Hello All. Just one of those "curious" questions. Want to see what others think.
We all agree that using pine in the smoker is a "no no". But we have a couple "survival" tv shows here in the U.K. and often the presenter cooks something over an open pine wood fire. The other recommendation is making a "tea" using hot water and pine needles ( they are supposed to be a good source of vitamin C ). Considering in the good old days they used rosin ( pine tar ) on baseball bats and other things, I am just curious what you folks think of using pine in this way. Desperate times ect., so of course if it were a real "survival" situation you would use whatever you could find ( these guys eat live bugs ) but what if you were just out camping? Keep Smokin!
