I see alot of references here in this forum as well as others that discuss NOT using cedar for smoking... But this seems very vague and unclear as there are numerous types of cedar ranging from hard to soft and since I just saw a bag of whiskey seasoned wood chips at Lowes that clearly ARE cedar ( I woodwork with alot of Western Red Cedar as well as Alaskan Yellow Cedar, and know the wood quite well ). The bag was clearly full of western red cedar chips and chunks! I get the fact that any resinous wood should NOT be used for smoking, so using western red cedar should NOT be an issue, since ALL the stuff I have worked with not resinous in nature. SO how about someone get some clarification on this forum as to the types of cedar that should be fine, based on the fact that Lowes is clearly selling cedar chips for smoking... and no the bag does NOT say for fish only.
