    Hell Yes!

    Take all you can!!!

    Wonderful for just about everything, but probably best on pork or poultry

    I bet it would work great for cheese too

    Sweet smelling wood

    All fruit woods can be used. Plum is similar to peach, pear, nectarine. Good for all poultry and pork.

    LOL...Must be a plum wood season.  My neighbor just cut down a tree and offered me the wood.  I will also take as much as I can get :)

    My question is, what is the best way to use it in an MES?  Is there a good way to make it into chips?  I use chips all the time (I have bags and bags of different woods).  Or can I just cut it into a chunk a little smaller than the chip try in the MES and just use that?
