Ash is a hardwood. The problem is it does not bear a nut or fruit. I don't think I would use it myself.

It makes beautiful plywood.

Re: Ash smoking wood?

Have used Ash extensively in the offset log burning mode. Has good heat production and near neutral flavor/aroma. Works similar to hackberry in that it makes a good cheap base for more aromatic stuff in the offset configuration. Do not believe I would bother to use it as a flavoring wood on an R2D2 or similar contraption due to its blandness.

Is Ash wood good to smoke with?

If so, what flavor does it have? Strong, mild ect.

Saw a guy selling it on E-bay but I can get all the green and white ash I will ever need in 10 lifetimes around here.

Nice to see all of you again!!

Lots of heat production with Ash, great for the woodstove. Bet it would be great to make Lump out of.
