Hi all,
I have acess to a lot of orange wood for smoking here in Florida. Any words of wisdom concerning the use of this wood?
Thanks

Well, it's a fruit wood which is fairly mild when it comes to smoke. Orange, apple, cherry, grape wood, etc. are very good woods to use for smoke. Generally speaking, you can use a little more fruit wood than say, Hickory and even Oak. If you find you have too much down there, you can always PM me or any others here in the north to get rid of it!

Damn, I miss Florida this time of year!!

I like bananna wood. Can you use Durian wood, or does it stink ? What about strawberry wood? Kiwi?

Scrape off any of the usual fungus/moss growths on the bark first. Other than that you're good to go.
