    If it is red maple or sugar maple, it smells very good. It sweetens meat when cooking or smoking over it. It is a very good wood for pork or beef. We cook steaks over the fire pit at the cabin and it is a treat to cook it with maple.

    If you have big leaf maple, I have used it for chicken and salmon... It is mild....    Dave
