BayoustateBBQ......I think you have it!!! Dad had a plum tree in the backyard....it threw fruit one year and that was it I think. He wanted to get rid of it and I recal him talking about it. It makes sense that this is what I now have....took a look at a few google images of plum tree bark and it looks bang on. Great help here and I am happy to have some fruit wood. The reddish interior made me think fruitwood but not remembering that plum tree I was stumped. Many thanks indeed. One thing though - This wood was cut down about 3 years ago....Is it overseasoned now???
Smokin Patriots.....I am like a kid after Xmas....a kid who wishes a few more instructions were included with the toy but still having alot of fun.
