    Hi all,
    I have a 50 is pound crabapple trunk that my neighbor gave me when he had a tree cut down. I was told that it is very similar to apple and good enough for smoking. Is this true? Does anyone have experience with this?
    Thanks,
    Ben

    I do not have experience with crabapple but would not be afraid to smoke with it. 
     
  3. It is just about like apple. It is a member of the Malus family. Make sure it is seasoned well and use it.

    Happy smoken.

  9. I HAVE SMOKED WITH CRAB APPLE A LOT, VERY MILD FLAVOR. I HAVE COOKED CHICKEN, RIBS, BUTTS, BRISKETS AND A LOT OF APP, WITH IT, MY WIFE LIKES THE WOOD BECAUSE SHE DOES NOT LIKE A SMOKEY TASTE IN THE FOOD. SO I WOULD GIVE THIS WOOD A TRY.

    I only use happy apple wood. The crabby apples scare me.
