*DO NOT USE any wood from pine, fir, spruce, redwood (the conifer, not red oak), cedar, elm, eucalyptus, sycamore, liquid amber, cypress, elderberry, or sweet gum trees.
*Cooking salmon on a cedar plank is not the same as using chunks of cedar to smoke meat as the plank doesn’t inundate the fish with smoke for hours at a time.
*Never use lumber scraps, either new or used. First, you cannot know for sure what kind of wood it is. Second, the wood may have been chemically treated. Third, you have no idea where the wood may have been or how it was used.
*Never use any wood that has been painted or stained. Do not use wood scraps from a furniture manufacturer as this wood is often chemically treated.
Just because we've done some research and found a ton of smoking options, does not mean we carry all off these, which would be nice.
We ALWAYS have at least 20 types of wood in stock and regularly carry exotic and unique woods.
