Thank you for allowing me to join your site. Iam 61 yrs young. I live in Cape Breton ,Nova Scotia.

I built my first smoker approx 20 yrs ago.I have not smoked in the last couple of years.  I smoke mostly fish.


Hoping to learn from you ppl.       Thanks  JIM.


I am wondering about using birch bark for smoke. I don't mind if there is no distinct "Birch" flavour,.......... I just dont want to ruin a good batch of Makrel with a smelly burnt wood taste.


Any help ?

I don't think I would use birch bark or birch at all. The bark has an oil in it that even wet will burn. This is why when starting a fire in wet conditions birch bark will always start. I have never tried birch but I have a tendency to not use any bark on  my smoking woods. Now apple wood is my favorite as of now and I'm lucky enough to have a endless supply of it.
