Anyone try Sycamore?

  1. A guy down the street just cut down a Sycamore tree.  It was well over 100 feet tall.  I was wondering if anyone has smoked with it, or if you even can.

    Numerous internet sources list sycamore wood as one that is NOT suitable for smoking.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    That's interesting.

    I know conifers have lots of resin,but didn't know it was poisonous to smoke with.

    Never got sick from the campfires using conifers that were plenty smokey.

    I also read that the sycamore had some resins too. Too bad,nice tree.

    OK.  I have seen it on several sites, one of which is listed above.

    For a quote from a local site (this one) and from a pretty savvy source, see:

    If you want to try it, go ahead.  For myself, I will trust the knowledge of many who have gone before me.

    Good luck and good smoking.
