A friend form work put a large chunk of sassafras in my truck and told me to give it a try, he said he's been useing it for years and it's the only thing he'll use.
Has anyone tryed this ? it seem's like a nice hard wood and he gave me enough to last several years if it dosn't dry out to much.

"Also ELM and EUCALYPTUS wood is unsuitable for smoking, as is the wood from SASSAFRAS, SYCAMORE and LIQUID AMBER trees.
Here are some more woods that you should not to use for smoking:"

I knew without even looking that you were from Missouri. There has been some talk here about sassafras. Seems like I heard it was poison, but I guess your buddy isn't dead.
