Is peach wood safe? I know the pit has arsnic in the center so is the wood itself safe to cook with?

Not only is it safe but it is also an excellent wood to use.. Imparts a milder flavor and is often used with fish or poultry...

Just make sure you season it before you use it.
Average is one year but you can cut into small chunks and season in as little as 4-6 months depending.

Just got my hands on some maple so I'm going to cut the smaller branches into 4x4 chunks and figure it should be well seasoned come Spring time.

Not to hijack this thread but why do you have to let it season if you are going to wet when you use it? Can you use it fresh from the tree?
Think I asked this yesterday but it didn't show up.

Nope you better send it all to me for proper disposal biggrin.gif

Like others have said, it will provide a sweet mellow flavor.

If you use it green (not seasoned) its got sap in it and moisture and first it wont burn good and it will put off black bitter smoke. You would not be able to eat the food it would taste horrible. It would be like smoking a cigar or cigarette with green tobacco leaves.....Somone else will chime in on this one Im sure shortly......

Sure. Don't try to eat it, or shove it up yer nostrils. Or grab it hot out of the pit. McDonald's disclaimer....

Hey, it's all good! I watch it just cause it's the only BBQ show I can find on tv and my wife will actually watch it with me cause she loves that reality show crap.

Anyway, I still want to try peach wood. I've heard of other people using it and liking it.
