Acacia Wood

Discussion in 'Woods for Smoking' started by tyglover, Dec 24, 2014.

  1. Picked up 2 truckloads of black acacia. It has a beautiful and extremely tight grain. Would make beautiful lumber. Anyway, I have read up on it and people have said it has a similar flavor to mesquite but I'm wondering if any of you have had luck with it. I'm not gonna be using until next summer, but if it's horrible, it'll make great firewood. 

    Thanks guys!

  2. Man I would have to buy a lathe and try my hand at turning some of that. At least plane some and join it for cutting boarda or something.

    Mesquite is a member of the acacia family.  I keep trying to get my hands on some.  It should be wonderful.
