    This, I do believe is the site I've been looking for! I'm just an amateur but I been at it for about 40 years, man and boy. Remember grilling half chickens for the 4th of July (my birthday) for the family when I was about 10. Did a lot of campfire cooking from there. Got interested in BBQ (smokin') when I lived in an apartment up in Nebraska--smokin' and apartment livin' just don't work well. Moved back to KC area and been smokin' ever since. Just a Weber kettle but I can make the meat fall off the rib bones. Like to play with different smokewoods. I'm a cabinetmaker so I bring home fall-offs from different woods to play with. And I like to garden so there's tree-trimmins from the fruit trees--peach prunings rank right up there with pine scraps on the list of things NOT to smoke with. As a family we took up camping last year so I'm back to playing with open fires and have recently acquired a Dutch oven. Lookin' forward to learnin' a lot here.

    Happy New Year,

    Tom

    Welcome! I did not know that peach was bad. I've been thinking about getting some since it is readily available in the "Peach State". There's a lot of apple and pecan too. Pecan is one of my favorites.

    I have several peach trees, so I've used it. I will say that when I first tried it, it wasn't well seasoned, and tasted bitter. However, if seasoned for at least 6 months, it has a nice mild smoke.

    I'd say the Geek is on it - it has to be seasoned 6 months minimum.
