    Hi all,

    I've got several ~10# bags of well-cured wood chunks for which I'd love to find a good home. I've gotten rid of my smaller cookers, so these chunks are no longer ideal for my use. But for the right person, this would be a great and ample supply of cooking wood. Here's the approximate inventory . . .

    9 bags Hickory
    6 bags Cherry
    4 bags Maple
    3 bags Alder

    I'm happy to give it all away to a BBQ-loving LTH'er who's able to pick it up in southern Lake County. To minimize the logistical ballet, I greatly prefer to get it all in the hands of one person. If you're interested, please post here or PM me.

    Thanks,

    The lumber has been spoken for. I'm thrilled that it's going to a good LTH home and an avid BBQ enthusiast.

    Thanks, for looking.

    I've never used alder wood for smoking. What kind of flavor does it give the meat?

    I've never used it on meat, per se. It's pretty mild, with a slightly sweet note. I used it mainly on cold-smoked salmon, but eventually realized that I preferred apple, which also happens to be much more readily available.

    Alder is pretty much the standard wood for smoking salmon up in the Vancouver area. So salmon and alder is definitely a good pairing.
