Has anyone used mulberry wood and if so how well does it work.
I have not used it personally, but know people that have that love it. One even calls it his "top secret" wood. LOL
Woodn't even know where to find it!
Me neither, but the guys that I know use it are from Ohio and have no trouble getting it there from what I am told.
Perhaps it is available in my neck of the woods ... not far from Ohio!
3 Types of Mulberry listed on this site........all mention Ohio.......hmmmm.....what is so special about Ohio? LOL
Good site for tree info as well.
I figured out why Ohio comes up.....it is an Ohio site. LOL Another mystery solved.........

I have a fruitless mulberry in my yard (looks like it may be the white). I need to prune it this fall so I think I'll dry some of it out this winter and try it. Thanks for the idea.
I find it in the corner of my front yard, I cut it, it keeps coming back. Birds eat the berries, poop on my truck.
We have them in pennsylvania........must have the same birds two.
I have more mulberry than I would like. Have tried it. It is a very mild smoke, nearer to pecan or peach than to mesquite. One caution....make sure it is dry! It is quite bitter until very dry.
I totally agre with greazy, one of the only fruit woods i will let dry out before useing, excellent smoke when dried.
I've used it - it's similar too apple. Make sure it's really dry though it leaves a sticky creaosol. Nice light yet sweet smoke.
figures.......i have a neighbor cross the street who just trimmed BUNCHES of mulberry, the fruit bearing kind..........but its fresh...........
Dude, you get the beer, i got the saw, midnite tree extraction?
heheh.......limbs already cut down.........but its green.......won't be werth acrap for at least a year
