While Kelli was at BBQ Island (http://www.bbqislandinc.com/) in Tempe AZ, (my favorite store in the world!) she picked up a big bag of Pecan for me and a bag of Pistachio...
I'm intrigued by the pistachio...anyone ever used it?
Is it similar to other nut woods?

IDK, but I will anxiously await your review.... Sounds like a great thing to try with some pork steaks and chicken quarters, for some variety.:thumbs up:

Not sure if it's sticks or chunks...I'm thinking chunks. We might be able to work something out.

Searched for "pistachio smoking wood" and got a couple of hits on the forums for smoking with undyed pistachio shells and another that mentions it while implying that it is not suitable for cooking , the same post advises also not using the shells the shells for smoke.
:shrug:.
This guy cooked a steak with it, but doesn't say anything about flavor-

He also provides a link to a site that sells sticks and chunks.

Please post a picture so we can see what pistachio wood looks like, thanks.

Sorry I have it, but haven't used it yet...I'm in Comp Practice Mode, so no cooking for the family yet. I might get some chicken or fish going pretty soon. I'll try to get some pix of the Pistachio soon.
