An old pear tree has finally had to come done. I am not hurting for smoking wood as I have enough apple for the next year or so. I would just hate to bonfire some good smoking wood. Rather than have a dinner I don't care for, I figured I would see if anybody else has tried pear wood.
Thank you

Agree with the others.. Fear no wood but conifers.. Burn it small and hot.

Pear is good. I have used it to smoke salmon and pork.

The best smoked salmon I ever made was using sappy wood from my neighbor's plum tree.

Anny Fruit Wood will do a good job. My brother gave me some real nice
Apricot wood. His neighbor lost a huge tree in a wind storm. I like it.

Thank you. I started out using mulberry, I have a large mulberry in the yard. It works, but out of all the wood I have used it is my least favorite. I am thrilled to have a pile of smoking wood. Thanks again.

Anyone hear of using "orange" wood from an orange tree? I asked my wife last week to pick me up some apple wood from Meijer and she said they had all kinds of fruit wood including orange.
