    I'm a noob and wanting to build my own smoker. Got several ideas but curious about wood. I have access to all kind of maple woods etc.but no hickory and wood like that. I have read apple is a good smoking wood. I know of several old wild crabapple trees and wonder if it would be a good smoking wood. Anyone tried this and how good was it?

    I would think it should be fine.  You'd want to cut it and stack it and let it season a year or two.
  3. Pops is right, you can use crab apple

    Crab apple  is a great wood for smoking. I have  lots of it from my dad and I use  a couple of chunks every time I run my UDS.
