Crabapple?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I have a 50 is pound crabapple trunk that my neighbor gave me when he had a tree cut down. I was told that it is very similar to apple and good enough for smoking. Is this true? Does anyone have experience with this?
Thanks,
Ben

I do not have experience with crabapple but would not be afraid to smoke with it.

It is just about like apple. It is a member of the Malus family. Make sure it is seasoned well and use it.

Happy smoken.

I HAVE SMOKED WITH CRAB APPLE A LOT, VERY MILD FLAVOR. I HAVE COOKED CHICKEN, RIBS, BUTTS, BRISKETS AND A LOT OF APP, WITH IT, MY WIFE LIKES THE WOOD BECAUSE SHE DOES NOT LIKE A SMOKEY TASTE IN THE FOOD. SO I WOULD GIVE THIS WOOD A TRY.
