Wood for Smoking

8 posts in this topic

I'm not sure if this is the place to put this, but i recently cut down a Crab apple tree in my yard, and have it stacked right now in the garage. Im wondering if this is used for smoking, and if so i'd be looking to sell it, but dont really know where to start price-wise? Anyone have any idea first of all if it is used for smoking, and second what a price would be? Im not looking to get rich :D, just get rid of it and make a little something for the work. Its in logs 18"-24" long right now ranging from 3" diameter to 10" diameter. Also 4 logs 10" in diameter approx 3' long

If you can find anyone who is willing to give you anything for it, take it.

I have beautiful Black Walnut cut into 8 ft. logs that no one wants to buy and it's worth something.

hmm. see i have no idea what my pile is worth. I was told not to burn it in my Fireplace because of creasote. I'm hoping someone will come along and throw a few dollars and take the pile off my hands.

I can get bags full of them. I had a Red Squirrel collect about 50lbs. for me this fall and stash them in my barn!

I don't like hulling them or cracking them--too much time I don't have these days.

Might be worth something for the guys with a 2 chamber smoker with a fire box. Normally they'd use maple. If you put it out on the curb with a free sign you might get it hauled away, otherwise IMO there is not much of a commodity for it.

Apple wood is good for smoking, but it's kind of getting late in the season for that. Maybe try C/list?

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
