    I have not used it personally, but know people that have that love it. One even calls it his "top secret" wood. LOL

    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.

    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. [​IMG]

    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'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.

    Any updates on this. I dropped some last year. Just got around to cutting in to shorter sections a month ago. Looks a little green yet. But been down for about 9 months.
