    Since I have to go to my MIL's for Thanksgiving, I plan on smoking my own bird on Sunday. I found a source of pistacchio shells just a few miles from my house. Having never used this source, I am wary, but thinking it might be great Any body has any experience with this?

    i think i'd try it at home on a small scale and not tell anybody.....unless of course it came out good.

    Grumpy.. I mean Grampy ;o),
    Let us know how that turns out if you go with the shells. I love pistacchios. The membrane in a pecan shell is bitter as hell. I know Pistash's don't have that, but wonder how that wood effect the smoke if you used pecan. I have access to English walnuts. That may be the motivation I need to get them cracked and shelled.
