Bad Wood

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
When oak gets really old and the bark begins to rot, can the heartwood still be used for cooking? I still have a quantity of red oak that is good on the outside, but the layer directly under the bark is really mushy. Need some info, please.

Thanks in advance, Joe

No, not moldy, just very dry and crumbly on the outside.

I just take a ax and knock the bad stuff off.

 

Use the rest.

I second this, i think if its not moldy you should be fine but if you think it might affect your meat then split off the gunky stuff and use the good stuff.

 

Happy Smoking,
