Somebody said if you have a allergy to walnuts that the smoke would hurt them.... i said that's BS.       Of course it's not the best wood and there plenty of better woods out there but to say it could be dangerous is past silly.  It won't taste the best because it's much stronger than hickory but it won't kill anyone.

Please go start a large fire, throw on some posion Ivy and take a few deep breaths. Then post from the ICU how smoke of something you are allergic to cant hurt you

Jeep that's not even close to the same thing but i'm not going to argue with you.   It's not even the best thing to smoke anyway so this should be all a moot point.     I'd use it in a stick burner if that's all i had but it wouldn't be my first choice and i'd never use chunks in a charcoal burner.

Some people are allergic to peanuts, yet most of us are not - so we (the rest) eat peanuts, and shrimp, strawberry and drink milk.

The toxic substance is also found in pecan and hickory yet we use them plenty.

If you ate walnuts before you are not taking any chance. Besides....one of the sponsors here, BBQ delight sells black walnut pellets- which I used. I found it to be the smoke truest to the fruit smell/taste. Absolutely great smoke.

P.s. when I was a kid my mom use to make jam from whole green walnuts (unripe). I don't really like jams. I loved that though. Now I am sad...no more green walnut jam, mom is not around anymore.

Here's an old thread from on here.  I agree with Bear, dust is different than smoke.

Forgot to say stickyfingers got it right. Walnut wood is expensive.

If I ever own anything bigger than my city size backyard walnut planting is the first item on my todo list.

If using as fuel you can alternate with other woods or if you foil on a stick burner you can use it then. I've used Black Walnut sparingly in the past on my stick burner.

In that case you have a few options.

  • You can use it sparingly as in a ratio of 1 to 5 using small splits. e.g. 5 splits of oak to 1 split of walnut
  • You can use the walnut by itself during the foil stage if you foil, such as the -2- in 3-2-1 when cooking ribs.
  • You can start a coal bed with your walnut and once you have a good coal bed start using your other preferred wood, prior to adding your food to the pit.

 

 

I have done this with no ill effect and I'm not going to quote allergies or science, and leave you with this, it works for me.
