Unseasoned oak??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi All I picked up some unseasoned oak at my reclying center. I was thinking of using it to just start a good coal bed before adding the flavoring wood.
Any idea's or thoughts on this process?

Thanks DanB

Dan, I personally would not use it. It will take too long to dry out enough to burn into coals. It will produce a tremendous amount of white billowy smoke and will start a creosote build up in your smoker. IMO, your best bet is to find an out of the way spot and stack it up for next spring.

That's my $0.02, Joe

Agreed. I will only used seasoned wood. Period. Green wood produces thick white smoke. And leaves a bitter taste.
