Anyone here ever use shagbark hickory for smoking, grilling...If so, what you think about it?
Shadbark Hickory is fine for smoking. Has almost identical flavor to regular hickory.

Interesting. I thought hickory was hickory no matter what variety
All the hickory trees have the same flavor to me.
Shagbark hickory is fine for smoking.
Pecan is a Hickory . but shag bark is ideal for most anything , I use a lot of Hickory:
Had a whole cord in there last August , need more and some more Cherry.
The tree may be different, but the flavour will be very similar.
Shagbark is wonderful stuff, I think Swamp is a bit better.
They're the only two I have to choose from on my place, both are in short supply, but thank God there's more Swamp because I need the Shagbark for the nuts.
Tons of Cherry and Maple.
