Good apple chips or Bad apple chips??

Discussion in 'Woods for Smoking' started by majorlee69, Feb 6, 2008.

  1. When I think about smoking with apple I picture wood from a beautiful apple tree from a local orchard......what about the ugly, non producing apple tree in the back yard???? Do you think it's the same??

    Probably not producing because apple tree's need to be polinated from another tree!
    Same wood, cut off a branch and season and try it![​IMG]
     
  3. It does bare fruit, their just really small and a nusence.

    Perfectly safe to use, majorlee. I do all the time. Several crabapple and wild cherry (choke cherry) in my back yard. Good stuff, all.

    Cheers,

    Sounds like just a different kind of apple tree lots of different types of apples out there............

    sounds like you might want to prune them anyhow to develop a nice shape and stimulate growth. Be sure to make clean cuts as close to the trunk as possilble.
