  1. i'm new here and new to alsaka. we don't have any oak, pecan, apple or cherry trees here, all we have is adler.

    so back to the question.....i'm smoking some butts and yardbirds for my men today and all i have to use is adler. the smoke smeels pretty good not as strong as oak....how do y'all think this will taste?

    i know back home(GA) we would go about this in a different way but one does what the have to........

    awesome site![​IMG]

    but i just have to make sure.....i'm very proud of my BBQing skills, but being in a new area with out my normal woods i a little nervous!

    Alder will be great, just a milder smoke.

    alder is fine, it is milder and used alot here in washington as it's a pretty dominate tree here as well. I actually prefer it on some things such as canadian bacon..... [​IMG]

    Alder's good. MAinly used on fish because of it's lighter flavor, but will work on anything.

    Almost all of the Lil Chief bags of chips contain some alder. I suppose they do this to get more mileage out of the primary wood. They even sell just alder I believe.
