Default Crabapple Wood? OK or Not OK to use when Smoking

I just picked up some crabapple wood from my neighbor who was cutting the tree down.

Is it worth the effort to cut & dry the wood for future smokings?

We really enjoy doing ribs, brisket & pork shoulder.

Thanks in advance for your feedback

Glen

It has bee u sed. Rule of thumb is any fruit bearing or nut bearing tree is
good. Take a sliver and light it. Once it is burning, blow it out and
sniff the smoke. It should smell sweet enough to eat.

I've been using crab apple wood for a couple of years with no ill effects.

IMO, It's nigh impossible to differentiate any difference between crab apple
and eating apple wood.

I bet a lot of people may disagree with that

So you're saying it tastes the same to smoke with crabapple as it does to
eat regular apple wood? I guess I could try it but doesn't the bark get
stuck between your teeth?

It is absolutely worth the effort. Crabapple wood is one of my
favourites. Take all you can.
