I went to Pathmark today to grab a few things and pick up something that I saw there a week or so ago. Some white birch wood. I've never smoked with birch. According to the woods for smoking sticky thread birch is a medium-hard wood with a flavor similar to maple. Good with pork and poultry. Never smoked with maple either. Would this be (in your opinions) worth grabbing more of? They have plenty so I'm not worried about it disappearing on me, it cost $6.99. Going to remove the bark (I hear it can be rather bitter) and smoke with it sometime probably this weekend and see how things turn out but I was also curious as to whether any of you have used birch before and what you thought of it.
