    I just scored a nice load of english walnut and have a new load of oak comming next week, enough to last me the rest of this year and well into 2008, I fuel my smoker with nothing but wood, so far the walnut I've tried was very nice but I mix it with maple and oak, I might just grab all the walnut I can since it's free, it sure is pretty wood it's a damn shame someone knocked it down and left it lay the trunk was probally 40 inches across.

    walnut has a really strong flavor doesnt it?
    this reminds me of a chunk of walnut i found last winter on our hunting grounds, forgot to go back and get it.

    Nasty ? munches another boneless rib finger ........ Icky ? ,,,,, licks juice off fingers ,, Poison ? ,,,, reaches for another one ,, who cares !!! belchhhhhhhhhhhhhh .Remember I'm useing it for fuel not as a main smoking wood and I'm mixing it with maple and oak , I wouldn't recomend useing just the walnut it would be to strong.

    exactly... some say mesquite(skeet) is too strong... it's all personal preference....personally to me... it makes great guitar necks.... i've sen people burn up curly & bird'seye maple ... to me thatsa better fit for a luthier... just cause i know how expensive it is & building musical insturments- i know the true value...
