now im not too sure which is which and am not sure i want to even use sassafras.
whats your thoughts.
By doing the math, according the studies that show that consuming safrole oil causes cancer, you would need to drink an equivalent of 24 gallons of highly concentrated sassafras tea a day for an extended period of time. The rats that got cancer were injected with large amounts of pure safrole directly into their abdomen. The conclusion, you would die of water intoxication before sassafras tea could possibly do any damage to you. Still, everything in moderation
Remember this everyone, and make sure you don't share any meat you smoke with sassafras with your rats.
BBQ Pittmasters All Stars show revealed use of sassafras on Venison, Elk and other game meat.
It may even go well with Lamb. As for Alder wood it is best used with salmon and other type oily
fish. Will have to get some fresh saltwater species in order to try it on King Mackeral, Ling Cod,
and some other species. If you fellow smokers have used these let me know. I'm about to go
off shore out of Corpus Christi so need to know which "catch" I should concentrate on keeping.
