Apple wood

The owner of a local orchard called tonight. He has 3 skids of apple wood set aside for me (1 1/2 cords) and has maybe 10 more to unload. Now I can stop burning pressure treated wood and see if there is a taste difference.
There is another orchard down the road that should be done cutting soon and maybe I'll snag some of his wood too.

I just ground up a wheelbarrow full of apple from a small tree in my yard. I have used it twice. It seems to be very mild and subtle compared to the hickory.

OMG! Orange is awesome. My Dad (Trekr on the board) brings me up cut up limbs from Naples, FL. It's strong. If smoking, be careful. It's really heavy (like mesq). It's great on beef and chicken....even burgers. (I add a small chunk even when grilling)
