    You can grow Peppercorns in the States?
    If so, your Parents MUST live in a HOT area.
    That's wild man.
    I suppose - if it doesn't give off toxic smoke - which I wouldn't expect, it'd be great flavor !

    Good Luck

    I don't know if this is the tree you are asking about but, if it's a Brazilian Pepper then do NOT put it in a smoker. The sap is like poision ivy to some people. We have them all over my area of Florida, we are trying to get rid of them. Here's a link with a better explanation.
