One of my co-workers has a black walnut tree that needs trimming. Is this safe for smoking and has anyone used it before?
I just used some last week on some stufz burgers and then later in the week for some regular burgers.
I'll have to say that I was sure it would have a bitter taste but it didnt! Mrs SOB said she really liked it!
It had a strong smoke taste But not as strong as mesquite. I only had them on the UDS for about an hour
so if it was used for a long smoke it might be too strong. Try it! I like it and will do it again!
I've used it numerous times and never noticed a bitter taste. It is definitely milder than hickory and mesquite.
One of the main reasons I made my mini-WSM was to try different woods. I can smoke a couple chickens and some sausage in it and see what flavor different woods impart. The only conclusion I've come to is that everything that comes out of it tastes great!
