    I know there have been questions as to whether crabapple can be used to smoke with. I used it this weekend to smoke 14 lbs. of pork butt and the result were fantastic. It looks, smells, and gives off the exact same smoke as apple. I have an absolute ton of it so I am relieved to be able to report on its merit as a smoking wood. :D NOTE that I use wood exclusively to smoke with and do not use charcoal at all. I burned a ton of it and the smoke flavor was mild and pleasant.

    RMM, In the sticky "Woods for Smoking" at the top of the forum lists the Crabapple as a suitable wood. The list describes the Crabapple as being similar to apple wood.
