Smile Pecan Hulls for smoking...

Tonights the night for my first time smoking with pecan hulls.

Walmart had spare ribs (no foil, ever!) for $1.88/LB, plus I grabbed some chicken wings to boot.

Gonna start cooking about Midnight, while I mow the yard! I'm also gonna do a third seasoning to my cast iron dutch oven tonight. Got a busy night ahead of me!

I never have. I suspect that when the oil in the nut is released it would get interesting for a moment.

I use pecan hulls in the gasser, and the firebox of the bandera now and then. In the smoker I add them to the end of the firebnox furthest from the smoke chamber. Usually for chicken and pork. I've never had anything but white smoke from them, but no ill effects, so take that into consideration before using.

I have tried that on several occasions--don't bother. The oil from the pecan meat gives off a very nasty smoke when it burns, and it will burn. Nothing like sweet blue, more like bitter black

Came out good, a light flavor compared to hickory or oak. I'm gonna do smoked meatloaf with what I have left over. I will save up more shell for future cooking!

Good deal! So how many pounds of hulls did you use for how many hours cooking?
