My plum tree fell over in the ice storm two weeks ago. Up until someone mentioned that it is a great sweet wood for smoking I have had no interest in smoking anything. But now I'm getting excited and have been lurking through these threads all day and have come to the conclusion that I need a smoker (craig's list here I come) and some recipes (they seem to be plentiful). Being unemployed at the moment I'm hoping to sell most of the tree to buy the smoker but I do not know how to do that yet, but I figure the buy/sell forum can teach me what i need to knoe there. My confusion is that all the posts singing the praises of plum wood are talking about pork, fish and birds but nothing in the red meat category. I'm a big red meat fan and am starting to wonder if I'm running in the wrong direction here. I'm sure that as a noob I'll make lots of mistakes so any words of wisdom regarding dealing with this wood would be greatly appreciated.
