Aspen is not classified as a hardwood or fruitwood so I wouldn't use it for anything than wood for the fireplace.

If you are burning out a smoker to reseason it or burning the lining out of an old 55 gallon drum to build an UDS, I'd say go with it and leave the good stuff for cooking with. . . I have a buddy the uses busted up pallets to burn out his drums for UDS's and those for the most part a made from pine.

After many years of heating with wood, I can say aspen burns slow and cold. Not much heat and hard to keep going. I actually regulated fire temperatures with it.
