Hey all. I've been BBQ'in and Smokin' for years now. It seemed that every time I typed a question into Google regarding a BBQ problem I was having, the Smoke Ring forums popped up and you guys were giving good and steady advice. So why not join, right??

I'm also joining to get some "professional" BBQ'ers advice on a topic that's near and dear to my heart. I have recently returned to our family Peach and Pecan farm to continue farming....my cousin and I are 5th generation GA peach farmers and are pretty excited about the opportunity. Being as such, I've been smoking with Peach wood for years and swear by it. Pecan seems more readily available. Peach wood seems impossible to get.

What do you guys and gals think? Should I make this source of Peach wood available to the BBQ'in public? Chips and chunks? Is there any interest in Peach wood for smokers? I'm sold but it might be because I've got Peach juice runnin' in my veins. Thanks for any feedback you provide! Glad to be here.

Welcome to the ring Dr. Peachgood, looking forward to seeing some pics of your cooks. Smile I wish I had more of a fruit wood selection around here, the most exotic thing I might come up with would be Bradford pear or Mulberry, I am sure people in your proximity would enjoy some peach flavor in there cooks from time to time.

We had peach trees and pear trees growing around our house here in North Florida and anytime we got in trouble, thats what was used... one of those limbs to get our attention. Personally, I'm not interested at all... Ha!Ha! Welcome to the smoke ring and good luck! Smile

Welcome Dr Peachgood,

Its cool to hear there are still mulitple generations farming the same land. My two cents is it doesn't cost much to throw up a website advertising your peach wood to Q'ers...give it a try. This forum will give you more exposure which is good. Best of luck.

Welcome aboard Dr. Peachgood. Might be worth a road trip to pic up some wood from you one day. I am guessing south and/or west GA?
