Can you help me identify this wood?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hello all. I'm new around here and I just got a smoker. I just picked up some wood that I don't plan on using yet because its too fresh. But I really have no idea what it is. The guy I got it from said it could be maple or from a holly tree. Could be 2 different types too maybe. The bark looks a little different. This is in NJ.

Welcome to the board! It looks like they sold off the pieces that were the hardest to split.

I didn't pay a dime. :-)  So im thinking the holly is not going to be used for smoking. Maybe another use in store for that. Thanks for the welcome.

Already have checking. Slice off some disks and throw'um in your cook chamber or gasser next cook. Looks like really nice wood. Enjoy.

None of that wood looks like the maple that I use. Some of the bark reminds me of box elder.

This is the tree ID site I use, perhaps you can find it there-
