A guy down the street just cut down a Sycamore tree.  It was well over 100 feet tall.  I was wondering if anyone has smoked with it, or if you even can.
Numerous internet sources list sycamore wood as one that is NOT suitable for smoking.

Good luck and good smoking.
Do you have a cite for one of those sources?
That's interesting.

I know conifers have lots of resin,but didn't know it was poisonous to smoke with.

Never got sick from the campfires using conifers that were plenty smokey.

I also read that the sycamore had some resins too. Too bad,nice tree. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
