Question Black Walnut?

Is Black walnut a good wood to use for cold smoking? What kind of flavor profile does it give if it is good to use?

Very strong, use it sparingly. I personally don't use it, but thats just me, you may like
it.

On another note, I like burning walnut in the open fire pit, nice fire and smells good.

I've never tried it for cold smoking, but I did throw a chunk on the UDS once when I was doing a couple of briskets. It was good, but is definitely strong. I wouldn't recommend it for anything mild.

I tried it hot smoking some Hog ribs - mistake, it made them taste bitter to me.

But, it sure do burn 'nice' in the wood stove for heat.

Walnut has an intense flavor, and yes it can be bitter if too much is used, but can still be used for smoking meats. You should mix a small amount with other wood(s). When we have used it for brisket our mix ratio is around 10% walnut and 90% other wood(s)
