Walnut creates a very strong wood smoke and provides intense flavor on the short side of bitter. Ideal meats for Walnut are beef, pork and wild game.
