I would think so as most lump charcoal is made from that sort of scrap wood.

Is it solid wood or is it pieces? If it's pieces I would say no because of the glue that they would use. So just make sure that it is solid before using it for food.

I would say your good to go if unfinished and not laminated-oak is a good smoking wood.

I guess I am going to be a maybe decenting opinion here. I assume that this is furniture, cabinet grade. wood. I have a cabinet maker a few minutes away from me. After gathering some scrap oak I lit it up. It was kiln dried being furniture grade wood and burnt up so quickly it was of little use in a smoker. Remember even cured 1 yr old wood is not as dry as these processed woods. Just my 2cents.
