Default Another "what kind of wood is this?" thread..

So, I got some free wood and am not sure what I have. Sample #1 might be maple because the leaves from this tree turned red in the fall. However, as you will see in the pic, it had a little "cocklebur" type pod attached to branches with leaves.

Sample #2's owner swears it is persimmon (sp?) and had a bright orange bark when cut. Thanks in advance for any help!

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
