Brought down a huge oak in the front yard. I know all the Q joints back home smoked with oak. This is a laurel oak, is it suitable to smoke with or just campfire wood?
Hello Rick. I have never used laurel oak. I have used plenty of live oak. I can give you no definitive answer but every source I have checked basically says there is no BAD oak to use for smoking. So from what I have read you will not be poisoned by it but may not like the flavour. Hopefully by bumping your thread maybe you will get more answers. Keep Smokin!
Thank you gentlemen. I appreciate it. Nice fella from the site told me it's a close cousin to the live oak(we have plenty of those here as well). I'll do a lil test run with it and do as you guys suggest and give results. Thanks again.
