    Hello everyone,

    My father-in-law told me he cut down an oriental apple tree and wanted to know if I wanted any of the wood.

    Can I use this to smoke with?

    Also I have a Japanese plum tree (I think :roll: ) in my front yard. I need to make sure what it is, but if so, would I be able to use that as well???

    Something to keep in mind when I am pruning anyway.

    I am under the impression that all apple woods are very similar and excellent to cook with. I have used crabapple and was very happy with the results.

    No don't use that wood, bundle it all up and ship to Icemn62's home. I will make the ultimate sacrifice and burn it, to make sure it is okay.

    Just kidding That should be okay for your use.

    Any of the fruit trees and their ornamental (flowering) variations can be used for smoking.
