The burning is the result of the tapered shape you’re cutting. As the blade starts cutting, you only have material on one side of the blade on initial contact, so it’s deflecting the blade to the left. The result is the right side of the teeth rubbing on the material. The problem goes away after the blade has corrected itself. Looks like a combination blade. Not the greatest for ripping, especially in this situation. Use a good quality, heavy rip blade and the problem should go away, or at the very least, improve greatly.

Kick back….your feather board created a pinch point. Get rid of it. You’re sled looks oversized and cumbersome to say the least. If you’re concerned about the sled drifting from the fence, put a runner on the underside of your sled and use the miter slot instead and get rid of the fence as well.
