alergies and smoke

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello My daughter is alergic to nuts. I was going to buy some wood pellets for my amnps and saw pecan. I didnt purchase these because of her alergy.Has any one ever had an alergic reaction to the smoke from the wood of a nut tree? She gets a mild reaction from picking acorns up off the ground in the fall so I probally will not try using oak or pecan etc. thanks for any comments. Dave

Allergies are something that affects each of us in a different way. The impact that it would have on your daughter is best discussed with her doctor.  When I was a kid I was allergic to over 100 items on the multiple scratch tests the did on me. Thru treatment I am pretty much allergy free with a few exceptions. If it were me I would not tempt fate without talking to the doc.

I know nothing about allergies but one thing to be aware of is that a LOT of the pellets out there are a mix of oak and whatever flavor you are buying (for example cherry that you are buying may be 70% oak and 30% cherry).   Be sure to ask if they are 100% flavor or if they are mixed with oak or alder.
