Pecan Shells for Smoking???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Has anyone ever used pecan shells for smoking? I can have all I want from a local sheller. Just trying to find out if they might work in a smoke box of an electric smoker. Comserned that they might produce a bitter taste like bark.

I know of cold smoked cheese using hazelnut shells.  I don't know what shells would do in heat - anyone???

I've used pistachio shells.  My only concern with Pecans might be either a bitter taste or a toxin released (some nuts have cyanide, etc., but I don't know about the shells/husks.).

Works fine when used in small quantitities,  if you use to much they become kind of bitter but just a handful or two works great when added to a charcoal fire.  I don't see how a watt burner would be different

I smoke cheese using the soldering iron trick and pecan shells all the time its  great.  I have also lit one piece of charcoal  placed it in a empty veggie can then put a hand full of shells on top works good as well.
