    Pro: I am wondering how firewood would be chometz?

    Assuming that “firewood” can be chometz (i.e. it’s not actually wood, it’s edible, but its primary purpose is to use as fuel, such as “shemen sreifah”), why would it be a problem? Buy it now, and sell it over Pesach. Even if you’re one of those people who (for some reason I do not understand) won’t eat chometz that was sold over Pesach, you’re not planning to eat this “wood” anyway, so what’s the problem?

    Along with the wood for the fire, make sure you pick up some of the KP water you’ll need to put out the fire. Can’t be too careful with these things.

    Maybe get a headstart on Teshuva for Rosh Hashanah. I’m sure you don’t want to be late there either.

    if you also need for the wood to be glatt, while you’re at Home Depot get some sandpaper.

    maybe Pro Schnapps is worried that the wood will get wet and somehow distill and Methanol (wood alcohol) will form? PSA: drinking wood alcohol causes blindness.

    Make sure it’s Glatt Kosher, Cholov Yisroel, Yoshon, Gebaken noch Pesach, with Badatz and OU hechsherim. Anything less would be unacceptable for such a holy purpose!

    Wood alcohol is not chometzdik.

    If you goto Home Depot also buy a tarp. If the wood gets rained on you have a problem with Gebrokts.

    My Seder made it clear through to Lag B’Omer last year as well. The only wood I had wasn’t chametz but it wasn’t glatt either my Rav poskend it was bediaved for I wasn’t aware of these chumros. I’ll be more careful this year.

    I think a consensus is forming that Hadloka wood must be glatt (800 grit minimum) and hiddur mitzvah is zoch wood, i.e. real lumber (no particle board that has glue and other fillers). Mehadrin min hamehadrin is (for example) old growth, eye of the redwood, only using the dense center of each log. The rest of the wood you can use to burn the Chometz or even bake matzah. Just not for the bonfire. Needless to say, Hadloka wood should be chopped by a chassidishe lumberjack.

    When I see geshmake yidden trying so hard to cling to the mesoirah of kosher firewood I tell myself there is hope for klal yisroel!!! Pro schnapps you should be gebentched!!!
    When I grew up on the shores of the Danube river in Galicia we only used mayim shelanu to put out the lag baomer fire after we finished tantzing around and around. Regards to Reb shimon when are we booking tickets?

    Joseph:

    Chas V Shalom any self respecting yid should purchase triefah wood for a mitzvah purpose at Home Depot!

    What hechsherim have you seen the lumber yard!?! All Home Depot’s wood has been kiln treated to remove unwanted moisture rendering everything there bishul akum.

    Milhouse,

    There are people that don’t sell חמץ גמור before פסח

    So sell it to me and I will sell it to a goy. I have no such silly hangups.
