I have some well seasoned birch and I love the stuff. I think it's paper birch. I remove all the bark though because it's so oily and gives off nasty black smoke.

The taste of the birch smoke I find to be a bit 'dry' and salty not really fruity or nutty.

I did a butt + brisket cook recently mixed birch and mesquite. umm umm good. I mix it with apple or maple too.

Hate to agree with Greg, but he is right in my book on this one! And yes, go light. Lightly smoked is better tasting than overly smoked!
