    We recently cut down a Bartlett pear tree in my Mom's back yard, and I saved a small amount of the wood with the intentions of smoking with it.  Beings that it is a fruit wood, I assume it is good to smoke with.  Does anyone have any strong opinions one way or the other about using this type of wood to smoke?  And if so, is it on the stronger or milder side?  Thanks!  Happy Smoking!

    I think all varieties of Pear are good to smoke with and tho I've never used any I would expect a mild smoke flavor like most fruit tree woods
