Pear wood

A buddy of mine owns a tree service, I got some hickory, apple, & pear wood from him. I've heard talk of fruitwood, but I don't think I've heard pear mentioned. Is it good to smoke with?

Yes. Pear and all fruit wood is good to smoke with, they're very mild flavored woods.

I like it.

It's a bit milder than apple.
You can use the flowering types as well.

Around here bradford is REAL easy to come by.
