Does any one use these much for smoking--and if so what flavor do they impart?

All citris is supposed to be good. I haven't tried it personnally (they don't grow well in Connecticut) but they are supposed to be really good. I have dreamed about doing a chicken or turkey with Orange or lemon wood!

Orange - A tangy, citrus smoke. Medium smoke flavor with a hint of fruitiness. Orange gives food a golden color. Produces a nice mild smoky flavor. Excellent with beef, pork and poultry.

Grapefruit - Produces a nice mild smoky flavor. Excellent with beef, pork, fish and poultry.

Lemon - A tangy, citrus smoke. Medium smoke flavor with a hint of
fruitiness. Medium smoke flavor with a hint of fruitiness. Excellent with beef, pork and poultry.

Lime - Medium smoke flavor with a hint of fruitiness. Excellent with beef, pork and poultry.

I have never used it myself before however with chicken or possibly fish I would guess that it would be awesome.

We burned some when I was growing up and did have a wonderful smell to it.

I have used peach before but did not care for it. Just wonder if the citrus would be too powerful.

Maybe use some but mixed with a different wood mixed with it too

I have used grapefruit and several varity of orange tree woods. Very nice on poultry and fish. Not so much on beef. I would personally want a stronger wood for it.

You are very welcome Debi! Glad I could help you out for a change. Let me know how the woods work, I've always been interested in the nectarine and orange woods.
