Pecan Wood?
« on: January 28, 2016, 09:10:58 AM »
Hello all,

I got a huge bag of pecan wood for smoking last night at Walmart for $4.50.  First off, if this is your thing, you may want to check it out.  Secondly, how do you all feel about pecan?  What is good with?  Let me know!

Pecan is good for nearly every type of cooks. It's mild and depending on what I'm cooking, I would use it with another type of wood. I usually mix pecan with hickory for pork. For poultry I would mix pecan and a fruit wood such as apple or peach. Or pecan alone is good by itself.

I actually prefer Pecan for cheese, pork & poultry. Nice mellow smoke. Actually, for pork, it works well in combination with Applewood.
Chunks or chips?  How many pounds?

Milder cousin of hickory, which, personally, I think is kinda sharp-edged.....will go nice with just about anything.........

Here's a bit of discussion......

I do a lot of smoking with a 50/50 combo of pecan and apple.  Use this combo with all pork smokes.  I'm going to have to check out my local walmart!  @crowderjd -  Was this chips or chunks and how heavy of a bag?  I used to use chips but use only chunks now.  I usually order the weber brand on amazon....5lb bag for $8.97 for either pecan or apple, hickory (I don't really use) and cherry (good for turkeys and other whole birds) are $6.97.

Interesting topic. I recently bought a bag of Weber chunks (Apple) and on the back of the bag was a little chart showing what the different woods pair well with. Pecan caught my eye was the one with the most choices, and was likely to be my next purchase so thanks for the tip! 

One thing I wanted to include in the same pic was the warning label right below the chart, anyone have any insight into this?

Oh great now another thing I gotta worry about.

I've got a lot of applewood with bark still on it (they are tree branches I cut). What about bark?
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

Apparently, anything that is good, is not good for you in the state of CA.  Cow farts lead to cancer in CA.
