    I went out today to cut down my sister-n-law neighbors -apple- tree. Well, when I got there it was a plum tree. LOL. Anyhow, has anyone ever used plum? If so, what foods and how did they turn out?

    Thanx gang,

    I've used plum on pork spares and yard birds...it's a great sweet smoke wood for those milder flavored meats. It would be good for pork loins, center-cut chops and shoulder steaks, as well.

    Thanx for the replies. It sounds as though I've made a good catch here.

    I got a bunch from my brother in law. 

    I find it similar to cherry.

    Plum is a very good wood to smoke with!.  Similar to Apple, but not a sweet as Peach.  I have a some in Sawdust form and it's  very nice.

    Next time you cut down a tree, fill the oil reservoir with vegetable oil and you can use the chainsaw chips for smoking too.

    ENJOY!

    Good Score.
     
  7. I have been using plum since last winter when an ice storm wrecked my plum tree. I have used it for pork butt, salmon and cheese. I have also taken limbs on my table saw to make saw dust for my cold smoker, that too has worked well for me.

    good luck
