How mild is maple wood?
Florida maple, to be specific.
I smoked a 7.3 pound butt last Saturday. It was in the smoke at 250 for 9 hours (yeah, it was being a little stubborn.)
It turned out okay, but really did not taste smoky at all. The only thing I can think of that might have been different is that I may have used a lot of maple.
I say "may have" because I have a stack of mixed wood (oak, hickory, and maple) - so I did not pay that much attention to which one I threw in over the course of the 9 hours.
So, is that a possible explanation... too much maple? (For the record - that maple really smells good when it's burning!)
