A lot of people in the UK seem to use Oak & Apple, with the odd exception I was wondering if anyone has tried anything a bit more unusual? I have tried Blackberry stalks once. You need the stalks when they are brown, and then let them dry out. Ideally you need to use them in a "bundle" as they are very thin, and tend to burn quickly. The trick was to place them near to the heat so they slowly scorch and don't ignite straight away. They are no good for a long smoke, but was kinda OK on a short smoke. If you have used anything a bit more unusual, or weird and wonderful let us hear about it.
