Default Mulberry for smoking?

I was reading an article in Time Out Chicago last night, and one of our long time pitmasters, who uses the Chciago-style aquarium smoker, talked about using mulberry as his main source for smoke. He said that hickory can get too expensive. Has anyone every used mulberry before? This isn't a wood that I've ever read about anyone using, until last night.

Mulberry is everywhere in the Chicagoland area. CHit grows like weeds and smells like cotton candy when burned.

Growing up, we'd have mulberry trees all over the place. I like mulberries, so it didn't bother me any

Gives food a root beer smoked flavor. I prefer my cherry over the mulberry. I think it's important that if your gonna use mulberry, use the wood that was from a fruit bearing tree.

Yep. We had a bird drop a mulberry seed in its chit and we had a tree the next day.

OK. I exaggerate a little

I use it, but as an accent wood. As Steph mentioned, the smoke is very sweet and I think it would be too much as the only wood.

I mixed some with hickory and had some awesome pork out of it. I am just waiting for the rest of the tree to come down so I can have some more.
