Living in self-imposed exile in Cannuckistan, spending my time on a never ending search in the boreal forest for pieces of hardwood. Alas! none to be found. Has anyone ever used poplar with any success? UDS, Gr8outdoors smoky mountain,Napoleon kettle.

Welcome expatpig. Please, DON'T use Poplar. VERY bad. It's like pine, but
different....

My suggestion is that if you can't find oak, hickory, a fruit tree like apple or peach,
perhaps just purchase the wood in chunks online. Take a look at: doitbest.com

They'll send the wood with no shipping charges to your local hardware store.


Best of luck, and welcome.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

They have maple, but I live too far north, the only fruit trees seem to be crabapple and they're in my neighbors yards. I'm going to have to order online, I was thinking of smokinlicious, unless.... let's see,..if everyone would send me just one stick of hickory or cherry...

Crabapple is fine , but don't cut the neighbors tree down;_). If u can't find any wood a good lump charcoal will give a pretty good taste
