Can you smoke?
Can you smoke meat with "post oak wood?"

jrn 02-03-2013 05:57 PM

Absolutely!! Seems to be very popular in Texas. I use it all the time.

if the wood was treated in any way to be used for posts then no I wouldn't use it for smoking.

Post oak can be a variety of oak (super good) or oak used for fence posts, maybe treated (very bad). Couple years ago I saw a guy with a roadside BBQ trailer with a giant pile of used creosote fence posts & boards for fuel. I didn't stop for a sammich. Seriously though, post oak (the variety) is really good for beef & brisket.

That's what I use 98% of the time.

No, no no. :laugh:

Post oak is a variety of oak tree. It is very common in the South. It likes warmer, humid climates.

It is fine to smoke with. Up here in North Texas, we have live oaks and red oaks, mostly. They are all oaks.

Yes you can! Popular smoking wood in Texas.

Thanks y'all. I'm gonna give it a go (unless he shows up with some fence posts). Then, I'll use one to whop him
on the side of the head! Haha!

Only if you send me some :)

Yeah it's called post oak because it's commonly used for posts. Very durable when in contact with the ground. Straight and slow to rot.
