I just pulled this up from one of the fourms , I remember seeing it because someone gave some to me, I pitched it out, ELM and EUCALYPTUS wood is unsuitable for smoking, as is the wood from SASSAFRAS, SYCAMORE and LIQUID AMBER trees.
Ya Rich, I was thinkin the same thing, but the wood I got is super dry. I cut a dead branch off of a live tree so I am hoping it is safe. I am going to wait till I get some more feedback on the subject before using it.
Hey Ghost, I don't know who knows what any more. What I do know is, experience is the best teacher. I have read that ELM is a no-no, I have read that its fine. I KNOW, from useing it for more than 5 years, that it is fine. At least, its fine for me, and I have fed quite a few friends in the last 5 years. If, indeed, it was bad, someone would have noticed it by now. Oh well, we each use what we can get, and what we like. Thats why God gave us, free will. Terry
