Seasoned hackberry should be great in a smoker, with a mild smoke similar to oak. If you can get a few splits to confirm, give it a try, but you'll most likely enjoy it.

Cheers!

Hackberry is common all over East and South texas. Always plenty for free - it's basically a giant weed and it breaks easily (limbs fall of, trunks, snap, etc.)

I like existing trees for their shade but wouldn't plant one. They do that themselves.

Nothing bad about the wood; it just burns too fast and hot to control the fire like you can with red oak, hickory, pecan, etc.

I'll second the fact that it burns hot and fast.

Tell me about it. I have about 20 of them on my property. I cut down 4 of them because I had a few fall almost on the house. I have a huge pile of the wood and I use it to build fires to sit around and BS. I never thought about ising it to cook with.
