Chestnut wood

Anyone ever tried using chestnut wood? The mother in law had a tree cut down and they sawed it up instead of leaving it in logs for furniture wood. I thought it may be similar to pecan.. although I have never used pecan but I know some do.

Thanks

Gary

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

I have heard it's good. I wish I could try some. Let us know how it is. I would be tempted to have it milled for furniture making myself, if it were a big enough tree.

I agree.. but the idiot that cut it down sawed it up into chunks.

I haven't ever used it, but any wood from a tree that produces fruit or nuts is generally good for smoking.

You don't want to use any of it. Put it by the side of the house and I'll stop by and remove it for you.

Good Q!

Jack
