I recently bought some wood chunks and got a pound of plum.

I was thinking about using it to smoke a turkey breast this weekend.

I also have apple so I am undecided which to use.

I think I have heard that plum wood is good with turkey?

Has anyone done it? I figure I might go with the plum just to try it. Got to use it for something :D

Thanks

I have not, but at the same time, I have always paired other fruit woods (apple, pear, cherry) with turkey with great results.

This was in the "Guide" in Dutch's post from the top of this forum:

SWEET FRUIT WOODS - APRICOT, PLUM, PEACH, NECTARINE - Great on most white or pink meats, including chicken, turkey, pork and fish. The flavor is milder and sweeter than hickory.

Doug,

lately I have only used plum on everything. why, because my parents had me cut down a plum tree in their yard early this summer. Since it's dried out a bit and has been perfect on everything, and it's FREE. It's not nearly as strong as hickory or mesquite, and it's the only fruit wood I've used so I don't know how it stacks up against cherry and so on. But it has worked wonders for me. I haven't done turkey but chickens have turned out great so I say go for it!
