  1. Hi, I'm trying to find out if olive pips are safe to use for smoking.

    If so how do you prepare them.

  2. Hello.  Welcome.  I see this is your first post.  Please take some time and swing over to Roll Call and introduce yourself so that we may give you a proper "Hello".  All info you can provide us with such as smoker type, location and so on will help us answer any questions you may have, and pictures help a bunch.  As for your question: Olive wood is safe for smoking so I would ASSUME the seeds would be safe.  As for prep, they would need to be dried.  You must have access to H*** of a lot of olive pips if you are thinking of using them for smoked flavour!  I would think you would need some sort of tray type smoke generator; like the AMNPS, due to the seeds being so small.  Just my thoughts.  Keep Smokin!

  3. Just did a test run with the olive pips -heaps of smoke

    going to smoke some chicken wings & thighs tomorrow

    Will post to say how they go.
