Our 70-something year old pink hawthorn dropped a couple of sizable branches in the last storm- and I'm a waste-not, want-not kinda gal. Back home, we smoked fish with just about any hardwoods around, but most of those were fruit woods, or alder...stuff here isn't quite as easy to be sure of! Does anyone know whether hawthorn wood is poisonous or unpleasant-tasting to smoke with? Just wondering whether to haul out the Saws-All and chunk those bad boys up, or not. Thanks, in advance, for your help, guys!
