Anyone used blackberry wood for smoking,If you have was it good,light or heavy flavor?

While I can't say for sure if he meant that or not, but Blackberry/Blueberry has been tried by some. As well as mulberry. 

If it's a harder wood, it's probably got a little stronger flavor profile than mulberry. Mulberry is light, and good with sausage, chicken, etc. 

I read on another forum, a guy tried and said it had a mild/mild-heavy flavor. He mentioned it was similar to a light "grape". 
I have domesticated blackberries and I do not allow the vines that bore fruit last year to hang around the garden.  They get cut out after harvest and burned.  We have a problem with double blossom disease and it is controlled by removing the old vines as soon as possible.  That is the reason I have never tried them in a smoke.

So if you use that wood do you get email all the time you are smoking
Alblancher,I have thornless blackberries. I just cut away last year canes,that's what I'm thinking about using.The  base of the largest canes are about 2 to 3in in diameter. When I use then I'll post the results. Thanks to all.
So, has anyone tried this yet? This post is from a few years ago. I just cut down a plant that had a lot of stray, dead canes. I would love to try them in the smoker after a little seasoning time. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
