I think it's ok to burn almond wood. It's the other woods they don't want you to burn, like Ron Wood, Tiger Woods, James Woods.

Seriously you can tell it is almond smoke, not apricot or a fruit wood from Brentwood? Speaking of which, can you burn wood in Brentwood since it's named after a wood one would hope so.

Spare the air and die of pneumonia?
