    What type of wood?

    I’m always scouting wood. Found some today. I’m getting better at deciphering wood I can smoke with, and what type I can’t.

    I think I know what type of wood this is, but I’d like your take on it too.

    what type of wood do you think it is?

    Poplar maybe. Bark is not thick enough I think to be white oak.

      Boy, without the context of leaf and intact tree shape it's hard to say. That could be apple or peach or cherry/black cherry, could be aspen or popple, or poplar. Sorry I can't help you.

        Huskee, why did you list them in order of what type of pies you would like from best to inedible?

      It resembles a young oak of some type. I had a few small white oaks on my property line that I cut down a couple years ago. The bark is really thin like that when they are less than 12" in diameter and immature.

        I’m thinking oak. It’s heavy wood.

      The funny thing is it looks just like two stacks I have in the back - my oak for smoking and my wife's tulip tree which is for the fireplace. The difference is in the weight. The oak is heavier than the tulip. How is the guess?

        It’s heavy as it should be for oak.

      Young oak (but what species?) and young apple (but what species?) can look the same really, and both are very heavy. Very hard to tell. I bet it will cook your BBQ very nicely though.

        Northern oak. I say this because it is on an asphalt driveway with a Tall Fescue type "cool season" turf grass. This should be a dead giveaway. I mean who has asphalt driveways.
