Hope it is as I will have a nice source for smoking on the grill.
That looks a little different than my pecan trees, apparently there are 60 plus types of pecan trees each with geographical variations. I think that is pecan.
Yep thats a pecan tree! Grew up at a pecan farm defiantly a pecan wood
I added another pic that shows the wood grain.....And welcome to the site.
Wow, it never occured to me to use wood from any of the 30 pecan trees I have to smoke with...gotta give that a try!!
Heard its one of the best & goes with anything grillable.
Thanks! Yes that pecan wood is great to cook with or smoke give it a very unique flavor,i like to use pecan and mesquite myself. Growing up in texas pecan wood was abundant and used quite a bit for grilling
Pecan wood? Yep!
So I have a half and half live healthy trees and trees that are dying....would using the dying trees not work as well for grilling with? Do you just throw the wood in with the charcoal? I don't have a smoker as of yet...
Usually dead pecan works great. I've seen it full of disease - I'd pass on smoking with that.
I chip pecan down to little chunks and throw that on the hot grates of my gas grill. The wood burns and gives off a lot of smoke. I don't pre-soak the wood in water either.
I actually have to get the local university horticulturist out to look at the deadish trees. They were supposedly all in full bloom last summer, and the property owners think they were killed by a local crop duster....
Nah. Pecans are nuts.
What you're showing is just a couple of sticks.
I see what you did there....
And here's some apple that won't be ready till next summer.
That apple should add some good flavor to burgers and steaks!!
(Maybe even some porky pig chops!!)
I have never smoked with pecan till tonight.
1" thick porterhouse steaks and they were very good....
BUT....Pecan definately has a distinct flavor vs hickory,maple, oak, cherry, etc.
I liked it, but think it would be ideal for a boston butt or any piggy meat.
Yes! Will definately do some apple smoked piggy next year.
