Never even heard of it so I'm no help here.

But in my experience berry trees are a good wood to cook with. I've used mulberry before and was quite happy with it

Seems I've cut hackberry when I lived in Illinois. Don't remember much about it.
I'm sure I used it for home heating fuel and open fire cooking.
Don't think I ever smoked with it.

I found this link, for what ever it's worth.

Hackberry is a fairly common tree in the south. If it was good to cook with I would think folks would be using it but I've never heard of that. My customers saw it and it is used for interior parts of stuffed furniture.

Here's a link that should help...

Sounds like a winner. I would do a trial run to be sure, but it sounds promising. It will probably take a while to season, as it's a dense wood.

and willow. The ornamental varieties of fruit trees (i.e. pear, cherry, apple, etc.) are also suitable for smoking."

I like hackberry. It's one of the few woods I have around here. It's best when seasoned, I let it go for 9 months to a year.
Good luck with it Paul!

Thx Jen shoot girl if it is good for you then i am in... I have a huge hackberry and water oak tree to cut behind our shop... Me and Tyler have decided tobuild a 45x70 shop behind our current shop... He was going to try and buy a place... But i told him i thought it was a bad idea.. Seen to many people jump the gun and fail... I told him build one now... That will virtually be paid for... And put the money in his pocket.... He saw the light... So i will have enough wood for a while... Especially since i only own a webber kettle..... That is sad.. We build cookers and i am down to a kettle... But when the new place is done.. Hopefully 2 months.. Then i can start my build... As i find time....


Thx everyone for the links and comments.. If i am still around in 2 years at least you know the hackberry did not make me bite tha dust
