wood question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is there any fruit tree woods you should avoid?

I have a plum tree that might need to be removed so I am wondering if I should save it for smokin? I also have a pear tree, two different types of Apple trees and a cherry tree that are going to need some limbing so I was planning on keep anything over 3" dia from them also.

the next part is for anyone that has used Pear/plum how did you like them?

and would you notice a differance between different species of apple? should I keep my deepanddelicious seperated from my Macintosh, and the same for my wildcherry and bin cherry wood?

I can't think off hand of any fruit wood that you should avoid. If there, someone will chime in and let you know.
As far as your Plum tree goes, yes, a good wood for smoking. A keeper for sure. I don't believe you would notice a difference at all in the varieties of apple wood.
The Cherry, well I don't know about that one.
Have you seen the list of woods that Dutch put out here? If not, check it out, pretty interesting. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll post a link for it.

Heres a good link to read


Different varieties of the same species are all pretty close to the same as I understand it

Thanks for the link, good read, but they don't mention what plum is like.

Plum shouldn't be any different from Peach, Pear, etc.

I have used plum in the past and it is great! Hard to explain "what it is like," but rest assured you cannot go wrong.

Great, thanks guys. the hard part now is going to be deciding which wood to use now that I will have 8 different types, but this is a good problem I am thinking.icon_smile.gif
