Default Mulberry wood for smoking

Today I decide to cut up some of the Mulberry wood to use in the weber. The smell was very sweet I cooked a chicken on it turned out great. I like the flavor of the Mulberry better than the Hickory that I've been using. I have a lot of it on hand as a storm downed one of the large branches.

I didn't have my camera so no pics and no pics means this really didn't happen. Has any of you used Mulberry wood? I think this will be my first choice for yardbird and fish.

I haven't, but if you lived here, I'd let you cut down the mulberry tree in my back yard.

I like it as an accent wood along with some apple or cherry.

Don't burn it in the fireplace.........snap, crackle, pop all over the place. They actually banned the planting of any new MB trees here a few years ago cause of the problems it causes for asthmatics and allergy sufferers. They are all over the place. It good stuff. Just as good are the berries!

In my neck of the woods Mulberry seems to grow like a weed. All of my neighbors have at least one red Mulberry tree. We had two 50+ foot trees felled two years ago that I use for smoking. To me it has a sweet, maple like flavor which is great with pork and chicken.

Any Chicago Bros got any chunks of hickory,pecan or oak to trade for Mulberry?

Are you burning the wood green? Does green vs dry matter when smoking?

Mine has been dried for about 2 yrs. Don't know about burning green, I would think that it would be real smoky and not a pleasant taste.

I'm sure someone more experienced can let ya know.
