Hi, my name is Don, and I live on the West Side. I am somewhat new to smoking. I have been able to make a pretty good pulled pork, but have had trouble with ribs. I joined SmokingMeat a few months ago, and have been reading the newsletters. I've found a lot of valuable and informative articles, but only after purchasing the recipes did I find out that there is a membrane on the bone side of ribs that has to be removed. I am now at the bottom half of 2 hours in on smoking a rack and can't wait to try out this set! I mostly use apple, but have used maple. Can anyone tell me if mulberry wood can be used? The site says any fruit wood, but I'm not sure if some different types would not be so tasty. I use an offset that my dad built, with the hotbox on the left. I'm hoping to learn a lot about smoking so I can impress people at work.
Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything.

Hello Don and welcome to SMF! You'll find this is a friendly place to learn and share. We enjoy helping and encouraging one another, so just ask when you have questions...someone here will surely be able to help. Good luck with those ribs! How about showing us a little Qview? (Pics of your food, your cooks, your gear, etc.).

I've never cooked with mulberry wood, but I'd bet it's good.
