Bandit, thanks for posting that picture because it cleared up a begging question I have had for awhile.

Peach is my go to wood for just about everything except brisket. I have never thought of peach as very strong flavored wood. Could it be that the wood was rotten. From my experiences, peach is a very mild wood. JM2CW.

Smells like piss. LOL I swear, I want to build a fire in the back yard and try that. I bet it the smell is pretty dog-gone close!

Anyway, here are some pics of the wood. It does look like the chunks are from limbs; and bark is still on.

The bark will come off, but not very easy.

And I am wondering as others have mentioned, smoldering in a UDS might not be the best way to use this wood.

I am going to be doing a cook and will try on the UDS, but AFTER the charcoal and temps are leveled out.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for the replies and advice.

Looks like peach to me. Last time I bbq'd I used some peach from a local orchard. It did have a bit of a strong aroma to it, different than other fruit woods or hickory. The bbq came out pretty good though.

Nice pics Bandit. Really shows the difference.

I pretty much use peach wood for everything, unless I am cooking brisket, where I use pecan. I have never noticed any odd smells or odd tastes. I do occasionally mix it with apple, or cherry, and even a small piece of pecan. Still no odd taste or smells.

I have always felt that peach adds the hint of smoke I am looking for and lets the meat shine as well.

I get my peach wood from two places. First is the peach farm down the road, when they prune. The second is Fruitopia.
