Deke Posted June 17, 2020 Share Posted June 17, 2020 (edited) I'm new here so apologies if this is in the wrong forum. I just bought a Big Easy SRG and I have some questions regarding wood. I see there are some retailers online selling various types of wood that will yield different flavours. I have a reasonable sized garden and have access to ash, apple, birch, hazel, elder, hawthorn, and live close to communal woodland where other species are available for the taking (fallen branches I mean, I'd not cut them down myself). So my questions are: Are all these woods suitable for smoking or are there any I should steer clear of? Does the wood need to be seasoned before it is smoked (like you would for a log burner) or can I just go out, cut a branch off and run it through my garden chipper and load my smokebox with it? I ask this because wet unseasoned wood smokes like billy-o on a bonfire or log burner, so logic says it'll be OK if smoke is what you actually want. Or am I missing something? Many thanks in advance.
