Smoking with Citrus wood

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hope someone has an answer for me. Had a series of thunder storms come through our area last night and the wind uprooted an old grapfruit tree we had in the back yard. I was waiting until I had a few more sheckles so I could hire someone to cut the thing down and cart it away. Oh well, "tme waits for no man." My question is can I smoke with grapefruit wood (after it has seasoned, of course)?

Short answer... Absolutely!

I don't see why not, most fruit woods are perfectly safe.
Never heard of using grapefruit wood but would be interesting.

I'd say no. Just ship it to me and I'll dispose of it. icon_wink.gif Actually, any fruit wood would be fine to smoke with. By all means, let us know how it compares to the more common fruit woods like apple and cherry.

Go easy with it. Grapefruit can come on pretty strong. I had a friend refer to it as "Mesquite Lite"
