cherry wood mold

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have some chunks of cherry wood stored in plastic buckets with a screw on lid. I also have some that has not been chunked yet and is stored right next to the buckets outside. The cunks in the bucket have a white coating on it. The wood stored inthe open dosn't. Is this a mold . Is it safe to smoke with.

Probably OK- but why risk it... rinse it off , then set the wood out in the sun to dry.

Yanno, I was just thinking, you could also prolly burn it off... got a turkey fryer? Or fire up a gas grill to 450 or so and cook it off... of course remove before wood burns. A bit of char oughta do it tho.

If your storing it in a tight container, it's mold because the wood is still wet.
Let it season a lil longer!
