I was in South Carolina 2 weeks ago, and talked to the pitmaster at a small restaurant that served up some pretty reasonable Q. He gets a pickup load of Hickory for $60, delivered! Wish I could find "local" woods that I could get on the cheap like that! :roll:
I was looking at the "approved" wood list and had a couple thoughts.
We all know oak is a popular wood. Any one thought of trying the scrub oak that can be found in abundance on the foothills?
The list mentions birch as being suitable for some meats. What about our quaking aspens? They are certainly part of the birch family.
Then I had a truly unique idea.
What about the sage brush from the desert? I've used the leaves as a sage substitute for doing a pitfire turkey, so I know they do have a distinct sagey flavor. I expect the wood would impart some of that sage flavor if burned.
Anyone else have other ideas for local to Utah wildwoods that could be gathered, with a proper permit of course? :roll:
