I bought some "Osage Orange" pellets for my FEC a few years ago.
Thought they were from an "Orange" tree, which is really great smoke wood.

Did some chicken and ribs.
Turned the bones a gloss black like I have never seen before.
Actually, some presentation possibilites there--but really different.

Taste was bitter.
No other way to describe it.
It is hard to get strong smoke flavor in an pellet pooper, so that was a surprise.

I threw away about $30 worth of pellets which I have never done before or since.
Not impressed.

But, there are folks that love it.

Test it on some chicken since poultry absorbs flavors so easily and make up your own mind.

Let us know.
