I know some guys down here in Florida that say they used to use palmetto stumps for smoking. I've never heard of this before, but I did know some guys that smoked turkeys in a pit (like in the ground) and they would wrap the birds in palmetto fronds (leaves) before they put them in the pit and buried them. Have any of you Florida guys (or anyone else) heard of using palmetto? I'm just looking into any local wood sources or anything different. This doesn't necessarily sound good to me, but I know they used to use mangrove for smoking fish. That doesn't necessarily sound appetizing either, but the oldtimers swear by it.
