Crab Apple Tree

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am cutting down my crab apple tree. I am tired of all the small un eatable apples in my yard. I was wanting to keep some of this wood back for smoking. Has anyone used this wood before? It it worth keeping?

The wood is applewood....crab is the fruit. I don't see a difference in the smoke quality from that of a prize-winning large fruiting tree. Applewood was my favorite to use in the electric smoker since 1982! smile.gif

I would keep all that I could...

Yes I use it on a regular basis and is as good as the regular apple trees

Crab apple makes an incredible jelly. My Mom used to make it with a recipe from my Grandma. I wish I had the recipe AND your tree.. PDT_Armataz_01_01.gif

She used to make jelly out of just about anything. My favorite is a mock strawberry with rhubarb.

Hmmm.... Thinking.... dandelion wine, crab apple jelly on sourdough biscuits, goulash... shucks, now I'm hungry...

It's Apple, use it. Apple is Apple as far as wood is concerned.
