  1. Does anyone know if pecan wood is an issue for someone with tree nut allergies?

    I dont know, but my son is allergic to peanuts and we stay away from anything peanut related.

    Check with her allergist.

    Best info I can give.
     
  3. You can do a search on here about allergies. I searched a while back and came to the conclusion of not using nut tree when I cook for someone I know is allergic. I also cook chicken with pistachio shells on the fire, but not if any allergies coming by.

    On a related topic.....can anyone tell me, with first hand knowledge, if using pecan wood for smoking would effect a nut allergy?

    I would love to use some pecan for smoking, but, also would hate to croak the neighbors. (Well, most of them).

    Thanks

    Do you really want to chance it? Just use another wood.
