Would like to know if anyone has ever used Pear wood or Peach wood for cooking meat. I have a lot of it along with Apple from trimming trees and don't know what to do with it. I know Apple is good for smoking but don't know about Pear and Peach.
Ralph (RJ3) cooks almost exclusively on wood. I'm not even sure he owns a stove, for that matter. he might could give you guidance. We don't havemnay peaches this far North, but i have cooked or smoked with apple, plumb, cherry...etc. Seems like fruit wood is pretty well suited to the task. Of course, i have no experience with citrus, palm, and otehr tropical types.
We use all kinds of wood including that from our fruit trees. Super way to cook all sorts of food. We use them all year round. We sat around the fireplace when it freezing and snowing heavily...good times! No bee hives allowed near the outdoor fires.
I'd love the chance to try fruit tree wood. We cook mostly with red or black oak ... got acres and acres of it. We love the taste. But hickory would be even better ... there's some around but it doesn't get blown down as often.
I pity the fools who think a gas grill is any good for cooking. Or even those who think charcoal briquettes are good ... these days they are 50% anthracite coal.
