Anyone ever tried Ash?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was just given some Ash that I cn use to make some nice wood chunks. It is already dried and it smells pretty good when I cut it with my saw. Anyone ever tried smoking with it?

Never used it but it is safe to smoke with.

Found several sites that sell or use ash wood.

"Ash, an exceptional hardwood that is a fast burner, has a light flavor which allows it to easily mix with other hardwoods."

NO---NO----Don't burn your old Louisville Slugger !!!!!eek.gif

Just kidding, Ash should be about like Oak. Made 3 kitchens out of Ash. Worked just like Oak, except it was a little more "stringy".

I would think it would be a pretty good wood to smoke with.

My grandpa used to use ash from what I was told to smoke fish.

Thanks for the info. I haven't gotten my smoker out for the season yet, but as soon as I do I will try the ash and let you all know how it goes.

Being a trim carpenter myself, I would think Ash would also be a lot like oak as well, though I have not used it as well.
Give it a go! Let us know.

That's good to know, I have about 100 board ft of 8/4 Ash I was looking use on something. Might as well be a brisket this weekend!

Just make sure you watch your temperatures. Ash burns hot, hotter than hickory. It will give you a lighter smoke taste as compared to oak.
