post #21 of 23

Black walnut is strong, just make sure it is seasoned,  Green Walnut is not good at all !!!

Where I am located we use black walnut as a smoking wood because it is ready available. However, my preference is to a heavy (biter) smoke flavor on our fresh meats. We have yet to experience any reaction to handling or smoking with black walnut wood in use with our smokers (outdoor cooking).

Hi, I have tried several times walnut wood chips separately and mixed with other flavors and can definitely state that walnut as a smoking wood has very strong and bitter taste and smell. Only mixing with some sweet fruit trees would make it better for the meat. By the way, the smoke from a walnut tree is acrid and grilling becomes unpleasant process. I have also tried different brands and stores and there is a huge different between them, because of different sizes, packages etc.. I personally think that ecowoodbbq.com has almost the best quality/price ratio. Have bought 4 or 5 times from this store and every time perfect delivery and quality, but the price is overstated for a little, that's from negative. Walnut wood chips that I bought there weren't so caustic and strong as usual. Mix such light walnut tree with apple or cherry and you will get really interesting smoke, consequently taste and smell.
