    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.

    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 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.
