Greetings and Salutations,
I have another question about a certain type of wood and if it would be good to use in my smoker. I have a huge Carob tree that I extremely dislike. Its a nice looking tree, but puts out tons of bean pods and trashes up the yard. But at one time, the food police thought Carob beans were a healthy alternative to chocolate. Now my wife would call that blasphemy, as she is a confirmed chocoholic.
I did my yearly trimming and have some big branches that I set aside for this possibility. The wood is quite hard and I'm thinking it may impart a mocha like taste to whatever I would use it for, but that's an assumption. Has anyone here tried Carob wood for smoking? If so, what would you imagine it would work with? Or should I just pitch the limbs? Im up for an experiment, but maybe someone here has already tried it.
