I am new to the site. been smoking 3 years.


I have an Oak tree that will have to be cut down, as it has Oak Gall.


Will that wood be ok to use for smoking meat?

I would think so.  As I understand it, Oak galls are usually caused by a reaction to insects.  One concern I can think of is do you know if any pesticides were used on the tree that might have been absorbed by the wood?  I that is a possibility, I would not use the wood.  Also where are the galls?  Most are in the leaves and limbs and I would think you are talking about splitting the main body wood into "splits" for smoking.
