    [​IMG]   I was wondering if anyone had ever tried peach wood chips? Maybe this wood is to soft?

    Another wood that I would like to know about is Korean Pear wood.  I just love this pear. I was hoping that someone wood have information to share on these two woods.  I may have a chance to obtain some, and dry it out.

    I love peach wood. I use fist size chunks all the time. I will be ordering Pear next month (about a week away) as well. 

    Very fine woods for smoking.

    You may want to "season" it or let it dry. If it's just branches, many people let it dry for 1-3 months, depending on size, temp and humidity. I've heard just putting in on the grill grates for an hour or so at 250 will help dry it. 

    The stuff I buy is 3-4 months old. The smoke flavor profile is a tiny bit different than well seasoned Peach (~1 year) but I like a little "green" to my wood.
