Hi from Missouri

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
This, I do believe is the site I've been looking for! I'm just an amateur but I been at it for about 40 years, man and boy. Remember grilling half chickens for the 4th of July (my birthday) for the family when I was about 10. Did a lot of campfire cooking from there. Got interested in BBQ (smokin') when I lived in an apartment up in Nebraska--smokin' and apartment livin' just don't work well. Moved back to KC area and been smokin' ever since. Just a Weber kettle but I can make the meat fall off the rib bones. Like to play with different smokewoods. I'm a cabinetmaker so I bring home fall-offs from different woods to play with. And I like to garden so there's tree-trimmins from the fruit trees--peach prunings rank right up there with pine scraps on the list of things NOT to smoke with. As a family we took up camping last year so I'm back to playing with open fires and have recently acquired a Dutch oven. Lookin' forward to learnin' a lot here.

Happy New Year,

Welcome! I did not know that peach was bad. I've been thinking about getting some since it is readily available in the "Peach State". There's a lot of apple and pecan too. Pecan is one of my favorites.

Welcome to SMF, from another Missourian. Hope you enjoy yourself, and there is a lot of reading to be done here. Ask any questions you may have. Don't worry that a question has been asked before, as someone will point you in the right direction, or answer it for you. Folks here love q-views and picks of you smoking equipment. Again welcome and enjoy.

Although I've never personally used peach, I've seen it on many lists that give it the thumbs up for use with smoking.

Here are some lists for woods for smoking lists:

I have several peach trees, so I've used it. I will say that when I first tried it, it wasn't well seasoned, and tasted bitter. However, if seasoned for at least 6 months, it has a nice mild smoke.

I'd say the Geek is on it - it has to be seasoned 6 months minimum.
