    A recent wind storm here took down some branches that I volunteered to cut up. I did a search on here but didn't find a definitive answer as to if this is good to smoke with. Any experience with chestnut?

    Or should I just use it in the fire pit?

    I agree , you could do a test to check it... when cured , burn a little and smell the smoke ; if like Black Walnut, it will be very astringent to the nose .
  4. I believe that chestnut is a member of the hickory family.....
  5. oak family.they say its just as good as hickory. light, sweet and nutty flavor is hows its been described to me.
