Default Bradford pear wood as smoke wood

I have a chance to get my hands on a fair amount of bradford pear wood that fell over in my brother's neighbor's yard. It's a non fruit bearing, but flowering tree. They are common in new housing because they flower and grow to shape very quickly, but they seldom live longer than 25 years, and just fall over.

It *is* a hardwood, so I can't assume it will be horrible... anyone used this wood before? I can probably salvage about a 55 gallon drum of fist sized hunks out of it...
