Wood Identification please...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone...New to this site and like what I'm seeing. I do however need some help. I have a local wood vender who offered to deliver some bbq smoking and fire pit wood to my house. But he delivered while I was not home and I have no clue as to which is what. I'm used to opening bags of "wood chunks" from the store and they are clearly marked. Thanks for the info...

And How do you add a pic without it having to be downloaded?

I've heard of oak smoking. But not maple. Are these of any use in the smoker or should I stay away from them?

In the reply box across the top to the right is an icon that looks like a piece of film, that is to post video, just to the left of that is the icon to post pictures. You can post directly from your computer by pressing the "browse" button.

You need to post your location, please, and did this purveyor of BBQ wood say what wood he was bringing to you?

BTW maple is a fine BBQ wood, I use it all the time, however I hesitate to call any of the wood pictured maple. I will say that what ever it is , it is well seasoned.

 Not sure about the first 3. The fourth one could be a fruit wood.  Try a small piece of each, one at a time, in a small fire and find out what it smells like.

I'm good at recognizing wood in person but this the second time I can't tell for sure from pictures.

Maple is fantastic...i used it for a turkey and it was DELICIOUS.  I'm using some maple for some ribs this weekend with some hickory.

Im located in SoCal San Gabriel Valley. The wood came from a a friend of a friend that has a "wood" company in palmdale. I was told pic 1 was firewood and all the rest is oak. Seems a bit different to be Oak...
