    Does any one use these much for smoking--and if so what flavor do they impart?

    All citris is supposed to be good. I haven't tried it personnally (they don't grow well in Connecticut) but they are supposed to be really good. I have dreamed about doing a chicken or turkey with Orange or lemon wood!

    Orange - A tangy, citrus smoke. Medium smoke flavor with a hint of fruitiness. Orange gives food a golden color. Produces a nice mild smoky flavor. Excellent with beef, pork and poultry.

    Grapefruit - Produces a nice mild smoky flavor. Excellent with beef, pork, fish and poultry.

    Lemon - A tangy, citrus smoke. Medium smoke flavor with a hint of
    fruitiness. Medium smoke flavor with a hint of fruitiness. Excellent with beef, pork and poultry.

    Lime - Medium smoke flavor with a hint of fruitiness. Excellent with beef, pork and poultry.

    I have never used it myself before however with chicken or possibly fish I would guess that it would be awesome.

    We burned some when I was growing up and did have a wonderful smell to it.

    I have used peach before but did not care for it. Just wonder if the citrus would be too powerful.

    Maybe use some but mixed with a different wood mixed with it too
     
  4. I use orange and lemon both work well. Try it you maybe suprised.

    I have used grapefruit and several varity of orange tree woods. Very nice on poultry and fish. Not so much on beef. I would personally want a stronger wood for it.
