Wet wood?

Wet wood?

Is there any issue in burning we wood in a WFO? Any problems with sap getting onto the hearth? Or am I over thinking it?
I just cut down some large tree branches off of a cedar tree that I was thinking of burning.

Wet wood not a good idea in a WFO.  Too much smoke, not enough heat and bad tastes in the food.
