Has anyone smoked with quaking Aspen? I love the way it smells when I split it. But it seems kinda sappy like pine.

Never smoked anything with quaking Aspen.

Does smell good when burning, but my experience it burns fast. If we wanted a warm tent during our hunting trips we had to stoke the fire very frequently.

I will stick to fruit & hard woods.

It is an extremely light smoking wood. Care should be taken to make sure it is dry and seasoned, but is not a sappy wood at all. I gave up on it because it burns very fast produces low heat and very faint smoke. But yes you can cook with it. Cottonwood as well (large leaf).
