if the wood was treated in any way to be used for posts then no I wouldn't use it for smoking.

Post oak can be a variety of oak (super good) or oak used for fence posts, maybe treated (very bad). Couple years ago I saw a guy with a roadside BBQ trailer with a giant pile of used creosote fence posts & boards for fuel. I didn't stop for a sammich. Seriously though, post oak (the variety) is really good for beef & brisket.

No, no no.

Post oak is a variety of oak tree. It is very common in the South. It likes warmer, humid climates.

It is fine to smoke with. Up here in North Texas, we have live oaks and red oaks, mostly. They are all oaks.

Yeah it's called post oak because it's commonly used for posts. Very durable when in contact with the ground. Straight and slow to rot.
