Walnut

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I was cleaning up some old dead trees in the back of our lot. This old walnut was dead for some time and I've just never noticed it. It's not any good for lumber so I cut it all up. Is it any good for smoking with? Any meats go better with Walnut then others?

Thanks in advance,

I would use walnut for pork, beef, venison, etc.  I would consider it too aggressive for cheese, poultry and fish.  Nice find, eh?  I'm always conflicted with finds like yours.  As a woodworker, I want the stock for turning & other projects; as a smoker, well -- you know.  Nice to have options =-)

I can, by all means, relate!  Walnut is a good wood to use in the smoker and it does work with the heavier meats.  I use the sawdust/shavings when I'm done milling the wood for projects.
