    Vine maple

    Recently moved back north, in the foothills of the coast range. Sitting in the middle of a forest, i see lots of vine maple and alder on the property. I can remember my grandpa telling me the vine maple was his smoke of choice for steelhead. I even have his recipe. Question is,,, wet or seasoned? Bark on or off?

    Seasoned for definitely sure. I think purists would say to take the bark off, but I don't take the bark off the wood I use for smoking.

      Definitely seasoned. The bark will easily come off properly seasoned maple logs, in my experience. But being a smaller tree, I think the thinner bark (assuming it will tend to stay on) shouldn't be a problem.

        Seasoned, it should be ready in 4-5 months as I recall it is not very thick. If the bark comes of easily, ok, if not don't worry about it. As I recall vine maple bark isn't very thick.
