    Any thoughts pro or con about using unfinished cherry moulding and oak trim for smoking? Or how about using it as a heat source with some lump in an offset?
     
  2. As long as it's unfinished, go for it. My current stash of smoking wood is the cut-offs from an oak and hickory floor I laid last month (unfinished as well). I use it just for smoke. I use an offset (brinkmann Cimmarron) and use charcoal for heat.

    Make sure the molding is solid wood and doesn't have any finger joints in it. The finger joints usually have glue in them.
