Plum: Anyone Use It?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I went out today to cut down my sister-n-law neighbors -apple- tree. Well, when I got there it was a plum tree. LOL. Anyhow, has anyone ever used plum? If so, what foods and how did they turn out?

 

Thanx gang,

Plum is great sweet wood for smoking . dry at least 6 months . i use sweet wood on pretty much everything but beef.

I've used plum on pork spares and yard birds...it's a great sweet smoke wood for those milder flavored meats. It would be good for pork loins, center-cut chops and shoulder steaks, as well.

Thanx for the replies. It sounds as though I've made a good catch here.

I got a bunch from my brother in law. 

I find it similar to cherry.

Plum is a very good wood to smoke with!.  Similar to Apple, but not a sweet as Peach.  I have a some in Sawdust form and it's  very nice.

 

Next time you cut down a tree, fill the oil reservoir with vegetable oil and you can use the chainsaw chips for smoking too.

 

 

ENJOY!

 

Good Score.

I have been using plum since last winter when an ice storm wrecked my plum tree. I have used it for pork butt, salmon and cheese. I have also taken limbs on my table saw to make saw dust for my cold smoker, that too has worked well for me.

 

good luck
