I was looking through the forums to determine the best woods to use for smoking, and it got me thinking. What wood types are BAD to smoke with?

I haven't seen a list of nonsmokable(I think I just made up a new word!) woods, but was wondering about Juniper. I have a treeline of Juniper trees and when I cut a dead branch with a power saw it smells wonderful! Anyone tried it?

Thanks for the replies. In my further research on the subject, I found this...
The bottom of the listing states what not to use.
I should have looked harder before I posed the question.
Thanks Joe, I did some research and found that it is used in some Scandinavian countries for smoking salmon. But, I also learned that there are about 30 varieties. Mine is a tree, so probably a conifer-won't chance it. Sure does smell good when cut though.
