    Is it okay to use mulberry for smoking food? My buddy has a tree he is about to cut down, and i want to know if i should score some free wood.

    nevermind, i learned to use the search button and found that it reminds people of apple.

    Now, do i have to age it or can i use it now? He cut it down one week ago

    Ummm, idk why not. Its a fruit bearing tree, and most fruit bearing trees make good smoking woods

    I use it all the time. It has a different look when its done and ashes, kinda white powdery,gotta watch it if its windy, it can (the ashes) float around a bit.It dries pretty quick too if you can keep it out of the rain/snow.
