Bob,

 

I keep meaning to call my allergist.  I will call today.  My daughter hasn't had any more issues since she stopped eating the pork.  I am smoking chicken this weekend hopfully.  We probably wont let her try it though.  I think we'll keep her to regular bbq for a while.

Bacon is smoked.

Dcarch,

 

Thats an interesting point.  however the only bacon we've given her is mass produced in those lovely plastic wraps from the local supermarket.  Don't think that really counts.  lol

Rob,

I'm glad to hear that your daughter is ok and there was nothing more serious. If you call your doctor and find that using certain wood, can cause a reaction, would you post what the doc says? My neighbor's child has a nut allergy and I won't use pecan or any other related wood when I smoke something. I would hate to be the cause of a reaction.

Shinny,

 

When I hear back from my Doctor I will certainly post what he tells me.  One of my daughter's friends has a nut allergy also. Since I made a batch without using the smoker she was able to eat that batch of jerky.  just FYI.

 

I will call doctor back tomorrow and let you know what he says.
