Peach Wood!!!!
 
Today I found a great source for peach wood. A local peach farm (15min from my house) sells bundles for 5 dollars. Anyone use peach wood? What is your favorite meat to use peach on?

I love peach. I've used it with pork and chicken so far. I haven't tried turkey yet, and I want try it on beef, I just haven't had the chance to do that yet.

It's one of my favorite woods to use, it has a stronger flavor to me than what people say it has, and my peach wood is bone dry.

You can use peach in place of apple, great flavor...

After I bought my Lang I started researching the different types of wood available in my area. It turns out that there is a huge supply of peach wood and I thought I would give it a try. It is excellent on pork and turkey's. I think it's a little too sweet for beef. I now cook all of my ribs with peach.

I love using fruit wood, when I get it from an orchard I always spend a few minutes peeling the logs before burning them. I have no scientific proof or anything but I am always afraid of chemical buildup on the bark. That said my good BBQing, fish smoking mate has used it for 30+ years just like me without doing so and is still around with no problems. His kid has all 6 fingers where as mine only have 5.... he says it makes it easier for him to undo the oily sump plugs at the Jiffy Lube so he is more employable. My mate also makes good money selling his colestomy bags to the local dopegrowers as high powered "Man-ure" fertaliser so he knows a thing or 2 and is pretty smart ... sorry bin listening to Larry the Cable guy again:wink:

Git R Dun, but maybe peel it B4 using it just in case and make sure it is long time dry...

Muzza in Perth for a bit

Not if it's seasoned..... Peach is stronger than apple but milder than hickory, but produces a sweet smoke.

BRT1877, go by your local Academy to see if they have started to sell it in chunks/chips. Mine have along w/ some orange but I've not like that the couple of times I've used that on birds.

I've had no problems w/ peach on anything be it bird, pig or cow. It's now my main wood. I think it'd go best w/ pork/bird but still a good all around wood.

I sure would like to try it...I have heard a lot of good things...but it's difficult to find in the Lou.

I have used peach wood on all 4 comp meats, i really enjoyed it even on brisket! it gives an awesome smoke smell. I usually pair it with some pecan, at a 2:1 peach: pecan ratio.

I plan on doing the same. I just recently got 125lbs of fresh peach and 200lbs of pecan ready for the assassin.
