All citrus wood works well
post #22 of 30

I've been using my fruit tree cuttings, peach, apple, pear, etc for smoking everything from ribs to brisket to kielbasa (cherry), and yes, i've used a chainsaw to cut them.  I have never noticed any bad flavor from the bar oil.  I think worrying about this is a little anal.  That stuff is a very thin oil that evaporates pretty quickly, any my wood seasons a long time before i use it.

You also can use elect. or gas saws if you have only used veggie oil as bar lube. Works great for smoker wood!!

I have used orange wood to smoke with for years. We cut 80 old growth trees off my property and I stock piled a bunch of the wood. It burns very clean and leaves only a fine greyish ash. We even used a bunch in the fireplace.
My experience with it is a mild smoke taste. I would recommend it.

Did you ever try smoking with Mulberry wood?  I've been using Apple but around here (Ohio) Mulberry is very easy to get since almost every fence row as them.

We have whats called a fruitless mullberry here on the other coast, but I don't think it would be a good wood. I have been eying some of the Olive thats around here though.

Any fruitwood would work. I have tried many and get a different but suttle sweet flavor from each..........biggrin.gif

I wouldn't worry in the least about the chainsaw bar oil. It's a very tiny amount and most of the oil ends up in the shavings.
