Anybody have any opinions on it? I have a cottonwood forest behind my house, so, from a supply standpoint it looks really, really appealing. You know, walk back there, find a few large downed pieces, throw them over the clear ditch and then over my fence. I've cooked with it over an open pit before and with good results, but you can get away with things over an open fire that can ruin the taste in a smoker or even make you sick. I hear that it produces a very light flavor, which would make sense to me.
