Crab Apple same as Regular Apple?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hey y'all - I am wondering if slicing up a crab apple tree would be the same (flavor) taste as what is typically labeled as 'apple' wood chips or chunks that you find in stores??  I have a chance to get some crab apple wood, but I'm not sure it would be the right taste so I wanted to be sure before I get into all the work.

 

Thanks!!

Thanks for the tip, didn't try that first!  Looks like it would basically be the same taste, looking forward to it!

It taste the same. Just remember to let it season then smoke away.

Happy smoken.

Apple is one of the fruit woods that can be used without seasoning it if you are using chips and/or chunks. I have used unseasoned apple and crab apple in the past, it gives you sweet smelling TBS. Thumbs Up

Seasoning wood chunks for smoking is not as important as it is for sick burners.

Chunks in line via minion method dry out very fast
