Hello, My brother and I have been smoking hogs for years with various methods. We have generally always used Oak wood, but on occasion used Hickory, and a real good one is Orange (citrus) tree wood which gives a great flavor but alas all of the citrus business has moved further south of here now. We always knew to stay away from sap rich woods like pine unless you wanted your meat to taste like turpentine. But my question is, I have a continuing supply of hege wood that comes from Sweet Viburnum hedge. I've been hauling this stuff off for years and I wonder if one could actually barbeque with this wood. I've searched for info on any poisons that might be in the wood with no success. Does anyone know of this type of wood being used or any information at all on it ? Thanks to all replies.
