    I have used it on some butts and some fish before and it's really a nice and light flavor I don't know about dry. If it was to dry wouldn't just burn up quickly.

    I've heard its good, but never used it. Nobody ever cuts a persimmon tree down around here so idk that I'll ever get the chance.

    i have just tried some last week or so, and it was great, i'll be using it from here on out, also, if you have any extra you can make a fairway wood for golf out of it also, thats what most golf clubs were made of long ago.
