The pioneers who followed Davy Crockett valued hickory as firewood, too. (It produces 24 million Btus per cord, abut the same output as 200 gallons of No. 2 fuel oil.) They also smoked ham and bacon with hickory.Our craftsman have been working with this wood for years and have produced many heirloom pieces
