All the info I could find on it points to no good. It's said to be extremely susceptable to insects and worms, and is a fast growing tree, with a short lifetime- typically meaning a sappy type softer wood. But that's just what I would think.

Do not use it for cooking.

Arizona ash is not a soft wood and it is not sappy. BUT it is still no good for smoking or cooking but it does well in a fireplace.

According to everything I've read ash is a fast burner and good for fish and pork.
